[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Doors is one of my most beloved themes here at TE.
This door of an ancient old two flat house in Kars (a nice city very close to the Russian border) was still in use when I notice it during my recent visit end of March this year.

Kars is by the way a city where the famous Russian writer Pushkin had spent some times and mentions in some of his books.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Photo gagnante par son sujet et sa mise en image.
La fermeture n'est plus complètement assurée ! ;o)
J'aime beaucoup ce genre de prise de vue (savoir regarder).

Witaj Mesut!
A sad view, but the old doors are impressive.
I like such paintings.
Good frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Nice day.

Ciao Mesut, lovely composition with beautiful old door, great texture, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Mesut,
I am also a fan of doors, especially rickety old ones like this one. Makes for a very interesting study in colour and texture. Well exposed with fine rendering of the peeling paintwork and the textures. Some appealing shadow play as well.

Hello Mesut,
It looks like the door is still locked, but it seems possible to get inside in spite of that. It's always a bit sad to see old houses falling to pieces, but these doors carry some beauty into death. The photo is well exposed and the shadows become part of the composition.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hello Mesut,
An excellent close-up photo of this old, dilapidated door with two numbers one. The light is excellent and adds a beautiful pattern of shadows across the composition.

Bonjour Mesut,

Je ne crois pas que cette porte va empêcher grand monde d'entrer et je ne crois pas que grand monde voudrait s'y aventurer. Pour les textures par contre, c'est extra.

Hello Mesut,
the wooden door as the house looks abandon but as you write in your note is still in use.Never mind is a good documentary shot from Kars.


Ciao Mesut
in questo caso il n.1 non è il primo arrivato, ma il primo ad essere nato....
Una porta originale, il lucchetto ormai serve a poco, ma completa perfettamente la foto.

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo poakzano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepa stara kapija na kuci sa brojem 1.
Lepa, stara drvena kapija i detalji.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful look, good text ...
Beautifully crafted, good contrast, beautiful colors.
Nice old gates at home with number 1.
Nice, old wooden gate and details.
I wish you a beautiful and successful day, all the best.

Hi Mesut,
Wonderful addition to you door collection. The other half of the door already fallen, this is in a serious state of disrepair. Crackling paint adds to same feeling. Fun to see number one twice.

Hi Mesut,

Merhaba Mesut Of course that one could be the 'number 1' of your collection of breaked doors! The vintage spirit is quite evident and masterly expressed. Salamalecs
