This week’s challenge is threshold. I chose this picture I took of the Lachine Canal’s St-Gabriel Locks in Montreal. To me, this represents threshold for a few reasons. I took it late in winter, at the threshold of spring. You can see the ice is thin and somewhat translucent, indicating it is on the verge of melting. The lock doors, too, are a threshold in the literal sense of the word.
I have to say this is one of my favourite images. I love the colours and the details in the wood of the lock doors. I also really like how with no indicator of scale, these doors appear to be absolutely massive. They remind me of something out of Lord of the Rings.
