Gates and Doors series

Here's another mini-project series on gates and doors. All were taken during my Nite Projekt trips.

Somehow in some way or rather with strange feelings, I'm always drawn to gates and doors especially in the night where each individual gate and door presents itself as the "guardian" or "protector" of the respective building. Not to forget about the surrounding lightings that provide enough brightness and contrast on the gates and doors, along with its own shadows cast against the wall or on the ground. Gates and doors are entrances or passageways that lead oneself into an unknown premises which hold so much mystery, curiosity and even fear. To some, they bring hope and security.
