Red Door



Barn door? Nope. I found this in one of the main sheds at Sloss Furnaces during the Cast Iron Pour in the spring. I'm including this great old sign that was a reminder for the workers when Sloss was in its heydey. I think the Madonna is a nice touch!

Oops, wonder if they realize their spelling on the sign has been wrong all these years? Your...you're

Love that sign. Safety first! The red door is beautiful.

The sign is nice and so is the red door. But then again, I love anything red!

Back a few years, when photography was a favorite hobby for me, I loved doors. They come in such a variety of designs and colors, yet most of them serve the same practical purpose. I hope you'll keep aiming your camera at them.

And the Madonna has her own safety string!

just goes to show you how everyone can see some place different - I've been there many times and have never seen that. great find

The sign and the Madonna are really something!

Nicely done, V. I don't quite understand what the Madonna is doing there...but...

Love the door!

Jacob, I'm guessing someone thought the Blessed Mother would send some prayers up. In the days when Sloss was active, I'm sure there were many many horrible accidents there.It was a hot, dangerous place to work.

Char,
Maybe we need to go shoot some photos together some time!!

Back to the red. It only occurred to me recently that I am drawn to films with a very red theme, such as Powell and Pressburger, red shoes, matter of life and death. If I could only choose one photography colour the it would be red.
