Who loves to take photos of doors? I do!
I adore pointing my camera towards an Art-decó door, or one of those typical English country doors with roses and ivy all around that can be found in villages here… Or perhaps a church door with intricate wrought iron details, or an Andalusian patio door, a brightly coloured door, or just a door. And I know I am not the only one: On Instagram there is a hashtag named “doortraits” for fans of beautifully decorated entrances.
I love that for some people a door is just more than just the entrance to a house but a decoration opportunity in its own right. Below are some of the photos of doors I have taken through the years. Featured image, a door in Prague, Old Town area.
This door can be found in the Hotwells area in Bristol. It belongs to a former church which has been recycled into a community centre.
Some doors open out into the garden, such as this one, found at a stately house near Reading, England.
Door belonging to Holy Trinity Church, Colchester. The door actually includes bricks from ancient Roman buildings in the area.
I found this beautiful door whilst walking around the Gothic area in Barcelona, Spain.
Another door that opens out, onto Radcliffe Camera building, in Oxford, England.
Door leading to a typical Andalusian patio in Cádiz, Spain.
Door at St Mary Magdalene’s Church in Croome Park, Worcestershire, England.
I don’t recall the place where I took this photo, but the door is beautiful.
This pretty Art-decó door is in Chelsea, London.
Yet another of those rustic English doors. This one, as I recall, was in Montacute.
If you go hiking near Bath, you will see this marvelous entrance.
