Doors of Heaven
I had to prove that I am not all talk, so I got the Nikon D40. Wonderful camera. Even with my 18-200mm zoom, it fits in my shoulder bag among the rest of my stuff. And it does not have the plasticky feel and slow reactions one might expect with an entry-level camera.
Ooookay, there is apparently a great appetite for my high-wire analysis of my pictures. So here goes.
This picture is of heaven's gates. The golden colors give promise of great spiritual riches ahead.
The many verticals symbolize the ascension of humanity and of the individual, or "you" if you will.
The shadow of the sign on the right shows the fading of language and symbols as being important in human life, transcending mere mind and entering spiritual realms.
The locks represent the barriers in our minds and our beliefs which each person has the key to if he chooses.
