I love doors and doorways. Apart from their functional and architectural appeal, doors are symbols of transition, of endings and beginnings. Of shedding the familiar and crossing the threshold to embrace the unknown! I find them mysterious….What secrets are they privy to? What stories do they tell?
For doors are both frame and monument
to our spent time,
and too little has been said
of our coming through and leaving by them”
~ Charles Tomlinson
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Wonderful set of pictures and pretty unique selection, I should say. I love doors and doorways too. Saw some nice ones in France framed by bougainvilleas and other blooms.
Thanks a lot Malou!
I, too, love doors and am drawn to both the actual and the image of the door.
Thank you for dropping by to comment 🙂
I too have a fascination with doors and have some crazy, unique doorway photos from all over the world.
Why don’t you do a post on doors as well? Thank you for following my blog!
I may have to. I definitely have a fascination.

I love Your collection of doors and doorways. This is one hobby to start with camera.
I saw that You have not been in Finland. Here we have also something to be shown for the world. I have always admired the door of private wooden church made by a female artist Eeva Ryynänen. If the door is awesome, so it is also the church inside – unique.
Sculptor’s private wooden church.
Happy travel and blogging!
That church looks truly awesome! Loved everything – the pew’s, the altar, every detail! Thank YOU for reading this and for the link to your fantastic post!
You are so good! Your words create the perfect frame for your photographs, and this post shines.
Flattered Naomi 🙂 Thank you for your sweet comments!
This post is amuzing to me, because I also did this in Morocco & Spain & Switzerland! I ahven’t made a “door” post yet, but I will let you know when it’s up! I really enjoy that you have a quote for almost all of your posts as well as a brief description of why you took them! Nice touch!

Such a fabulous collection, Madhu – I feel a bit silly now, maybe I’ll have to rethink my Doors post! And as always, fantastic photos … Congratulations, you nailed it!
Delighted that you like it 🙂 Yours was pretty awesome too!

This is a fantastic post. Loved it.
Thank you Mara. Was just over at your blog to check out its awesome content. Will be returning for sure 🙂
So many GREAT doors…love the one in Peru…and the Chinese round one…but I love the ones in Egypt as well – those alleyways lleading to their colour. Heck I can’t pick a favourite.
That is such a nice compliment Jo! Thank you so much. My photos don’t measure up to your surreal creations though!
Love the Chinese ones especially Madhu. Good entry, no pun intended!
Thanks Jo 🙂
An extremely fabulous array of doors. I have a fascination with what doors mean in the greater realm of life. They are repesentative of so many things. You may enjoy the one I posted which has an image that tempts all of my gueats to inquire about the meaning. I always make them tell me what they see in the image first before I tell them. The variety of opinions is endless. Your photo’s are wonderful for this challenge. It looks like it was geared to you.
Thank you Isadora. off to check out your ‘entry’ 🙂
Beautiful pictures! I wonder what stories doors could tell- they’d be so interesting 🙂
I love the Cairo door!
