Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #226 'Rich Man's Gate'

'Rich Man's Gate'

I found this gate the other day. It leads to an old estate now owned by a rich guy. The golden colour of the small areas of the door works really nice with the pink and purple clouds in the background. Obviously, in this guy's world, no matter the snow, even the clouds look pink. However, there is a counterpart to that in the dark shadows of the gate reflecting in the wet road.

High contrast between the white part of the sky and the dark ground create drama that one cannot avoid. The rich-looking door and the two stone posts only push that further. The snow on the naked tree branches adds a touch of fairytale feeling to the photograph, which I like very much. Late afternoon atmosphere is the key of this photograph. The light is what brings the most out of it.

Would you open the door and see what's there? Sometimes there are doors waiting to be open. If not anywhere else then, at least, in our imaginations. Oh, did I forget to mention? The guy ran away to London after his misdeeds came to the courts.

Nothing much behind this door. ;)

Enjoy! :)

Beautiful picture, but I so want sunny spring!

Amazing photos I like your style .. Creativity
Thanks for sharing

Sometimes for the rich people there are "low" deeds. But this is only sometimes. Perhaps this is the case. Nevertheless, the gates look exquisite. The gates in the classical style look very beautiful. Although I prefer modernity more, but I respect old things.
Like other your photos, this one has a certain meaning. I see it as you described it. For some people, even the clouds on a cloudy day look pink. But these people live in illusions (although they live well). Sometimes they do not count with those below them. They look up and see everything pink. In other words, simple words - everything is fine. But at the same time the ground under their feet is black. They go ahead seeing the pink sky. But one day they stumble and fall to the ground ... on the black and cold ground. It's the same as removing pink glasses. Sooner or later, all actions have to be answered. Probably this guy is this case. Judging by your description, he did bad things and he had to flee. This is exactly what I wrote about.
Thank you.

It's a beautiful photograph.

I see gates every day on my walk (or more correctly my dog's walk). No rich folk gates on our walk, I'd have to walk a different way and the dog wouldn't get his time off the lead so we walk past normal gates.

I understand why I have my gates closed, it gives the dog a demarcation so he doesn't run in the street. But I often wonder about the number of closed gates and the lack of welcome involved with them. Ah well.

I don't know why it tickles me that this guy ran off to London, but it does seem somehow fitting.

Thanks for another great post.

I love the pink/purple glow everything has

Thanks for your reflective post again. There are many people who have a great front where they live a dream lifestyle with huge monthly income. Many of these people due to their lifestyle did not have saving even though they have a huge income since their spending and maintenance of their lifestyle cost a bomb. Your article should be able to give a thought that we should not envy the rich who appeared to be rich but yet has no saving and may even be in great debt. Live a honest life and be content with whatever we have.

Wow that was really dope @velimir. Your writing is like sipping on really good wine..

I think you were busy Today ;) That's is why you didn't write anything about this beautiful door.
The Door Whose beauty is increased by this snow ;)

I am @junsusukhairi from indonesia. I really like to see this old building or this gate that you have post mr @velimir. To me, the works of ancient architecture are more artsy and classic than the architectural karyaseni of today. I was really fortunate to see this gate drawing leading to an old plantation. Timeless, pibtu gate still looks luxurious and sturdy. The gate looks even more amazing when covered with snow and even look more attractive when the color of the cloud was seen pink there. when I look at the Photography picture of this gate, I imagine if I could see it in the real world I would have been very lucky but in my country in Indonesia it is impossible because in Indonesia there is no winter. Maybe one day I can go abroad to witness the magic of this god.

Great photography

little bit spooky...

Amazing photo. 👌🏽

Very cool photo and gate. :)

Wow! Indeed it is for the rich man the elegant details of the gate, jts beautiful.

The old building is very beautiful. I liked the classic building. more natural and slightly creepy. in the country of Indonesia is a little classic building. the government renovated into a modern building. the value of history just disappears. i hate people who forget history :(

It always looks pink? Cool. It’s like looking through rose-colored glasses.

nice gate, i would like to have in my house

Özgürlüğe açılan kapı gibi

this colors are so peacefull, it's my favorite color palette

The gate glow the essence of a rich life
