Doors Around The World

Pick your toilet style. India.

Doors are a cool subject to photograph around the world. I don’t make it a point to do so, but I found a few that I took across my travels. The photo above is one of my favorite pictures. I like it’s simplicity but it tells a story, a story of culture, and I love the colors too.

Doors can tell a lot about the place that they lead to or they can be complete mysterious. Doors are often used metaphorically in writing and in speech to get through life.

  6. 🙂 Some interesting doors you’ve put together! The submarine’s door is kind of frightening – closes very tight…and if not…
    I have added doors of a vintage car to the wpc’s page.
    HAPPY weekend! 🙂
