Opening Doors, Day 3
Gates are doors, aren't they? This gate is in the Tower of London, the Water Gate that opens to the Thames River. Looking down at this gate, I imagined the boats arriving from upriver or from the estuary, carrying their human cargo, those who had displeased the king and were condemned to imprisonment and death within the Tower walls. Or maybe this was the gate that opened to let in the tradesmen bringing fresh produce or perhaps venison, chicken or fish to feed the royalty, warriors and workers who lived there.
And today you get a bonus photo! The portcullis, another door that allowed entry in to The Tower of London.
See lots and lots more doors at Jientje's blog Heaven in Belgium.
