I love tracking down unique and unusual doors, so it was fun to pick out some of my favorites for this week’s post. Many of these doors were spotted in Florence. The red door is the exception. If you’d like to get a closer look, just click on the image to enlarge it.
A Horse at the Door.
I love how you can see the places where many hands have rubbed off the brass patina on this wonderful door knob. It’s such a creative way to welcome visitors and a useful way to open the door.
A Doctor…at the Door
On a walk a few weeks ago, I spotted this door in Santa Croce, decorated for a graduation celebration declared with so much pride. If you look closely, you can see a red sign on the door which says “Dottore” and another that says “My Graduate.”
A Heavenly Door
Although I’ve posted this photo of these massive church doors before, I couldn’t resist including them in this post. They truly dwarf all who enter.
A Quirky Door
On a walk in Massachusetts, I spotted this very quirky doorway flanked by two mannequins and topped with two horseshoes for good luck. You can also see two old TV sets in the garden and a statue of a child on a pedestal. Unique? Weird?….What do you think?
A Cow at the Door
As we were walking down a narrow street in Santa Croce, I did a double-take when I saw this doorway with a cow staring at me. It’s a wonderful optical illusion, don’t you think?
A special thanks to Sylvia Bacon for hosting LAPC #204 this week. I hope you join us and share your discoveries near and far. Be sure to link to Sylvia’s post and include the Lens-Artists tag.
A salute to Anne Sandler who hosted the Local Vistas challenge last week. I enjoyed the glimpse of your local area or special places you’ve visited nearby. Next week, it’s Tina’s turn to host LAPC #205, so be sure to visit her Travels and Trifles site to join us next Saturday at noon.
Until then, stay safe, stay well. Wishing you plenty of inspiration, too.
