Doors (and doorways) from around the world-a photo essay

While a door (or doorway) may seem fairly nondescript or is something one doesn’t give a lot of thought to, what about when it’s a door in another country? What about if it’s a doorway that’s almost 1,000 years old and has had royalty pass through it at one time? What if it’s a door whose detail is more striking than the architecture found on a church? Or what if it’s a doorway that’s not a doorway in the traditional sense because the architect wanted it that way?

I give you doors and some doorways too…
Unhyeongung Palace-Seoul, South Korea
Tangier, Morocco
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater-Pennsylvania

A private home overlooking Merrion Square-Dublin, Ireland
Igreja do Carmo-Lisbon, Portugal

    I too LOVE photographing doors (and windows) during my travels! It’s fun to see how different and varied the architectural styles and colors can be, sometimes even within the same country!

    Windows would make a great topic too, never thought of that! And yes you’re absolutely right on how varied styles and colors can be not only from country to country but city to city especially where there are multiethnic groups all living together.
