ABC Wednesday: D is for Door

This Door opens to a cave carved into the mountain.  It is on the roadside where we stopped for overlooking the Tuscany Town of Sorano, which we have shown in our previous post.

Here is the detail of this very old, but colorful Door.

How an old stone wall, steel-barred window and an old door in an old Tuscany town, such as Sorano can be so beautiful.

Here is the detail of the Door.

Not everything is old in Sorano.  The arch of this Door way to a local restaurant is real stone.  The stones on the right hand side of the picture is painted.  They probably ran out of the money during the restoration.

Here is the detail of the stone Door of the restaurant.

This photograph of a very colorful garden door was taken by Grace outside the lakeside town of Marta, Italy.

Who said we have to travel half of the world in order to take photographs of some colorful old door?  This door is not too far from our condo.  It is the door of some old houses that have not been taken away during the road expansion project.  The letters on the left hand-side mean No. 22.

These doors make me think of all the stories that happened behind those doors. Are they as colorful as these doors?

I just love the pictures of your doors. The closeups of the textures and colors are wonderful. I also shared some pictures of doors on my post. Come and see.

Door into the mountain sounds like the title of a thrilling novel. Wonderful colours and patinas.

I've been to Sorano! And I took loads of photos of Italian doors during my month visit there in 2006! I can hardly wait to return. I love your photos!

They really all have characters! I love capturing doors and windows, for me they all have framing. Happy Weekend!
