Green door

this pedestrian door and its surrounding frame and panels are quite old, but I have the feeling that the opening was originally built to allow entrance and exit to larger vehicles

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

It's always a pleasure to visit you Harry because you find subjects that I see little or rarely and I always like your treatments, whether in colour or black and white

To each his own cerebral color spectrum... I see it blue, but it's going to look great with this brick color!

@Gérard: Yeah, there is definitely blue in that tone. I reopened the image in Photoshop, and the color is red-64, green-89, blue-94. So you win by a bit. Maybe we can compromise on "teal." Thanks for taking the time for a thoughtful reply.

This combimation of red bricks and steel gray looks really nice.

One wonders what is behind the door...and, yes, what its history is.

the shade of blue is gorgeous

this has such an artsy appeal

@sherri: based on an earlier comment I checked the color. According to Photoshop it is Red 64, green 89 and blue 94. so blue does predominate a bit.
