Thursday doors #47

Today, my last door post of 2019, I’m featuring those doors photographed on my most recent trip to Nice. The wrought iron and glass doors are typical of those found on apartment blocks all over France. These were all along the rue de France, as is the last door though that one belongs to a church.

Never fear, I shall be back in 2020 with even more doors! Meanwhile, I’ll be indulging in my regular seasonal post “12  Days of Christmas” featuring some of my favourite photos of 2019.

Today and the next couple of weeks will feature doors photographed on my latest visit to Alassio, in Italy, most of which were all from the same street! However I’m kicking off with church doors – always rich pickings.

Church front door
Church Facade
Sant’Ambrogio

The Sant’Ambrogio Parish Church was built in the second half of 15th century on a site previously occupied by a small 10th century church. The Romanesque style that characterised it was converted into Baroque in the early 18th century though the bell tower dates back earlier to 14th century. The Renaissance façade, with its sloping roofs, was superimposed in 1896.

Nave

The beautiful church interior of the church contains some significant works. The central vault is frescoed with scenes from the life of Sant’Ambrogio painted by Virgilio Grana from nearby Albenga. There are also works by other well-known artists, such as Bernardo Castello, Giovanni Andrea De Ferrari and Giulio Benso.

Next door to the church is a cinema!

Here’s my last few doors from Australia. As I mentioned two weeks ago, I didn’t have a particularly large selection to choose from.

Here’s a few more doors from Australia. As I mentioned last week, I don’t have a particularly large selection because most of the wooden doors on older buildings appear to have been replaced with metal ones.

A rather elegant entrance in Brisbane
Art Deco block in Spring Hill
One from Townsville
A door in Sydney though probably not the original one

And finally, a trio from Brisbane’s beautiful City Hall

Finally, here’s some doors from Australia. I don’t have a particularly large selection because most of the wooden doors on older buildings appear to have been replaced with metal ones. I guess the problem is quite possibly termites.

This pair were being used for decorative purposes in Paddington

 

This is a church door in Townsville

 

These were the doors of a music venue in Fortitude Valley

 

Another church door on the walk back to Spring Hill from CBD
