Panels for Portals

Update: I think it’s better to update this post to link to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #204 Doors/Doorways than to repost the same photos to a new post.

Some time ago, after many explorations of the Princeton University campus, I had noticed that many university buildings had doors that would appear at seemingly random and odd places. In many cases, these doors had no "step-up" and appeared to be hanging from the walls. I was always curious to know what lay behind the doors. Were they even real doors or just frames? Or perhaps they were magic portals like the ones in Harry Potter.

Yesterday when I was out walking around Princeton getting some exercise with my wife as well as practicing not going bonkers from living this abnormal life, I started photographing the doors that appeared next to the entrances of the storefronts, and my curiosity returned. I shared my thoughts about the Princeton University doors with my wife, who flattened my fantasies by suggesting that perhaps the doors were entryways for the apartment residents who lived above the storefronts.
