Gothic Revival Door

(Ann Arbor, MI) Pictured on your left is a door in the entryway to the Law Quadrangle at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. This is an example of the Gothic Revival style that some America universities embraced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The small rectangular window - itself sort of a miniature of the doorway - is what intrigued me the most. From the outside it is difficult to see what lurks behind the door, but a person peering out from behind the small window can see people standing outside.

I had some trouble finding a decent light setting that illuminated the doorway's features while not washing out the colors. I ended up playing with the hue saturation level in the editing software to bring up the colors a bit.
