Stained Glass Image of the Day: Victorian Doorway, Aberdeen.

In his remarkable documentary on beachcombing, The Wrecking Season, there is a scene when Nick Darke holds up a piece of parquet floor tile he found on a beach after a storm. He explained that he'd once been asked what the most remarkable thing he'd ever found on a beach was. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a second, identical, piece of parquet flooring. The only thing he found on the beach that day were those two tiny scraps of wood, a few metres apart...

So I guess it's not so surprising after all that, just around the corner from the Art Deco extravaganza featured yesterday, there should be another wonderful (although slightly more understated) doorway.
