I found this old barn door where a girl scratched out Boys and took over the clubhouse it seems.

Definitly one of my favorites this week! Very nice, excellent focus, and thoughtful framing. Good job!

This is an excellent photograph. I love this door and the "deadly" cracks me up!

Lovely colours on the wood - is that yellow really so yellow or has it been tweaked post-processing? Love the angle and detail - and the "Girl's Clubhouse" scrawl really does remind me of den's made and abandoned in childhood.

good subject, nicely angled, i like the yellow. meets challenge.

The angle here really bugs me. Maybe you relied on the scribbles too much. maybe I need to see the rickety old structure in all its glory?

I think it's a splendid shot. I love the yellow against the grey wood. Good luck. 8. marcvg

Ownership. What a great aspect of childhood to highlight. I just love how "boys" is scratched out and the girls took over. The detail in the door is great. The yellow aging adds interest. The angle is great, slightly upward the way a child might see it and tilted enough to add interest. Good job. 8, just-married

One of my top ten. This is just a fun, interesting shot. I like the texture and tilt.

this looks so set up. it's hard to believe you found this barn. no one ever writes on the door of a barn so it must be fake. even so, i like this photo :) just kidding, nice work! mag99

This is a great idea. I don't understand how and when the engravings on the plank may have been made. Quite recently, I'm afraid (just for the challenge?). Still, the picture makes one stand still and look back, diving into very old memories. I like it!

I liked this photo very much. Looks like it's been there awhile. The colors on the door are great, and the angle is perfect for "from a childs eyes" . The lighting was perfect for this shot. Was there some post editing to get the color on the left side of the door that way? Either way, it is very nice. Good luck in the challenge.

Thanks for the nice memories! I had my own all boys club, with the same kind of old wooden door... those were the days. This personally hits the spot for this week's challenge. Good luck!

Very nice shot. here I go again. Would love to see this in b&w. I know, I'm partial to b&w, but I really think this would be a wonderful b&w.
08/27/2002 07:44:00 AM
Nice texture, composition and idea. In my top five.
08/27/2002 02:19:00 AM
I like this one. I like the old look to the wood and the green stripe is really nice. Good job. 8.
08/26/2002 11:14:00 PM
Won't the boys have the ability to look the girls in by simply moving that little piece of wood to keep the door closed?
08/26/2002 05:11:00 PM
Girls rule! Reminds me of the fort my friend and I had growing up!
08/26/2002 02:16:00 PM
I love it: the yellow paint, the scratched out "boys." Excellent! This captures the energy of the age group.

As the president of the local chapter of the "He-man Woman Haters Club", I would like to file suit against the perpetrator of this slanderous, blasphemous, and otherwise chauvenistic and intentional display of sexual bias. WhuddEVah the intent is with this photo, noting good can come of the continued supression of the male in our urban society. We want equal pay and equal play :) So... shooowwwwww mmeeeeeee dddaaaaaa MONEY! :P - jmsetzler

I feel that if you left the door ajar somewhat, it may have added more interest to the photo. I don't know what I would have liked to see past the door - perhaps a slight glimpse of a toy. Overall, I like this photo.

Nice concept! Anybody remember the "He man woman hater's club"? :)
