Travel theme: Shine

Good morning from a grey and wet Hastings Sunday.

This week the travel theme is Shine.

Travel theme: Shine

These photos are of our front door.  I just love Art Deco and I was lucky to find this house to rent with loads of Art Deco features.  We have molded ceilings, sunray door handles plus lots of other Art Deco features but with modern heating.

I was fascinated with this door and the way the light, especially the setting sun shone through the glass and giving out different patterns.  So here is a close up of the main glass.

Another of the middle stripe of different patterned glass. I love the way that the colours of the garden are allowed to show through.

Stepping back you can see the different glass design.

Finally the whole door.

What I like about this glass is the way the light shines both ways.  We can see the light shining through from the back, but also the light bouncing off the textured glass in the front and so giving us the patterns.  If you know what I mean.

Thanks for visiting and here are some other great posts for this challenge.
