Day 3 - Watch that first step

We pass this building every time we walk the dogs at the farm. We actually park just past it. Today Peg commented on the number of doors and windows on this side of the building. She thought it would make a good pic. So, I pulled out the camera and took some pictures. I find the blue very interesting. It looks like I did some post editing but that really is the colour; no touch ups this time.
Peg laughed when she saw the picture. She said the upper doors look like mother-in-law doors. Apparently, that's what elevated doors with no step or platform are called in Newfoundland. I don't think you need any explanation about why they're called this. If you'd like to know more about where these doors come from check out this site.

It looks like the entire structure of the building is resting on that bottom middle door. :)

Wasn't aware of that "mother-in-law door" reference. YIKES! Watch that first step- it's a BIG one! :)

Wonder what they were thinking (or drinking!) when they decided on that selective paint job? It's a really fun shot....

I like that turquoise accent - it definitely brightens up the place in the winter!

Love this. The touches of blue are beautiful, especially with how muted the rest of the colors appear.

The blue makes it. Peg was right.
