The Play "No Exit" was an existential play written by Jean Paul Sartre ... In the play the characters cannot close their eyes or sleep - they also cannot see their own reflections .. they are there forever to torment eachother without rest ... it is existential hell.
I always wanted to photograph this door which is right on my way out from work. So there you go. I've worked here 10 years and there is an exit -- just don't know what it is yet :P

I like this one very much. The contrasting red text with the rest of the frame is very catching. I'd be interested to know how you got that texture into the bricks and door. very dynamic composition too. gave it a 9.

I read No Exit (years ago) first year of high school. I have to re-read it every now and then. A favorite!

Great shot. The sign and the lots of latches just say everything! One of the top ones!
