Doors from Around the World

It turns out that over the years I have amassed a sizable photo collection of doors, who knew! The doors are surprisingly very interesting and really reflect the countries in which I took them.

The post would be more aptly titled “anything you walk through”, considering the collection also includes lots of archways and gates. I cobbled this post together after I made the photo series Street Art from Around the World.

Hint – scroll over the photos to see which city and country in which they were taken.

A few favorites –

I love the photo of my friend Hali with her shock of blond hair in front of the dark wooden door in Scotland. I took this photo in Edinburgh just before we decided to summit the very wind-whipped and gorse-covered Arthur’s Seat.

Another favorite is of the French family I nanny for exiting the Hostalet de Vives, a traditional Catalan restaurant on the French-Spanish border. We were all smiles after enjoying a delicious meal of meatballs and green olives in gravy.

Which one is your favorite?

  1. Hi Ashley, I just discovered your site yesterday, and you’ve got a new fan! My favourite is Pere Lachaise. I’ve always been a big fan of wandering around on cemeteries.
    You should visit Amsterdam sometime since you’re close already, great city. But it’s a little too cold now so I’d wait until springtime ;)

    • Thanks! I’m glad you like the doors post, I had a lot of fun making it. I was thinking of going to Holland for the tulip festival this spring, that would be beautiful.

  2. I think doors/entryways give us great insight into the architecture (and by extension culture) of the area. They are usually the first thing you look at on a building, so it sets the tone for the rest of the architecture……or they’re just doors and I’m over analyzing lol

    I really dig the Spanish doorways :)

    • Haha no, I agree! I think it’s funny how when you scroll through the pictures you can immediately tell in which country the photos were taken… each place I’ve been has such a distinctive style of architecture so I think it’s really interesting as well :)

  3. Thanks for sharing the link on my knockers post. I tend to avoid doors that are anything but the door and nearly always closed. I like that you have so much else going on. Also, good call on the arches.
