DOORS

 

“Behind some doors lie our wildest dreams, behind others our worst
nightmares and behind them all always the energy and the adventure
that makes us whole. The challenge is in finding the balance and
the reward is a life enriched with the beauty
and the magic of the world around us…”

Digitally enhanced image created from a photo taken with an analog Minolta camera in October 1992 on the island of Santorini. The door opened to a drop of a few hundred meters, straight down to the rocks and the sea below. Good that it was chained shut, but it was one door that I wouldn’t have been tempted to open anyway. The view was breathtaking enough.
