Wakulla Springs Lodge -- Photo Doors

Four of my Wakulla Springs images grace a panel in four old cypress doors formerly used in the Lodge. My client, who has many fond memories of Wakulla Springs as a child, bought the doors years ago at an auction and recently built them into her new home as a wall in her foyer. The photos are printed on canvas and mounted over the single pine panel at the top of each door.  Originally the doors were painted, so, when stripped, the light yellow pine panels stood out oddly against the redder cypress - so she came up with the idea of adding the photos.  Cool idea! And well executed!

 She wanted images of the Lodge rather than wildlife.  Some of the images I made just for this project.  It re-opened my eyes to the beauty (and photogenic quality) of this historic building.

Thanks, Patricia. This was a fun and memory-making job. Sadly, the Wakulla Springs Lodge, (at least run by the park service), is on the chopping block of FL's new governor.
