Door Challenge - The Three Muses

Today's challenge theme at The Three Muses is "doors". Here's my entry which features a door photographed while on vacation and a photo of my daddy. Often I use vintage photos and wonder about the lives of the people in the pictures. I especially enjoyed this piece because I know the answer to the question. He did open the door of opportunity and became someone I'm very proud to call my dad.
