One day during our travels in China in 2016 we took the subway and transferred to a train (I think it might have been a magnetic levitation system) to visit a village somewhere on the outskirts of the city of Shanghai. I don’t recall the name of the village but it is near a waterway and it has several bridges. A sign directory did state in English that it was the Hongqiao Scenic Spot but I am not certain if it was referring to the spot I was standing on or the entire village. There were many door photo ops at this location so I’m posting a few for this Thursday Doors post.
This first door was near the entry into this alleyway of pedestrian walkways along the waterway. I thought the door monument of the elephant was interesting so I took a shot of it and the door happened to be in the background.
Door #64 seemed to be weathered and might have been an entry gate; I didn’t take the time to peek into the openings to see what was behind it.
The third door was made of several wood panels. The empty wooden chair made a statement to me (I’m not sure what that statement was) so I took the shot. Maybe I was thinking, “out to lunch” or something but that chair was mighty small!
Door #62 adds color to this post with the red lanterns and red Chinese character on the door.
This is the last photo for this post and I’ll leave the others for some other time. I think this door should be captioned “Guardian of the Door”; the little fella came out of the open door to check out what was going outside and was later followed by his buddy but that was captured in a different photo.
I had fun shooting in this location because of the interesting scenery and people.
