(Sweetly, you smile so sweetly;
You smile like flowers blooming in the spring breeze, in the spring breeze.)
Teresa Teng (邓丽君), Tian Mi Mi (甜蜜蜜). 1979.
Teresa Teng (1953 - 1995), was a Taiwanese pop singer renowned for her folk songs and romantic ballads. Throughout her life, she recorded in a myriad of languages, including Mandarin, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Japanese, Indonesian, and English. Her voice and tone have been described as bittersweet, mellifluous but sorrowful, hopeful and yearning. Teng’s popularity soared in the 1970s after professional success in Japan, and her music spread throughout East and Southeast Asia. In the 1980s, even as her music was banned in China due to political tensions between China and Taiwan, her songs continued to be ubiquitously played, leading to the quick removal of the ban. Teng performed in Paris in 1989 in support of the protests of students at Tiananmen Square (天安门广场).
Tian Mi Mi (literally, “very sweet”), recorded in Mandarin by Teng in 1979, was written by the late Zhuang Nu (莊奴), set to the tune of the Indonesian folk song Dayung Sampan. The film Tian mi mi was named after and features Teng’s song. With simple and sweet lyrics and expression, Tian Mi Mi became a hit song, one of Teng’s most popular contributions to musical culture.
Doors are a barrier between two worlds. There is an outside world that you are a part of and there is the world inside which you can’t see. The door offers a glimpse into that unknown world helping you imagine what it must be like inside.
You have a choice this week of black and white or color.
Here are a few tips:
1. Take a few steps back and use a longer lens. This will minimize lens distortion. You want to do your best to keep the vertical lines vertical. If you are using a phone camera, step way back and consider cropping to the best composition.
2. Pay attention to the lighting. Doors are usually set back in their frames. Try to avoid lighting that casts a shadow across the subject.
3. The scene surrounding the door might be just as interesting as the door itself. Experiment with different compositions.
Symmetrical images might work well for you. The choice is yours!
Submissions are due by the end of the day (your local time) Sunday March 25th.
Title: lock me up with love Author: Anonymous Rating: Explicit Words: 29,657 Pairing: Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson
“So you must go out more often than I thought,” Harry said. “I see you all the time now!”
“Well, one of those times you literally came to my door.”
Harry laughed, a loud honking sound, a shock to Louis’ ears. He couldn’t remember the last time he made someone laugh, not so easily and genuine.
Harry didn’t seem embarrassed, but his eyes were hazy, hair a bit mussed up, cheeks red. Oh. He was drunk, or tipsy maybe. That explained a lot.
“That’s true,” he said, then frowned. “Oh no, do I seem like a stalker?”
“Eh,” Louis said, “just a little bit.”
Louis had a messed-up knee, ruined career, and labradoodle to take care of. Harry had a normal knee, perfect career, and concern for his recluse neighbor. Harry’s baking skills were enough to bring them together.

I have been in one of the most historical towns in Galena, IL the last 2 days. Oh my my the doors 😍
But I am a stickler for my backgrounds and “clutter” in my photos so I went with a relatively “boring” shot on this submit.
Thank you @photochallenge2018!
Hi @naturelvr69, ain’t nothing wrong with a good ol’ fashioned door! I love the way the blue light creeps through the cracks in the wood and frames the door, I also spotted an owl face in the wood which made me chuckle-Mojo. :)
