We’ve recently returned from a fun but busy trip to Orlando. We managed five parks in six days, and hit almost every ride we had on our to-do list. It was both exhilarating and exhausting.
I had brought my camera with me, hoping to take lots of pictures. I had visions of capturing endless details at the parks, palm trees and tropical plants. In reality, I only took it to two parks, and it was a challenge to capture decent shots in the crowds and the harsh sunlight.
On our first evening, however, I did manage these shots around the pool at our rental house. The late golden light reflected in the water made for some creative captures.
Two pink doors, side by side, simply begged to be photographed.
For starters, I have always been drawn to the colour pink. Pink in any shade appeals to me: coral, champagne, or watermelon. So when I spotted these doors, the only logical thing to do was to make a picture.
They are almost perfect symmetry, twin doors separated by stripes of white and blue with identical silver knobs. Salt air and rain have aged them separately, however. It seems one has been more affected than the other.
Soon, these doors will open to ice cream and summer breezes. Sand will be tracked over their thresholds. They will be witness to sandcastles and sunburns.
I can’t wait.
