DOORWAY


Another trip into my archives. Saw this doorway in Orlando, Florida a few years ago and thought it would be an interesting shot to take. Don't know anything about it but I like the primitive feel.
Remember to enlarge the shot to see the detail.

Definitely an interesting door. I wonder who lives there. I'm sure I would've photographed it as well.

The interesting thing is, Highway 61, didnt go to Florida. Hwy 61 is one of those famous highways like Route 66(see my blog)

So where did Highway 61 go to? I'll have to look it up in the map book. I really like this photo, clever you for spotting it.

Beverly said...

I love that. I've never seen highway 61 in Florida. Maybe the person was lost.

Hm, would be interesting to know the story here. It's almost like they wanted to choose another path but it was all they knew...most curious. :)

Glad you are feeling well!

An astonishing capture. Well done!

RuneE said...

A whole story in one sentence - a writer could make a novel out of that.

Good shot!

The door is interesting, but what makes it truly unique to me is the sign. Very tongue in cheek. :-)

Merisi said...

I had to go and check it out, and this is what I found (and look, how very tongue in cheek that sign really was!):

Highway 61 Revisited is Bob Dylan's sixth studio album, released in 1965 by Columbia Records. It is Dylan's first album to be recorded entirely with a full rock band, after he experimented with the approach on half of Bringing It All Back Home. It is commonly tagged as documenting the "angry young man" period in Dylan's career, in-between the playfulness of its surrounding albums; many of the songs on Highway 61 are of an accusatory nature and feature rough, loud takes.
...

Highway 61, sometimes called the "Blues Highway," stretched from New Orleans through Memphis and from Iowa through Duluth (Dylan's city of birth) to the Canadian border.

"Highway 61 Recvisited" Lyrics:

Now the rovin' gambler he was very bored
He was tryin' to create a next world war
He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
He said I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done
We'll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61.
