I have several pictures of many doors and it isn't an easy task to decide which one(s) to post, but let me begin with this wooden one seen at the French Alps. Yes, it was around Xmas time, how did you know??

This door below with hand-painted glass is the way to the kitchen at a small French restaurant near Grenoble. Depending on the intensity of the daylight coming through the right window, the painted glass has special reflections and it looks very, very pretty!


And now a typical entrance in Seville, this is an appartment building (see the doorbell panel to the right) located in the older part of the city. Note the Arabic influence: the tiles and the inner patio which is also sort of the entrance hall. There is usually a large wooden door which opens directly to the street and it is kept open during the day, that's how I got to take this picture.

  21. Mar these are so cool and so different. My fav is the first one. Must be that Alps feeling. I had one like that but since we just finished vacation, that one over. :)

  22. I can't believe that last door is to an apartment building. It definitely has personality, and you can see the Arabic influence.

  23. I commented in the wrong place about the doors! LOL! Ahhh well, I didn't get much sleep last night *(We had a 9 hour power outage starting at about 7pm yesterday...)
    Anyway, I like all of them and especially the stained glass one...I understand your dilemma in choosing....
