WPC Challenge: Art Deco Doors in Hastings.

Hastings doors-081

This week  from The Daily Post has asked us for our doors.

For this week’s challenge, publish a new post with a photo of a door (or multiple doors!). Consider how color affects the image, but also think about size, shape, texture, and details — how might these elements add up to tell a story?

As everyone knows I live in Hastings, New Zealand. Our city, along with Napier was badly damaged by an earthquake in February 1931.  So the rebuild was done in the Art Deco style.  So the CBD reflects this rejuvenation of our city. Even today the colours are still important – there is something fresh and summery with them.

It is never boring walking around Hastings as there is so much to discover – all the small details that was so important in the Art Deco era.

    1. Another time. Maybe we should have a bloggers gathering here one year for the Art Deco weekend. Pre-requisite – you all have to dress up for it. I will allow modern cameras though, the old cameras are now in short supply.


    1. I have just suggested to another blogger it would be really cool to have a bloggers gathering here one year for the Art Deco Weekend – you have to dress up which is so much fun.
