Went on a shoot to Montsalvat with the talented Mr. Bear yesterday. It was lovely, though I seem to have taken a lot of photos of doorways…

“Montsalvat, founded by Justus Jörgensen, is Australia’s oldest artists’ colony and is home to practising artists. It remains to this day a working not-for-profit arts centre administered by a board. Set in 12 acres of established gardens, the historic buildings include charming mud brick cottages and the impressive Great Hall which hosts a variety of concerts, exhibitions and functions.

A range of spaces are available to hire for artistic endeavours, weddings, business conferences and photography shoots."

    Doorways make great subjects, like the colors and textures of the stone here.

  • Thanks. Yes, they really do. Especially when they have so much character.

    This is just such a doorway, that I would like to have!

  • Isn’t it just! Somewhat symbolic, I think.
