Old Doors In B&W

With the sun shining and me half way mobile I took little road trip today. I decided to keep it simple, photo gear wise, I took my Sony a3000  with me.The Sony a3000 has a lot of cool features and produces nice images right out of the box. The kit lens is OK, a 18-55mm E-mount lens, but since finding out the difference between good glass and great glass I want more. I just have to keep in mind I have a camera and that is more than a lot have. If in the future, and if I can afford to buy a few nice lenses, I hope to be closer to the limits of the camera technically so I get the most from them. Till then I have to learn to shot smarter to get the most out of this camera. With that said I head out to the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site. I walked around the Memorial building,museum and the grounds on this lovely Autumn day. I want to start with what I think are the coolest set of doors I have seen. The first picture is of what I believe was originally the front doors which are no longer used. It seems these doors have settled on their hinges. As there is no one around who knows how to repair these 100 plus year old doors the entrance is now the back set of doors. The second picture is of the entrance doors and the are left open and a set of modern and soulless doors allows entrance to the Memorial Building. I will post a few more this week from the park.

I am a 55 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 24 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
