Lamp Shadow

 Lamp and shadow on front door

This building looks like it might have been a church at one time. I've tried to find information on Google, though, and the address is listed as a home. If it's a home now, it's a BIG one.

 More shadows, including door trim

Today I'm showing you only the doors on the front entrance, which have recently been painted. They used to be a rusty hue quite similar to the colour of the brick.

The door

I am linking to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 HERE.

Surely it was originally a church with an entrance like that.

It is quite charming, I love the shape of the doorway. The lamp...I like the shadow better than the real thing!!

Love the twirl. I never get tired of looking at shadows. I think they are often the poetry of a thing.

Margaret Adamson said...

Gosh I hope you took a photo of the whole building? I love the door the lamp and the wreath. Have a happy Sunday.

Lowell said...

I think you wait until the sun is in just the right spot to go out and take these shadow shots!

If the lamp was hanging down loosely would you have a limp lamp shadow?

Very graceful, elegant shadows. Everything about that door says Church.

whatever it is, if the rest of the building is as pretty as the front door it must be very lovely indeed.

That is one delightful door!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Appealing entrance area and so love the lamp design + bonus shadow.

That is a very solid door. Maybe it is a huge family that lives there.

Judy said...

That entry looks like it was either a church or a school...
I love the new colour of the door! really stands out!!!

Paula Scott Molokai Girl Studio said...

I think you're right-it looks like it used to be a small church.

Chandra said...

Hi Tina,
Whoever lives in that home is surely very fortunate!
Lovely captures!!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

It does look like a church. If it has been turned into a home, I'd love to see inside! Well, I'd love to see inside whatever it is. :) Wonderful photos!

Stephanie said...

Pretty door against that red brick!

Kay said...

So nice! The shadows are great. And the whole door looks very interesting: hinges on two sides and an unconventional looking door pull.

Naquillity said...

what a great building. you captured the shadow well.

Randy said...

Love the full shot.

Jack said...

I particularly like the first, close-up shot.

Small City Scenes said...

It looks like it might be a beauty of a house or even a church. Would like to have a doorway like that.

I would love to share the Wild Blackberry Jam with you. Maybe this summer we both could pick some.

That's a very enticing entrance EG, I think it's conclusive.. we'd all like to go in :)

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I love the old buildings. We have a church nearby, turned into a home. This is more common out here!

fredamans said...

Welcome door, lovely old lantern light!

see you there! said...

Great lantern shadow. It does look like a big building for a home.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love the lantern and the newly painted front door. Wouldn't it be interesting to see inside if it's now been made into a home?

Cloudia said...

I simply adore your eye!
