If a door doesn't go anywhere, is it still a door? This lot on Dawson Street just at the northern edge of downtown Raleigh has been in a state of empty decay for years. I don't even remember what was there or when it crumbled, but recently I've seen guys with bricks and trowels doing things that look masonly and it appears that something is being built there. So perhaps my empty doorway will once again serve in its intended capacity. I'll let you know.Violence Unsilenced

A door which doesn't go anywhere is still a door because the meaning of door is - hinged or sliding barrier to close an entrance. I wonder what they are building?

Great photo. I love the old historical buildings, especially when the buildings are being/have been reclaimed by artists or other creative communities.

a door to nowhere, like a road to nowhere, buuuut, nowhere is still somewhere???

Door is a door is a door! :D

Makes me think of Bacharach/David's 'a house is not home' ... I can hear Dionne Warwicke .. cant you? Listen:

A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home.....


SO I guess it follows that a door is still a door even there's thing behind it .. but that doesnt rhyme...

I love how you often bring a twist to your pictures. You're like an amazing story teller without wasting any words! Have I ever told you that I always enjoy my visits to your blog?

If you're like me, you simply assume the door that appears to not be a door actually leads those-who-know into another dimension. Can you tell I'm a fantasy/paranormal fan?

Mariposa said...

The question you asked is goes beyond this photo...just something for me to reflect on.

Happy WW!

I'm always happy to see people repurposing buildings. At the very least there's construction going on.

I love this picture. A doorway to nowhere must have stories to tell. The whole idea make my want to stand at its threashold and just to get a glimpse of the perspective from the other side.

That, Mojo, is a great find. I'm also intrigued by the bricked-up portion of the wall, too.

Nice job Mojo! Love the structures - and the door to nowhere! And congratulations with being mentioned on the Post Of The Day at David McMahon!
