This is a photograph of a broken door latch - referred to in Newfoundland slang as a Hapse. Rust drips across the white door that it is supposed to keep latched.

I found the old door latch – known in Newfoundland as a Hapse – to be a very interesting subject to photograph. With lots of white in this image it’s easy to use the histogram of the camera’s digital display to easily nail the exposure.
