Entries and exits

Amazing how fascinated photographers are with windows and doors the ways in which they are "treated" in differing countries and in differing ages. Being from a country relatively new to European culture, I am drawn toward old windows and old doors. For me it is often the enter/leave conundrum rather than the physical fact of the door. I guess it is also that this is the way air and light comes into buildings: both of these in their literal and allegorical meanings.
