I don’t feel like doing a post today because I had to have my old cat, Amidala, put down yesterday. She went into kidney dysfunction, and the treatment of force-feeding her fluids only gave her a 50/50 chance of living another 3-4 months, then having more treatment and eventually kidney failure. She would have been 17 on April 18.
So my good friend, T. Lee Harris, sent me a picture of the reflection of her beveled glass front door.
I was going through my image folder and came across a pic Dale took of the sun shining through the front door glass onto the wall. I didn’t know if that would be an image you could use for your Thursday Doors thing. If it is, feel free to use it.
It’s a relatively new door, actually. Less than 20 years old. It replaced a 1950s vintage hollow-core monstrosity that my parents installed. Hated that thing with a passion. As soon as I could afford it, I bought a nicer one to replace it. The panels are beveled and textured glass held in place by brass caming. The wall, on the other hand turns 100 some time this year, and survived the 1937 flood as the cracking plaster will attest. As the sun sets, it tracks along the wall through the prisms. Dale managed to snap it at just the right time to get a good light/dark contrast.
Great job, Dale, and thank you, T!
