Empire Mine Cottage Door

I liked the shadows made by the stepped pattern of the brickwork around the cottage door.  Of Course, the garland had a nice shadow as well.
There are more shadows to be found at Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted for us by Tracy at Hey Harriet.

what an ususual way to lay bricks I have never seen that before.

Is it typical of that style of cottage?

Thanks for popping by my blog,

Wonderful door and arches.

Wow, that brick work, and the shadows, are amazing. Looks like a very stout door.

I like the layering effect of the brick archway. It feels like a 3-D trellis leading up to the door. This is nice, the wonderful and artistic detailing of yore...

A wreath on the door—
is it a sign of welcome
or sinister sign?
