Photo Challenge – The Rule of Thirds: a literal and almost literary ( 🙂 ) interpretation, taken by chance, earlier in the week (Thursday).
This door leads into Beaufront Castle grounds from the road between Beaufront Woodhead and Sandhoe – I doubt it has been opened in years.
It was not me
Who carved his name upon this once proud tree
For one thing, I support MUFC, not NUFC 😀

I love the way the colours on the door has so many hues in the paint work, telling the story of age and experience. The graffiti is such a snap back to the present. Great composition.
I support the red devils too!
Excellent Lita! – MUFC is not something I mention too loudly around here (not a topic for discussion with my Geordie Pam either). Alan Pardew lived at the other end of Sandhoe when he was caretaker of the poisoned chalice but I assume he has moved on now.
Wow! Football royalty! I was in a pub in Edinburgh quite a few years ago ready to cheer on the reds on TV at the start of the Keegan years and noticed I was surrounded by Newcastle supporters, fortunately ManU didn’t need any encouragement from me!! The Toon Army is for sure a terrific force! I was very quiet lol!!
I take a lot less interest than I used to as a kid – it wasn’t that eventually I didn’t care, it was that I cared too much – all too harrowing.
Love the colours. So much other interest in the details too – it looks like Robin has taken all his girlfriends to visit this door!
Many thanks, it has weathered nicely, unlike the other Robin, I suspect 🙂
I love the color of this door. That grafitti is pretty clever, too. I wonder who “Robin” is? 😉
It is, the sort of distressed colour you pay a fortune for on furniture. I need to find this other Robin to understand his secret 🙂
An interesting and colorful choice.
Many thanks Janet
This is the sort of photo I like to take too…
Many thanks, much appreciated
skillful blend of colours, composition and texture….
Thanks Jim, I think the most significant factor is time – a newly painted door would have had no impact at all.
True, the ageing patina makes for interesting images.
I can’t help but wonder of Gwen and Rob are still together….
Indeed, did they weather as well as the door …
Great choice for the WPC
Many thanks – by chance, those three door panels more or less made it a certain choice.
This door tells stories and you have captured some names on them by creating the rule.
Yes, it does tell stories, old ones that go back to when ‘Robin’ was still young.
Quite an interesting image for the theme 🙂
Loved the framing and colors 🙂
Many thanks Sreejith, much appreciated.
I love the colors and the mixing of the very old with the jarring reminder of how some of us document our “present.” An interesting juxtaposition all around-
Many thanks Meg – that one was a gift, taken the day before I knew anything about the challenge.
Lovely old door. 🙂
Thanks Jo – sorry I have not been active in the Reader much recently, struggling to keep up.
