Door of Death.

This is the Door of Death that can be found as one of the entrances to St. Peters, Basilica, The Vatican.
Its so called this as it was used for funeral processions at one time.
Made of Bronze, its a sight to behold.

Hi Steve,

It is a good contribution to the Friday's theme, the black and white is allowing me to see the details of the Door of death at the Vatican. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.


Hi, Steve. Fits in with the theme. The photo can be called as door to the death also. You did capture the details in this B&W vertical format photo. The side lighting intensifies the scene. cheers.

I can't imagine what it would feel like to view those historic and symbolic doors! Nicely captured with good lighting and great composition. Very well done, tfs.

Hi,super dramatic as it goes from dark to light.All the best,Otto.

Original historic door, good contribution to the Friday theme

Hello Steve,missed this one when we visited last year!
Good treatment with the dark going through to the light; like the sepia tones, they seem appropriate.
Have a good weekend.
Regards Jean.

Hi Steve
unusual, unfamiliar and a bit morbid...
fine sepia tones. splendid entry to theme.

Hi Steve,
The over-exposure spoils this a bit for me. Interesting art, to say the least. I was in St. Peters a few years ago, I do not remember this one.

salut steve,
la porte a une signification qui traverse les humanité,,
tu as bien vu une des très importent porte, même si ce n'est pas la meilleur porte :-)
