I have a fascination with doors. I was not aware of this fascination until living in the Spanish colonial town of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Walking the cobblestone streets of this beautiful town I found myself constantly confronted with one colorful or unique door after another. It seems evident from the number of hits in Google Photos. Flickr, and Amazon Prime that doors are a popular subject. Search “mysterious door” or “secret door” and thousands of results pop up. What is it about doors that is so compelling?
The pineapple is a symbol of "welcome" which is why it often embellishes doors. Aren't these doors in San Miguel beautiful and unique?
For those of you who cannot wait, here is the link to my photo album:
THE DOORS OF MEXICO AND BEYOND
Consequently, for a little variety from my normal blog postings, I have decided to make this post all about the visual pleasure of some of my favorite doors. At the bottom of this page you will also find a link to my photograph album with many, many additional doors just in case you become fascinated (obsessed?) with doors like me. Enjoy my world of doors. I hope this might be an opening of a new door for you and yours!
