    I saw this door in the alpes this year. Thinking about words to the picture a beatles song came to my mind. Nowhere man could be living behind this door. update: Now I came across the perfect song to this picture "The Alan Parsons Project - A Dream Within A Dream" ..."all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream"... We come to the world from nowhere to in the end go nowhere. https://www.facebook.com/Inkonsequenz if you want to use the picture

    great shot of course.... with a psychological positive reflection , this when man gets to preach each ones own subconscious, there after the locked hidden doors will be a great piece of art attached with and unto the wholeness of nature...! its a great picture

    The plot of a story with hundreds of interpretations, beautiful image which has attacked my point of view about who has walked through this door, what will I find on the other side.

    it is like an epic story all the members of a family left because of war or a catastrophic incident....i really like it the door is a debris of a real house....love it and the view around it superb...

    I think it not about a song, i think it is about a bookseries.

    Stephen King - The Dark-Tower novels (7 + 1 books [The last one should be 4,5, so 7 + 1])

    That is one of the coolest pictures I have ever seen! And talk about a picture being worth a thousand words.
