None Shall Pass


For reasons I can’t quite explain, this image seemed appropriate for a Monday morning.

Its from one of the buildings at the abandoned state school, shot on my re-visit to the location a week ago.

Whether is a play on the old joke, (When is a door not a door?) or an attempt at an actual warning, I don’t know. Well … most likely the former, given that “ajar” is spelled “a jar.” Nonetheless, the almost complete darkness that ensues once you pass is enough to make you think twice.

  1. All I can think of is The Lord of the Rings…that scene where Gandalf is fending off the Balrog and warns: “You shall not pass!!”

    Great shot, Bob!

  2. I immediately thought of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. King Arthur approaches the Black Knight next to a tiny bridge in the woods. I love finding little jokes everywhere, this one is brilliant. Disrepair of the building, dirty brown colors, and perfect light along with “door is a jar”, the door in the background – all are important pieces of this image. Very well done!
