Hookah bar

I do not know much about hookah bars but it seems to me that the combination of hookah bar and oxygen bar might not be the best match.

This doorway is a lingering photo remaining in my "selects" from the Italy trip. For some reason I never posted it back when I was putting up pictures from my travels, but today Blogger is telling me this is my 1000th post. Somehow a doorway seems to be symbolic of my Second Look project as it has been a point of entry into a sustained way to do something with my photos. Photography can be a pretty private affair if the work only collects on a hard drive and seen only by the photographer. Of course pictures can be printed and displayed, but there are only so many walls.

Ironically the pictured entryway has no door handle, no visible way to open. Not sure what that means, but I do intend to continue with posting my images.

Christmas at Hattie's

'Tis the season to decorate windows and doors and anything else that can hold color and lights... which brings some color and sparkle to an otherwise often gloomy time of the year.
