Thursday Doors – Abandoned

IMG_2143I had a different door in mind to post this week, but on a walk the other day I spotted this door and couldn’t resist taking some shots. This building is tucked into the curve of a railway bridge for one of the main lines into London, meaning there are trains passing almost overhead on a regular basis.

I titled this post Abandoned, because that is what this door seems to be. The steps are mossy and overgrown, no footprints in evidence. But the door itself is in pretty good condition, and the house to which the building is attached is definitely occupied, despite the damage to the brickwork at the upper right corner.

So does someone live here? Do letters still fall through the slot onto a mat below? I guess I’ll never know, but it’s fun to imagine. I wonder if that’s why I like doors so much, because of the possibility of what might lie behind them, the stories they open onto almost infinite.
