Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #204 Doors/Doorways

I used to have a bit of a fascination for old abandoned buildings, of which there are quite a few in the rural areas of Ireland. Here an old cottage.

Here an old shed, possibly still used for some sort of agricultural storage.

And another; the door frame remains but there isn’t much left of the building itself.

There is a certainly melancholy about these places, a history lost and forgotten.

Thank you to Syvia at My Colorful Expressions for hosting this week’s Lens artist challenge – door /doorways

    Oh those are lovely photos! I share your enchantment with old doors and you captured some amazing ones. How lucky you are to live in such a romantic part of the world. The Irish blood of some of my ancestors must be calling me. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing these!

    These old, abandoned doors probably have many interesting stories to tell. If I needed to pick a favorite it would be the old shed (second image). I like the horizontal wood or stone slabs, they add a bit of interesting character to the building. Thank you for sharing these!

    I agree with Sylvia that they seem to have stories to tell. Your pictures have reminded me of the way I used to see old buildings – as if there was something scary but thrilling hiding inside.
