I took this picture because it reminded me of how quickly familiar things in familiar places can change and become a type of mental portal to a new reality. There almost a ghostly quality to the image and to me it evokes absence. There is no familiar person sitting there as I would have expected in this familiar place. The door allows the outside to be seen from the inside or the inside to be seen from the outside. There are two realities here, the outsider and the insider, to me the picture invites the viewer to choose.
