  1. An exercise in googling, and interesting. The climatic conditions must be almost identical to Humberstone in Northen Chile.

    Is the subject of this the door or the left-hand quarter? The door hogs all the light and leaves me wanting to see what lies to the left and whether it is as good as its faded old master look implies. The framing of the door is very tight and creates a sort of tension in the viewing: almost as if was the record of an artefact alone. I like looking at various parts of the scene – the lovely door and the collection to the left of it – but am not sure whether there would be a better composition for the whole.

  2. It isn’t often that I think a photograph comes across as a painting, but this is one of those occasions. Dutch light and colours.

    I do wish that there were a few more millimetres space at the base of the picture, but that aside, this is gorgeous.

  3. I’m right there with Colin on this. That part to the left really adds something. The lighting is just perfect.

  4. I wonder if Bodie is a bit like Rovinj which is famous with photographers for doors, windows and washing.

    I will add to the a bit tight comments. The texture and lighting make it an interesting door.

  5. Presented this way, I want to see more of what is out of frame. The double door is interesting, and there is that hint of an interesting interior. As a study of the door, it’s not framed quite tight enough for me, but not wide enough for the rest. Maybe the middle panel in a triptych?

  6. …okay so I was expecting a picture of a dog for this one…but google put me right too!

    Dutch style indeed. Fantastic light and just enough in the whole frame to create interest and some tension. I’d say that extra millimetre Colin’s after may lose some of the tension for me as the door certainly does frame me in on the right and the jump to the left can only be made with the interest in it. Thus making the ripped wallpaper (?) a key part of the whole. Well seen!

  7. Maybe I need to turn down my monitor; the right edge seems overly bright to me. Nearly Dutch light, but not quite, although how would one get Dutch light as far south as Bodie?
