The Door at Harper Lake

A local reservoir, but I couldn’t find any information on this Building.  I’m assuming it is some type of valve and pump house.

First the Door:  I was told that the Hawk Symbol was part of a Scavenger Hunt Trail…..

And view from across the Lake:

Finally, an image made on Pinhole Day, but not the one I submitted……

The Front Doors from the Inside…….

We toured the New Courthouse soon after it opening in 2016.  Of course the Thursday Doors gives me an opportunity to share now with my new Blogger Friends.

The Court of Appeals is located in the First Floor Lobby and the first Doors you see upon entry.

And just a really nice hallway:

Our Doors Open Denver Tour was led by then Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Nancy Rice, who was involved in the design of the Building.  She was a Great Tour Guide because she loved the building!

Frugal Film Project: April 2020

 

This View no longer exists….Tree branches blew down to change it.  Not sure that the Park Services will take those branches away.  So we have captured a moment in time that is now gone…….

There are three locations at a nearby park where I test every ‘new’ camera and every ‘new’ film.  So I took my first roll of Lomo 800 to all of those three spots.

It was hard to decide which to pick, bit I think the Reflection does work best. The Boat Dock below, was taken at an odd angle and looks best with some cropping:

The Evans School, Denver

#ThursdayDoors

I realized that I had no Door planned for today.  OMG!  And I had just been sorting doors yesterday.  So I’m giving you one of my Indoor Doors.  From the Denver Architecture Foundation’s Doors Open Denver, the Evans School:

You know that I like interior spaces.  I know that I photographed the main entrance…. when I find it I will post it!

For Palm Sunday: Inspired by Alyssa Chiarello

No Palms for Palm Sunday, but something to think about during our time of social distancing……..I recently read the Alyssa Chiarello article “5 Photo Books for the Quarantine Life“, as recommended by Jim Grey.  Social Distancing does not mean that you never go out unless your goal is to go crazy!

And so I have been inspired by Alyssa to go out and document what life has become under these quarantine conditions.  And as she suggests, look back at those photos in a few years and see what is different.  I decided to start with photos of my current state of being, AND the often called for Masks…….These are leftover from my days as a geochemist when I was processing rock samples for analysis.  Seems like they’ve found a new use.

It is also important to remember that  “stay-at-home” does not mean that you lock yourself up at home.  It means maintain proper social distancing when you do have to go out.  The need to go out includes getting some fresh air at the local parks, or taking a safe ride in the country.
