This double door set within an adobe framework and leading from the outside into a courtyard is part of my fascination regarding doors. Old doors in particular. The newer lighter weight doors are clearly more practical and cost much less as they are mass produced.
My doors, the doors that I cannot stop gazing at or touching(!), are those which have been at least hand finished by craftspeople who love their work. Oh, those images of people lovingly making these works of art just won't go away!

Are you fascinated by old wooden doors?

  1. I love the look and feel of old wooden doors too and the most beautiful are of Spanish, American Indian/Adobe, and European backgrounds. I also love windows.

  2. I am Lucinda, and am clearly taking on a new photo project one day when I have time again.
    Yes - touching is definitely one of the sensual "must-bes" when talking about handcrafted old things. Imagine the stories that might live behind those doors...
    At an age of 18 I went to Barcelona on my own while being on holiday in Spain with my Dad and what I loved most was exploring all those hidden patios in the city when it was not yet tourist loaden...
    I had no fear of being robbed, or even molested and people were extremely friendly... It was a wonderful time. I only wished I would have had a digital camera at that point of time - LOL

  3. Hi! Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog! I'm a regular visit here too and I must say all of the photos you publish are 'my style' so I love browsing through your blog and hoping that one day when our house is finished it will slightly resemble some of your pics, fingers crossed! We still have a long way to go but I can dream right?
    Take care, Claire
