Mansions Door

The Mansions, an iconic terrace house at the top end of George Street, is a subject that I have not explored in the past. When I talked to a friend of mine about my current Doors Project, he suggested that it, and some other buildings that will feature in coming posts, might be worth a look—thanks John. The doors on the Mansions are not particularly spectacular in themselves, but the setting seems to suit their apparent solidity. I also particularly like the way that the detail of the columns provides a sense of elegance. It never ceases to amaze me what is out there when you roam about for a look, this building is only about 100m from where I go to work every day. (Shot with OM2n, Zuiko 50mm f1.8, f5.6, HP5 @ 400)
