The Black Door
This is a photograph of houses opposite Dartmouth Park in Morley, near Leeds. My secondary school was next to the park, so I walked past here more times than I care to remember. A girl I really liked from the other school in Morley (Morley High) I was told lived somewhere near the park, and I came to imagine it was one of these houses, perhaps the one with the black door? I never found out the truth, and part of me is quite pleased that the mystery was never ruined by the tiresome reality of facts. I had the thought that I could make a painting of this scene, but the level of detail required would take me about a year and drive me insane.
