Door to an Abandoned Schoolhouse

While travelling a lonely highway across Nevada, I instinctively took a side road at the outskirts of a small town. Down that road I came upon this abandoned wooden schoolhouse. One detail of the school interested me--the beautiful wooden door.

When the school was built, probably by a group of local residents, they had a limited budget for materials. But some artistically inclined soul decided to make the entrance as beautiful as possible. Notice the cornice at the top of the door frame, and the carefully fitted triangular windows. This project wasn't just cobbled together in the shortest time just to get it done. As in so many aspects of life, the quality is in the details.
