We don’t know the story behind this 1950s photo of Flora Vincent of Pomquet opening the door to the driver’s seat but it is tempting to imagine that it was a significant move for independence when women were behind the wheel.

Here is a door that made an impression on me (Dorothy Lander):
Realist artist Mary Pratt’s door to her home in Newfoundland where we visited her in 2011 on our TransCanada Whistlestop Tour with Women Artists and Popular Educators.
Mary Pratt was just as welcoming as her Door suggested. She served us tea and gingerbread. Mary Pratt is very fond of red. Notice her red sink.
Here is a link to some beautiful doors.
For the purposes of judging the winning image in this community event, the quality of the photo or the drawing or painting is not as important as the meaning that the image holds for you or your family or your community or the world.
