Three Red Doors


Some time ago, I mentioned the use of odd or even sets of objects in photography. Here is an example with three red doors or perhaps they might be called windows? The one to the left is for those who still want to pay their bills via letters (giro transfers) and not through electronic systems. The one in the middle is an ATM  for those who want cash in their pockets, but what is the one to the right? A narrow entrance/exit for those stripped of their money? Or maybe the architect liked to use an odd set of objects in his composition too.

However it may be, I liked the colours, the light and the shadows - and the three red "doors".

I agree with you, Rune! It's wonderful where we can find those interesting shots once we begin to look around -- outside ourselves!! This is a great shot!! Hope your week is going well!

I agree with you composition of red doors, light, and shadows make this shot wonderful -- barbara

The right door is for the bad guys to hid behind after you get money from the ATM :-(

Brilliant shot!

very intriguing the third red door - maybe it is an emergency exit

Two or four would definitely have been less interesting than three. Odd numbers seem to be just as good a photography tip as they are for home decorating.

Great composition! The third door must be reserved for the next great method that the banks develop to handle our money.

The third door is for people like me who don't have any money.

This 3rd door must be there for symetry and harmony in architecture;A door for Zen!
"Three red doors" would be a good title for a fairy tale! :o)
I wish you a nice day!

The third so-called door has no frame around it so at most I would guess it is a push up accordion door.

A door for tall skinny men.

Interesting! I've never heard that thinking about the number three or odd vs. even. I'll keep it in mind. It sure works well here, and of course red is the right color for getting attention, even for the most ordinary of activities.

Flott komposisjon etter mottoet, "alle gode ting er tre"...
Liker fargemetningen!

Becky Jerdee said...

I love the arrows that the shadows make...like an advertisement...come here for cash!

... and the fellow in the photo adds so much.

You were lucky to be there when someone was using the machine!

the third way?

munchow said...

Well seen, Rune. The picture shows a nice play with forms and shapes. But of course it's the guy who breaks the pattern and makes the picture stand out.

Et fint komponeret billede - også med de røde farve i kontrast til omgivelserne. Måske er den tredie åbning til højre forbeholdt til en fremtidig og nu ukendt betalingsmåde? (Hvem ville for få år siden ha' troet at vi idag kan betale med en telefon?!!!!!!

Irene said...

Kult ... du har øye for detaljer, og det litt uvanlige. Røde dører MÅ bare slå an :)

Ha en fin uke!

Irene

Marie said...

And I like your photo of the three red "doors":)

Petra said...

Nice catch, Rune, and I agree with munchow that the guy makes the capture stand out.

Mandy Southgate said...

Fantastic capture! I like the contrast of bright red and white. I hadn't thought about odds and evens in photography before but I'm going to keep it in mind in future. Very interesting.

RIZALENIO said...

Love it esp the play of shadows. Happy weekend! :)

Red and money seem to go hand in hand, RuneE.
