Something blue

Cork is a city of contradictions. The old mixed with the new. Modern office blocks sit alongside grand old limestone buildings.
In other parts of the city it’s harder to tell which is which. New apartment blocks sit abused and unmaintained next to the older parts of the city which look nicer and more inviting in comparison.
This door belongs to an old building in the Middle Parish.

    i love this kind of photo; the saturated colours, the age and for me you can’t beat a bit of rust!

    The texture of the weathered door is great. And I notice the shiny new lock. what a contrast.

    Love the photo, great detail, on second look just noticed the curve in the door that the lever has scraped over the years.
