I enjoy pics of doors and windows, and this one - with the ivy - is cool and amusing. I notice the shot was taken in Tennessee; what school?

Is that textured concrete block? Looks like they used to go a long way to try and make concrete block walls looks a little classy, but I'm not sure it worked. I like the picture though. The picture is so much classier than the wall construction. but then, that's often the case.

Looks like no one has opened that door in a while. I like this shot a lot.

Thanks guys, this one I need to go practice post-processing on--getting the almost white paint scheme and the almost black English Ivy is a bit beyond my abilities right now. At any rate, I've taken to wandering about the University of Tennessee campus when my wife is in meetings--as Norm alludes, the architecture won't remind anyone of, say, Oxford, but then our football stadium is a heck of a lot bigger...
