    I’ve been thinking of how to comment on this photograph. I can’t really… Not as in complimentary words. This little description / take-away is the best I can do. Somehow I think you will understand: I feel how heavy those steel doors weigh. I hear them creaking when a storm is close by. I compulsively peel the red paint. I have my eye open for Hansel & Gretel. I will direct them to a safe path.
