A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida and southern New England and other places he goes.
of course they're portals and beautiful ones at that.
Now this is definitely my kind of decorations, I'd say 'entrances' Jack. The dictionary describes a portal as a doorway and as you've established there are no doors....!So beautifully done.I took the Kangaroo shots at a place called Pinnaroo Jack about five minutes away from where I live, it's a cemetery with ajoining bushland. The Kangaroos just wander around freely and aren't enclosed in any way.
Portals, doorways, who cares, all that matters is they are beautifully dressed for the holidays. (Notice I used your word from yesterday)
If you can pardon the oxymoron, I think square archways would describe the scene, but not as well as your photo.
Interior archways (http://www.interior-archways.com/). After googling terms like "architecture doorways without doors" I learned more about doors than I care to learn, but finally saw a photo in the site mentioned above. After all that I had to return to admire your photo. Love the garlands and red balls. They are also a fitting decoration to use on outside doorways methinks.
Portals works for me and so does that beautiful garland around the them. It says "holidays" to me.
Thanks for this gorgeous holiday photo and its interesting comments, from you and your visitors, Jack.
Whatever you call them, they are gorgeous indeed and they certainly say "Holiday" to me as well! Wonderful captures as always, Jack! Hope your week is off to a great start!Sylvia
Beautiful shot Jack. Lovely decorations. I have learned so much today.
Ummmmmmm openings? Gorgeous shot and the adult with child at the end just makes it for me.V
I'm not good enough in english to help! For me , they're just...beautyful!
I would still call them doorways or arches even though they do not fit the terms exactly, very festive!
Forget about the brain freeze and imagine you are gliding down that long series of ... in a top hat accompanied by a lady in a gown...
I understand your doubts and like very much the elegant garlands.
Whatever they are it is a lovely pic!
Doorways with-out doors - just perfect for Christmas decorations!A lovely capture Jack!
Well, I'm no help on terminology here. Looks as if you're not having a brain freeze but a paucity of terminology. Beautiful passageway with gorgeous garlands. Very nice shot!
Whatever they are, they are beautiful with the garlands, and your photo is fantastic!
Garlands galore in hallways? Whatever the openings are, it's a superb shot.
PS - weather in LA is lousy today. Luckily every other day is just fine. We had drizzle on Saturday and on Sunday (for the Arty Party) a perfect SoCal winter day.
You're giving me a headache! Sheesh! i was thinking it would be fun to roller blade down that hallway through those whatchamacallits!
Uh, yeah, portals, passages, entryways. Very nice composition, whatever they are.
Amazing decorations. Looks very classy.
Wonderful decorations Jack!
Perfectly decorated square holes in the wall?Like this!
Portal sounds too futuristic for me. How about 'entryway'? Whatever they're called, the Christmas decorations are lovely. Very appealing. (By the way, I also have one visitor from Iran and one from China. I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw those.)
How about "architectural details" - I dunno.... beautifully decorated for Christmas!
How about 'passage' in the singular? I follow your readers' entries with much interest anyway.just GORGEOUS anyway!
