February 2021 Challenge: Doors and Windows


Recommended Posts

Many thanks again for the votes for my ER doc photo, lots of deserving photos in that challenge.  This month's challenge is, "Doors and Windows".  I am sure most of you have photos in their collection that could fit the bill.  I am looking for creative and interesting photos taken of or through all sorts of doors and windows (except the Microsoft kind and the old rock band kind 😀).  Here are a few of mine as examples. Can't wait to see what you have!!  As usual, up to three photos per person and all have to be on Alamy.  Entries will close on Feb 28th at midnight New York time.

Sorry about it being too broad, I think we need to keep it to the top three of either.

Are we still allowed to mix and match three images of windows and doors? Say two of one and one of another.

Ed, this one is through the window of La Antigua Abaceria in Seville. If you didn't get there I'm sure it would have been on your list😉

Congratulations on your win Michael. I think you have given yourself a tough one to select a shortlist! I had about 1,000 images just tagged ‘door’ or ‘window’ so not easy to choose. But a good topic.

 

Number 1: did you know that the word ‘window’ derives from ‘wind door’? You can see why from this photo. An old merchant’s house in Leith, Edinburgh.

Number 2: this pub just had to be called this, didn’t it?

Number 3: there are a lot of wonderful doors in Edinburgh.

Well-deserved win, Michael. Congratulations.

Great challenge. I'm addicted to photographing doors and windows, so too many too choose from.

But here goes...

Congrats on your well deserved win Michael.

I didn't have any Covid pic but over 300 doors and windows. A popular subject it seems, so well chosen.

Thanks AVpics.  Nice shots but you need to pull one since only three are allowed for the challenge.

The small one is purely for explanatory purposes, if required, to prove that image one is indeed a door.

How do you get those large images in - it tells me I am limited to 750 pixels wide now?

 

I zoom the photo in my AIM, right click to copy the image address, click Insert image from URL in my post, then when I paste the link, change zooms in the URL to comp.

I open the image's page and right click on a blank space right next to the preview image. I then click on "View Page Info" in the drop-down menu, copy the URL with "/comp/" in it and paste it into the "Insert image from URL" box in my forum post (bottom right).  Works every time.

 

P.S. I'm using Firefox.
