Welcome

When taking pictures for Alexandria Daily Photo, I’m often torn between showing the entire building or honing in on the detail. For that reason I’ve started this blog, which will feature only doorways, a favorite subject of photographers everywhere. Photographer: MarieMcC of Alexandria Daily Photo. Taken in June 2006. This doorway is in Southeast Washington DC.
