Last month my husband and I drove east and north to Yuba City and environs to find some geocaches. We encountered a different California from Silicon Valley, where we live.
Case in point: the doors on most Thursday Doors posts are attached to beautiful, elaborate pieces of architecture. These, well, not so much.
Doors here, like the buildings they are attached to, are simple and few and far between. They mostly exist to keep animals in or out.
Or to keep them safe while traveling.
But I think I am discovering something about myself as a photographer by doing these posts. As beautiful as human-built architecture can be, I tend to gravitate towards geometric shapes, landscapes, and functional forms whose beauty is shaped by natural forces.
