Description
This image depicts an exterior doorway at the corner of a building. The slightly recessed doorway is covered with several layers of paint or materials. There are jagged streaks on the door and the surface is covered with stains. The single doorstep leading up to the door is stained. There is a rectangular sign hanging horizontally over the doorway that reads "DOCTOR'S OFFICE/ ENTRANCE" with a large arrow pointing down to the door underneath. The concrete sidewalk and walls of the building are bare except for stains. There is a cardboard carton sitting on the sidewalk just around the corner from the doorway.
