Door Porn?

Door porn is a term that I recently learned from the ingenious Instagram iPhone App, and it speaks about the attention to a particular subject, in this case, doors.  In New Orleans, doors are as charismatic as the people; unique and colorful.

As a good New Orleanian, when Carnival season begins, beads become part of our decor everywhere; “Throw me something Mister.”

I took this shot on my first visit to Austin, TX on October 2011 and I was taken aback by their fascination with the Lone Star.  The State Capitol displays the state symbol on everything; chairs, chandeliers, hinges, doorknobs, etc… etc…  It was a great trip and I now cannot wait to go back.
