Rogers Door at St Ives Cornwall

You would not belive the trouble I had to shoot this photo.
In a narrow street, Iron bars all around and locked,cars and people going passed -- until the owner
turned up and unlocked the bars and held the traffic up while I shot off a few pics.

Nice guy, to go through all that and help you out. Really cool shot of a really cool door. So I would have to say I am glad you did it, and it seems to have been worth it!

Hello Imac
Old Wom Tigley is showing me how to posts comments today.
I like this door picture very much, I would like to think I would have seen the beaty in that as well.
I thank you for your visits and encouragement. Tom shows me your blog and others on my many visits to him and Jane.
I sit there with a milky coffee in hand and while away sometime looking at what others take pictures of.
Thank you for commenting

A nice old door. It works where it is but would be difficult here in the states on almost anything. It would be like trying to put a Model T Ford on a 2008 Cadillac chassis.

Still, it is a thing of beauty. Like an old woman with a stubble of beard. You want to offer to give her a shave but then you need to protect your head and crotch. Some of these old folks have a mean streak.

I like the door. And I like your photo of it.

What a great story behind a great picture...
I love Abes comment to this as well... that as me roaring with laughter...
.......still I've been laughing most of this afternoon watching Big Pete find his way around a key board with fingers the size of cumberland sausage. The air was blue in Womtigs kitchen at time today.. oh! but what fun.

Sharon said...

Ah a man after my own heart! I appreciate your hard work to get the shot :) Very interesting door, lots of character.

It's just like life that a simple door could pose a picture problem.

There is one door I LOVE to see when I take a particular route to get home from work. I want to take the picture, but I'm waiting until I feel confident that I'll get a fair shot.

Neva said...

I love this door color....nice job.

Ida said...

This is a GREAT shot!

Suzi-k said...

hehe I also love abe's comment, reminds me of Max's post about the vervet monkeys!

Dragonstar said...

It's a shot worth waiting for

Andrée said...

That was awfully nice of him. I never would have attempted that, I need to develop more "boldness" to get the photos I want.
