Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is “Door”.
Shot with a Canon EOS Rebel SL1

I’m cheating today with this photograph, as I took it back in January, in Paris. I’m going through a benign neglect phase right now, which means I haven’t been going out much, and the doors in my home are just dull.
There is no door in Malaysia that can compare to this one that I stumbled upon while walking along Rue di Rivoli, arrondissement 1. I wonder who painted this. Was it a bunch of different people at different times? What was the original color? Has it been painted over many times? What’s the story behind this door?
And that, my friends, is why I love travel and photography. So many possible stories.
(What do you think of my ‘door’ photo? This IS a photography exercise, so I would appreciate any critique!)
Next week’s prompt: Looking Down
For the full list of prompts, check out my Through The Lens Thursday page. If you’d like to join Greta and I, but not necessarily blog your picture, join our Flickr group, where we upload our photos, and give comments, or helpful critique on each other’s photographs.
March is National Reading Month, so I compiled a list of 5 favorite books for preschoolers chosen by mothers and kids at Everyday Family! Share yours!
