Image In Search Of A Title

Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/11/2013 - 4:40 PM

When I saw this house a few days ago, first I noticed the beautiful color glass panel top of the door, then my eyes run down on the "building" itself, and I can not describe the sadness, what was going through me in that moments.

This image makes me think of dreams destroyed, but left the shell behind for everyone to see it. But still showing the beauty of that place, and I imagined how that felt, when someone used that door to enter into their home.

I was thinking of the title, but just can not find the right one. Would be great if you can suggest the best word/words what would fit the image best.

"What lies inside of us...."
What I see ; A facade. a thing of beauty now crumpled & torn.
But the inside..... Oh, one can only imagine what lies behind that door.... the skies, the tree - it's all a mystery.

It's a beautiful picture.

Glad I made you smile. =)

With so much creativity flowing around here...I'm sure someone will think of the perfect title.

My attention keeps coming back to the stained glass windows. Relating to what you thought of it, I doubt the person who built the house imagined it in the state it's in today.

I like Mikes "Welcome to my House" - it's so fitting.

I like Alfred's "Colorful Past." But then I'm into double entendres.

I read Alfred's " Passing with color" .... and immediately thought of Dan Carmichael's post.

What lies beyond.
Door of hopelessness.
Foreboding entry.

Wow! Thank you for your suggestions.
Lots of great titles. I will look at them all soon, just woke up (I am on a different time zone).


Posted by: Marilyn Smith on 02/12/2013 - 12:10 AM

Hi I am back.
I wanted to write yesterday, but things haven't worked out in the way, I've planned

Thank you so much for your title suggestions. I like every each of them.

You are great! Some of your titles made me smile. I like your sense of humour.
Actually, the last suggestion of yours (Open house), I was thinking to use it on my next image of the same building, which I'll try to upload tonight.

Thank you for your comments, and I love your titles. They are so dreamy.

I love your title, would describe the picture very well.

"Hues of Emptiness"...I love it so much.

That's so funny, but I was looking for something more dreamy.

Yes, I love the colorful stained glass so much. Every time I see colored glass like that, reminds me of my childhood.

Thank you, great title.

Both of them have a beautiful meaning,

Your one is great too!

I like it.

Roy and Loree:
Thank you for your opinion.

It's great, but as I mentioned earlier to Christine, I was looking for something more dreamy to match up my feelings of the image.

I like "Facade".

I love all three of them. Actually, one of your word give me the idea of the title, I've decided to give for that image.

Thank you... yes, I was thinking to give that too, but I wasn't sure if it would describe the feelings what I want to express with that picture.

Thank you! And I like your title too.

That's great too, but not that dreamy what I had in mind.

I love all four of them, thank you.

Wow, I just realized how long my post is, but I wanted to reply back to everyone and say: Thank you for your suggestions.
I will write a new post in a minute, and tell you the title I've choosed with your help.


Posted by: Christine Till on 02/13/2013 - 12:36 PM

I know, Marianna :-)

Have you decided yet?

Thank you Ginny. I love that too.

The Lost and The Lonely


Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/13/2013 - 12:43 PM

Yay! I keep receiving such a great titles.
Every time I want to go and change my image name, I get a new message :)

Thank you Jeffery!


Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/13/2013 - 12:53 PM

So, I gave a title to my image: "Door of Lost Dreams"

What do you think, do you think is the right decision?

Here is the new link to the image, because when I've changed the title, the link got broken.

"Pleiades" Pronounced: play-dees It is the name given to a constellation and it refers to the "Seven Sisters". There is one plate of glass missing and the others remain. Seven is the "Number of Completion"

Although everything else has crumbled the "Seven Sisters" remain intact. Speaks of legacy and strength of character. Not foreboding but beauty!


Posted by: Janine Riley on 02/13/2013 - 2:39 PM

Excellent Tony. That's my vote.


Posted by: Angelina Vick on 02/13/2013 - 3:57 PM

I think Door of Lost Dreams is very fitting. =)

Well chosen.


Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/14/2013 - 12:02 PM

Thank you, I love your suggestion and your explanation. I would love to take that title, because have a special meaning to it, but I can not, Because only 5 plate of glass remained intact, but it's not showing that clear on the image.
The thing is, I searched "Pleiades" up on the internet yesterday to learn more about that story, and it's give me ispiration to create an image in the near future. I will look thorugh my photos, might find something suitable to express my feelings by that meaning.

Thank you, I am happy you like the title.

The other thing I wanted to say: because I've received so many great title, they are inspiring me to create by them meanings.

So today I've created an image, because I love the name of "Passing with Colors" so much.

Perfect title, Marianna. I so much want to peek behind that door, though.

I really like the flowers, too.


Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/15/2013 - 12:24 AM

Thank you Murray.
Yes, you made me think now, what could be behind the door. I will try to look inside, next time I am around that area.


Posted by: Ginny Schmidt on 02/16/2013 - 10:41 AM

You made the perfect choice.


Posted by: Marianna Mills on 02/17/2013 - 11:15 AM

Thank you Ginny.
