I fell for doors, too.

Montpellier, France.

I guess all of those Thursday posts got to me. I had begun to notice doors around me more and more, seeing how some are just pretty, how others seem to carry a story, or more precisely guard it, maybe. Then, the trip to this Southern town happened and I just couldn’t ignore how many amazing entrances (or closures, depends on how you want to look at them) it had. Some were those typical French half-broken ones that were offering a peek to a cold dark hallway and its mailboxes, so real life looking and belonging to the neighbourhood I couldn’t get myself to take a photo of them, being sure someone was about to come out every second now. Others were more solid and sturdy, more colourful, too. I didn’t even document a third of all of those I admired. I think my best friend had quite a good laugh about my new obsession, yet eventually she was the one saying : ”Look at these!” Making sure, of course, I don’t neglect any. Why not throw in some windows, too! And my favourite, although I’m not sure why, that little door, just the height of my friend, shoved in a corner, surely leading to a cellar…

  1. Ahh, marvellous. I’m so glad the love of doors has rubbed off and that you’ve waiting till Thursday. Isn’t it interesting to follow them around? πŸ™‚ I love your selection, especially the second one.

    I see that you’ve added your link to Norm’s blue frog, but it doesn’t work. You add the full URL of your post in the first square, the name of your blog in the second, and your email (which will not be shown) in the third.


    1. It is! πŸ˜€ Thanks, they are quite majestic hehe πŸ™‚
      Thanks, I did that, too. Just wanted to be sure the idea at the source of it is also shared for those who may not know it yet.

  2. Very interesting beautiful doors! I know what you mean about passing your interest in doors on to your friend. My husband has picked up my interest too. When we are out and about, he’s often drawing my attention to an interesting door. =)
