Doors

I like doors. They’re beginnings and endings, leading you somewhere or preventing you from going somewhere. They say a lot about what you are entering or leaving. Here are a few I’ve seen on this trip.

This one caught my eye in Florence in the courtyard of what is now an apartment complex. But what did this door lead to before the building was renovated?

Some doors are interesting because of what’s around or on top of them. Like these two I saw at the Chiagani Academy in Siena, Italy.

Or this one at the cathedral in Perugia.

Some doors are quite simple like the door on The White House in Woolpit, England.

Others are beyond elaborate — cathedral doors, for example. These are on the Duomo in Florence.

Some doors are small…

while others are large.

Some say this door looks like the gate to paradise.

I prefer more simple doors…

preferably with no guard standing in front of them.
