Hello Rakesh, Jenny and Ermanno!! :0) Thank you so much for your comments on this! :0)
This isn't technically a "door", but one of our subjects in camera club was doors and windows, so having that in mind is what gave me the idea for the composition of this shot. #1794488

Description


Taken at Tumacacori National Historial Park in Arizona. This Muuro-ki is a modern construction of a traditional O'odham dwelling, made of mesquite timbers, ocotillo cactus, and mud. This was built in 1997 according to ancient custom by O'odham workers using traditional hand tools.
I scanned this photo, cropped a bit and also added a touch of the BuZZ filter.
