Zen Monday: #166


Welcome to Zen Monday! Is this your first? Here's what we do on Mondays:

Because the Zen pupil learns from experience rather than from lectures or books, Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about.

That's it. Have at it.

Update:
Oops! Almost forgot to tell you I have a new piece on Altadena Patch.

33 - more or less. How about EE...
from RR (random ramblings).

Book Dragon said...

I see a man bent down with despair and an angel's wing

Shell Sherree said...

Oh, at first I thought Book Dragon was being Yoda-like, but now I see them, too!

Susan Campisi said...

I see it too! Thank you, Book Dragon, for seeing something poetic in this rusty, old abstract piece.

A prison cell door, but at the back of a row of shops I imagine, and not really a prison. Just a prison for those employees forced to work there 5 days a week- all glitter and gold on the front, but stark and functional away from the shoppers' eyes?

I think I see the image of Mother Teresa on the door. Soon it will be a shrine.

"Employees are required to wash their hands before returning to work."

"Wash your hands often to help avoid the spread of diseases."

"To reduce your carbon footprint, use your hands instead."

looks more like security took someone out back and roughed them up against the door.

it used to be 333 (half of 666?) but they not only knocked the crap out of the guy, but knocked off a number from the door!

Gosh I feel dull now. I didn't see any shapes in the stains but the Architect in me had a quiet giggle at a "security" door with the hinges exposed. One tap with a screwdriver to knock the pins out of the hinges and anyone could simply remove the door and walk right in.

Bellis said...

Duh! We've been looking at it upside down (the copyright was a clue!) It's a window, not a door, though you'd have to fly up there to get in.

Where LP's go to die.

Irina said...

Long and hard working door with wrinkles all over the face.
I have award for you and glad to inform you about that! http://irinapictures.blogspot.com/2011/10/awarded.html

A rather modest trying to blend in with the wall kind of a door, much more of an exit than an entrance.

Ms M said...

Fun comments! I see the angel helping the person in despair; and perhaps it is a place where old LPs go when they die.
It could also be where Agent 33 enters to meet with Agent 99 and 86 in their battle with KAOS....

Al Capone's Vault before Geraldo Rivera. Intimidating but empty

"I appreciate your taking the time to go through the word verification and make a comment. You are a nice person. Also smart and good looking."

...Petrea, I love this come-on!

I see a gorilla.

Virginia said...

I fail so miserably here on Mondays. Help me stop . All I see is a bad ole door that would be really interesting if it was a lot rustier. Aw shucks.

I was going to say I saw a horsie and a duckie, but I changed my mind …

Petrea Burchard said...

This one is proof that you all will generally come up with many brilliant things if I just give you the starting off point.

I had to have John show me the man bent over in despair (not to mention the horsie and the duckie), although I did see the angel's wing when Book Dragon pointed it out. And I hate to admit I didn't see what Dive saw! Ha! Security indeed.

Chrissy, I don't remember what this is the back door to; probably a design or industrial shop, judging from the area of town I was in. But it could be spies (Pasadena is not known for spies, it's an excellent cover). Or it could be, as Cliff said, where LPs go to die.

You are all smart and good looking (glad you like that, Laurie).

Or at least inexpensive.
