It all started during my trip to Japan in 2012 when every surface of every structure was decorated with a classic Japanese flair, even the doors. I found myself taking photos of the doors and loved the pictures when I returned home.
Slowly, a travel trend started. With each trip I returned with more pictures of doors. Now I go out of my way to snap a photo of a beautiful or strange door, sometimes crossing the street or backtracking from a cab ride just for a photo of one that catches my eye.
As you can imagine, Spain and France provided unlimited amounts of doors and doorways that I adored. For my final post on my trip, here are some of my favorite doors of Spain and France.
Madrid & Toledo:
Paris & Champagne:
I’m not sure what it is I find so intriguing about doors. Maybe it’s their concept: what is behind them? Where do they lead? Who could be beyond them and what possibilities could happen when they open?
That may be a little abstract and perhaps far-fetched, but you can’t deny that some of these doors truly are beautiful.
