I took a picture of this door while in Paris so it’s most likely in the Marais in either 3rd or 4th arondissement. Can anyone identify it?
I took it during the journées du Patrimoine in September 2017 which give the general public access to historical buildings not normally open to the public. I keep meaning to make a note of what I’ve photographed. Though I’ll often remember, just not in this case…….
This challenge is giving me an opportunity to go through my many photos. It’s made me realise how many photos I have of doors! I took this one, probably the oldest door in my “collection,” in the walled town of Laguardia, in Rioja! I don’t know what was behind the door but it might have lead to the caves below the town which are used for storing Rioja wine. I can’t be sure but I suspect this might be one of the oldest doors I’ve photographed.
Whenever I wander around a new place, I’ll inevitably take photos of the buildings, fountains, civic art and such, but I’ll also take pictures of interesting wrought iron street lights and old doors. I always imagine that these doors have such interesting tales to tell about the people who have lived or worked behind them.
Last week’s door was from Alassio, one of our regular haunts. This week’s is from our trip to UK in early September 2018 for a family wedding. I spotted this bright blue Georgian beauty while walking around Farnham. I took the photo through the garden gate’s iron railings.
I’ve just found out about Thursday Doors, a weekly feature allowing door lovers – that includes me – to come together and share their favourite door photos from around the world each week between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time) – phew, just in time!
Above is one of my all time favourites from Alassio on the Italian Riviera. It’s a handsome door in between a parade of upmarket shops and I bet it has some interesting tales to tell, if only it could talk!
