Shadow Portal

Portals often hold secrets for anyone curious enough to enter them. If you dare.



As I've said before, anything within the vicinity of the Santa Fe Plaza is bound to have a vignette of some kind vying for your attention. Doors are always a good way to demand attention-done right, of course.


Such as this one.


Here's a closer look:


You might be wondering what is causing this curious shadow. It is the lattice work above this hall that is an exterior hall of sorts-or alley if you have an easier time with that image.


"Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see." (Martin Luther King)

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.

What a marvelous find! Not just the door, which is gorgeous, but the shadows within.

I have a weakness for doors and gates and I really like this one. Good job, Paula!

That is a beautiful shot - love the colors

Turquoise seems to be a color of NM - I think of rings with the stones of this hue, and now doors are of the same bold color - a color I like. Perhaps turquoise is one of the beautiful things in the Land of Enchantment!

Fascinating latticework of shadows contrasting with the verticals of colour and the delightful blue of the door!

A very interesting door and accompanying shadows. The colorful door is definitely eye catching and inviting.

I love this kind of colorful doors. It a pity that most of the cities look so boring...
Happy Sunday!

Yes, I like this too! My building's hallways and doors could use some colorful treatments like this! I am glad you enlarged the glass SSS reflection!
