Today is all about gates and gateways. It's #gatethursday in the #sevendaysoutside challenge initiated by @erikah I have had these two photos on my desktop for at least six months and was waiting for the opportunity to post them. The contrast between these two images is what interests me.
This first blue gate below was photographed in a village in Cambridgeshire.
I like this distressed look although in this case it is natural rather than made by artifice.

I took this second photo of a gateway in Dubai. I can't be certain but I think it was the gateway to the Palm Jumeirah complex where they built a whole new coastline. I took this from the car park hence the strange feel to the image.

These two gateways couldn't be more different. One is old and dilapidated while the other is brand new and pristine. Which one do you think looks more attractive? It is just a matter of subjective taste. There is no right answer. This is the last post in this series.
Make sure to use your own original photographs and have some fun with this. :)
