My World: Tumacacori Doors (part 3)

Door to orchard seen through mortuaty chapel door 11-5-09

The shadows of the past fall on the arched doorway of the unfinished morturay chapel.


The shadow of Tumacacori Mission falls on the graveyard.


Doorway to the convento and an ordinary life.

Doorways. They are so symbolic. As 2009 draws to an end with 2010 just a few days away, I can't help but think of it as passing through a doorway to a New Year. What will 2010 hold for me and for all of us? Will I pass through the open doors that present themselves to me in the New Year? Will you? What will happen in MY World next year? I will never find out if I don't go though that door! Click on the link below. It is your door to other worlds!

Marvelous post, Kathie, and I agree with Bobbie, these are indeed beautiful and symbolic photos. I, too, wonder what's on the other side of the door for me in the coming year. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

I love doorways. There is a meme on windows and doors hosted by Teach Mary, I hope you join if you haven't already.

Oh my. The shadows in your photos are incredible.

This past month has been less than ideal for me and a lot of folks I love. Your analogy of passing through a doorway to the new year is just what I needed. Thank you for that.
