Many houses in this small town are very very old. The houses are almost falling apart. Here you see a door of such a house. People are still living for generations. The door is a wooden one. On both sides of the door, there are two small shelves where the earthenware lamps are lighted and kept for prosperity

Nice symetry image with the old door as subject.
Also the decoration above the door make the picture extra lovely.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

we can see a lot of things in this composition, there are several objects hanging of the wall and of the door, which they give a good graphical wealth to this image of the old wall.
The photo has a great sharpness and a good luminosity, as well as a few very natural colors, which give it a good aesthetic level.
I wish a Merry Christmas for you and for your family.

A good close-up on this interesting old door, which has no doubt seen many people pass through it in its time. Good rendering of the tones and textures.

Un cadrage serré plein de charme sur cette très vieille porte. J'aime les couleurs douces et les traces d'usure sur les murs.

Old door with a metal section, decorated with flowers and charms, beautiful images.
Good shot severity, contrast and display.
Have a nice day and time, in our first calendar day of winter and cold.
All the best.

Ciao dear Lakshmi,
also this is India, the real one of the common people, that of every day, that of the poor but dignified people. You have captured a beautiful close-up, with perfect photo quality, especially the sharpness and the definition of the details. Sincere compliments, dear friend!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!

The idea is a nice one, Lakshmi, but you might have taken this with full door hight in view.
Nevertheless, brown color contrast the light green wall.
Have a nice Holiday weekend,

cette porte et ses teintes crée une bonne complémentarité de couleurs avec le vert passé de ce mur.Prise de ce pOV on a l'impression que cette porte nous regarde.
Bonne journée et bonnes fêtes de fin d'année.

a curious and very interesting door, full of details we don't see here. we can see how it was panited not so much time ago and how it is damaged by use. nice job.

Hola Lakshmi ...
A door with a lot of substance, yes sir ...
decorated with many charms, most likely to give
good luck to the people living in the house
and out the bad stuff.
It's an interesting image, I like it.
Saludos amigo mío.

Hello Dear Lakshmi!
The old door seems to have very important functions, which is more than a mere doorway to simply go though to enter a house. Above the door I see some items fixed to protect the house (?). Such items are most eye-catching such as a stone with a black thread tied and hanging above the door. This kind of symbol here in my country is use to indicate to people not to proceed beyond certain points. We often find such stone in gardens. Here this stone is placed there to prevent an unwanted spirit from entering the house? Well-used doors try to tell us many stories. I wish that I had the knowledge to understand the meaning of all the beliefs associated with doors. The photo is full of such representations. The doors are alive and well cared for. The photo reveals full of symbolism to be understood, it must be intriguing to understand the meaning of them.
With my very best and warm regards,
Have a very nice evening, Lakshmi
P.S : I apologise for the delay.
