Rusty doors

Despite permission to explore, we found many of the buildings tightly secured. This one had a cylinder welded around the padlock so it could not be easily pried by vandals (which we would never do, anyway), Still the rust made a good image.

Find picture of this impressive rust. I guess one just have to wonder what’s on the other side

Splendid textures spotted in these rusty doors! Soon the climbing vines will take them over. :-) I've never heard of cylinders that are welded over a lock to prevent prying. A good idea.

The doors are nicely framed by the vines. I really like all of the different textures of the metal doors, brick wall and green leaves.

There may be a lock, but it almost looks like one could just push the doors open.The door frames look rotted out.

@B. Thomas: appearances are deceiving - the door was solid
