february 7 on 7

Seven photos on the seventh of the month - a no pressure photo project with like-minded photo friends.  No rules and no themes (unless we decide to) - just tell a story with some favourite photos from the previous month, and link to the next person in line.

As I started pulling photos from my January archive, I began seeing a theme.  There seemed to be a lot of steps, paths and gates.

From my January Viewfinders post.

I'm always intrigued by what's down that path or through that door or up those steps.  Recently, I was reminded of a film lecture during my long ago college days where we watched a Hitchcock film (I wish I could recall which one...).  Hitchcock was a master of suspense and one scene in particular has always stuck in my memory -  a character walks down a hallway and through a door out of sight.  We all know that *something* is going to happen in that room and my fellow students and I all leaned to the right and craned our necks as if we could actually see around the corner.


For me, there is something so appealing visually about pathways and stairs (and doorways too).  Photographically speaking the perspective is what draws the eye.  But my feet (and sometimes the dog pulling me along on his leash) also want to go that way.


What's down there?


What's through there?


What's around that corner?


Let's go see.
