Doorways to somewhere

This week I’m editing our Polaroid book; next week it’s back to my own manuscript. There are a heck of a lot of words flowing out of my fingertips these days; if i’m lucky some of them will be good. My blogging is going to be light for the next two months as i birth these book babies, but i’ll still be popping by for a tiny hello. I miss my blog when i’m away from it for too long. I miss you guys!

I’m currently being sustained by my iPhone, of all things — the Instagram app has been a revelation and I’m loving sharing snippets of my day there. And a little project has grown out of my sharings — Bath doors. Every time i go into town i shoot a door that catches my eye and share it on Instagram and Twitter. Nothing too serious, nothing too taxing, but a welcome visual break from all these words…

So tell me, are you enjoying 2011 so far? x

    Susannah, just found your blog recently…love your photos!
    I also signed up to be notified when you start the next Unraveling
    workshop, what a great idea. I also use Instgram…my new favorite
    app in the whole world, these shots are great, Bath is a very
    photogenic place. It was the highlight of my trip to England last
    year. Look forward to reading more of your stuff. Thanks!

    I love photos of doors, they always feel like they’re full
    of so much possibility. Also, that instagram app is awesome! I’m
    thinking of getting an IPhone and one of the reason is for the cool
    photo apps. :)

    world hanging onto my blackberry :)

    Kathryn, Don’t mean to jump in and reply on Sus’s page, but
    just wanted to let you know that you don’t need an iPhone to use
    Instagram. You can download it to your Mac or PC and use it on your
    existing photos.

    oops, I can’t figure out how to delete my reply above. So
    sorry Sus! I was thinking of the wrong app. Instagram is an iPhone
    app. Camerabag is the one that you can download on your Mac or PC.
    Sorry about that. Shutting up now *tail between legs*

    Lovely photos Susannah! Can’t wait for your book, and i
    need to say that your worksheet that was in your previous or one
    after blog post was amazingly helpful.

    Somebody did a wonderful poster of the doors of
    Christchurch (Christchurch, New Zealand, that is). Sadly, many of
    them are behind safety fencing at the moment because of earthquake
    damage to the buildings. I love the first of these photos
    especially – is that Bath abbey? We had about half a day in Bath,
    did a very whirlwind tour, mostly of the Roman Baths.

    I LOVE door photos and have quite a collection of my own.
    And of gates.. there is something about openings and where they
    might lead. Good luck with your writing. A very exciting time for
    you. Look forward to your blogging when you have time :)

    Yes, it’s Bath Abbey!

    There is something so intriguing about doorways and these

    Sending you good vibes for finishing your books –
    especially because I can hardly wait to read them! Reading your
    posts reminds me of when I was finishing my thesis – nearly
    everything fell away during those last few months as I raced to
    meet deadlines. Loving the door photos – I was obsessed with them
    when I lived in Siena, Italy years ago and took hundreds of photos.
    Now and again my obsession pops up again – like when I’m in NYC or
    Philadelphia. Those cities have great doors.

    You and Bindu Wiles are making me crave and covet the Iphone just so i can get this instagram app. Need one now. Lovely post.
