The Metaphorical Door
The Metaphorical Door
The photo prompt from The Daily Post at WordPress this week is Door. This one had me thinking. I can see all kinds of symbolism in doors, and going through to a different, or better place. While I was wondering what kind of photo would show up for me, I saw this.
These two trees were like a doorway on this path. A path that is a new one for me, and I will have to go back and explore.
But it also got me thinking. This weekend is our first art show of the summer. Tomorrow we will head over to Teton Village so we can be ready to set up the show on Thursday. The difference with this show, and all the shows we have this summer, is that we are showing my photography almost exclusively. In the past, we have had some of Al’s sculptures at the shows too. But now, it’s kinda all about me, and that is making me very nervous. We created all the framed photos, and I think we have some great products. I have also been picking up cute odds and ends to decorate the booth with, and hopefully that’s going to make a big difference with drawing people in. (And selling them stuff)
So I feel like I’m stepping through a metaphorical door, and hoping it leads to someplace good.
I think it is only natural to feel a bit nervous as it is different than what you are used to. I am sure that the photography will go over GREAT!! You know I am a fan!! Best of luck at the shows!!
I wish you WONDER and REDISCOVERY Mary, as you walk through this door. I just walked through one yesterday, and I was tickled with such joy…and it happened right here in my own home.
There’s nothing like taking that step into the unknown. GREAT PHOTO! Anita
I am so excited for you Mary! It would be wonderful to live closer so I could come and explore your wares and support your efforts and experience your creativity at work creating wonder and awe all around.
I love the metaphorical nature of your door photo — very inviting and intriguing.
You will be a big hit Mary! Your photos and frames are spectacular like the Tetons! Haves some photos of Sam Elliot in your booth also.
With how gorgeous your framed prints are, it will be a sell-out for sure!
Your photos are stunning and I’m more than a little envious of your lifestyle. Good luck!
nice photos and interesting interpretation – doors ARE – everywhere and we make choices whether to open or walk by. Glad I opened this door and walked in. Have a wonderful day and week ahead.
Thanks so much for stopping by, it’s always so fun to meet new people.
Love your thoughts on the word “door.” You are right about the fact that you are opening a new door:) I am sure you will be very successful. I do believe your new frames with be a big hit as they show off your photos. Why aren’t you showing any of Al’s sculptures? Good luck with the show. I love your closing photo:)
We only have a couple sculpture to show, all the rest are in the gallery here in town. And thanks, I hope it’s successful too.
I hope you sell well, Mary. You certainly deserve to!!
