  14. They are all great doors but I LOVE the blue weathered one. Whenever we are away I take photos of doors too…it must be an artist thing.


  15. Fascinating photos of doors. I especially like the garden door (5th picture).
    I do like your page, of course the door sprouted wings, isn’t it funny how that happens and I love the leafy border at the bottom.

  19. Doors are quite a magical symbol. Your photo collection is wonderful – such a huge variety of doors. But best of all is your lovely piece; the door with wings really captures my imagination!

    Love your door and all the photos of other rusty, crusty doors you took. Is it the adventure of while lies within that makes us so drawn to doors….?xox


  26. Wow, that’s a lot of doors! And they’re all so different. I like the close-up pictures you took of the weathered surfaces best.
    Just to think of all the people that these doors have seen coming and going!
