Thursday Doors : 18 May

We have just been on a short trip to the sunshine in southern Spain, the Costa del Sol, and here are a few of the doors we came across.  Most doors that we saw were very ornate, and a lot of them had these wrought iron doors outside the wooden doors, which means the building can be cooler in summer with the wooden door open.

Or how about these ones?

Head on over to Norm’s for more

 

 

Tuesdays of Texture : Week 19 of 2016

Budapest

Ornate buildings in Budapest

This week I am combining two challenges – Narami’s Tuesdays of Texture and Norm’s Thursday Doors, as I have some wonderful doors and buildings from Budapest.   Not only are the doors full of interesting textures and decorations, but so are the statues and carvings around the doors.

Here are a few more:

Cathedral at Santiago de Compostela

This very intricate door is one we saw at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London recently.   It is a replica of the entrance to the Cathedral of St James, at Santiago de Compostela, very well known to anyone who has walked the Camino in Spain, and below is some more detail of the door.

Ornate doors in a welcoming red

Red is a  colour that always stands out, especially on a door, it says to me ‘Welcome, come on in’   What do you think?

Knock Knock Who’s There?

I love finding new and interesting doorways and hallways, they always make me want to see what’s on the other side, like these treasures I found recently in Spain and Gibraltar.   The Spanish people are very proud of their ornate doors, and their craftmanship is also very evident in the tiling and carvings seen everywhere.  You only have to visit someplace like Barcelona  to marvel at the works of the very talented architects of the past.     Have a look at this post by restlessjo for some fabulous examples of Gaudi work.
