Vicki had this wonderfully voyeuristic idea that we post photos of our front door view. She was very precise in her instructions; precise enough that even a neophyte like me should have been comfortable participating. For example, this set: "Stand in the doorway of your home. Face to the outside of the house." Then we are supposed to snap a photo. Simple enough. Take a look:
My house actually has TWO front doors - one that opens into our living room, and one that opens into our bedroom that is never used. Vicki's instructions further state: "There doesn't have to be a circus going on in your front yard. The point is just to post whatever you see out your front door." Okay. Technically, our front door is more like a side door - so if you're standing on the porch, facing the street...you would see this:
Probably more appropriate, seeing as it is our front yard and all. And technically, it's from a front door - just not the one we use. Later on, she mentioned we should be taking photos of "the doorway you use to enter your home." Hmmm...well, the "porch view" is the view from the doorway OTHER people use to enter my home. And the door used by politicians and religious cults to hang their flyers. However, we always go in the back door. What the heck, here's that view, too! We are forced to use the back door because we don't have a key to the front doors. They have old-timey doorknobs, and we usually just deadbolt and chain them from the inside in order to secure the house. Of course, a bunch of other folks use the back door. Enough other folks that Songbird even bought Roger this sign for Christmas present:
And finally, this isn't the view from my front door, but the view from our FUTURE front door from our new home, to be built this year. It's my favorite!
