Old Lock

This old lock is at the Duke Homestead in Durham, North Carolina.  Duke Homestead was the home of Washington Duke, the philanthropist who brought Trinity College, now Duke University, to Durham.  The black and white image brings the focus on the lock rather than on the wooden door.  I like the how the texture of the wood and, to a lesser extent, the hasp, contrast with the smooth surface and hard edges of the lock.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
