This week CHERI LUCAS ROWLANDS 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.
This door is above the Information Centre.
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.

Thanks for visiting. As my Internet is playing up I will be trying this evening to catch up with everyone.

Those are really excellent. Lots of reflections, color. Sharp and rich.
A great day was had by all. Hastings is definitely not boring.
I’d read about the Art Deco façades of Hastings, so I was sorry not to make it there during my visit to New Zealand.
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.
I love Art Deco..it would be great to visit Hastings and see the Art Deco
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.
