Doors of the World!!

doorway in Barcelona, Sarria neighborhood

So I found out via Pigtown that a lot of the blogging community is doing a 'doors of the world' post today and thought I'd share a few of my finds!

Palacio de Velazquez in Madrid - 3 doors -which one to go into???

3 doorways from the Palaccio Reale in Naples, Italy - love the pompeian door!
doorway of a beautiful temple in Portland, Oregon

cute shutters on the doors of Grey Towers, Milford, PA
Infamous Mussolini front entry in Naples, Italy - notice that it opens out onto a busy intersection -watch that first step!!

3 doorways found in the Casa Batllo in Barcelona

That door at Palaccio Reale is absolutely beautiful! You should lead architecture tours on the side :)

That palace is really beautiful - photographs weren't allowed so I tried to be sneaky and get a few photos! That would really be my dream job if I spoke any langauges well enough to communicate in easily other than English!

That first door is great! Glad you participated... there have been some amazing pictures.

It was such an interesting concept I had to participate, Pigtown! I also realized how pitiful my 'doorway' resources are! Something to work on!

Architect's must dream of doors like these. Amazing!

I loved that first door when I came upon it, PVE. Thats probably the only truly amazing 'door' picture I have that I can find. The mussolini doorway is just historically significant
