I’ve been meaning to do a Doors and Windows of Europe post for awhile, and while I am in between vacuuming and cramming more odds and ends into boxes, I thought I’d finish throwing it together.
I took these photos between 2005 and 2011, throughout England, France, Spain, and Italy.
Do you have a favorite door or window from the selection above? Do you find yourself photographing them, as well?
Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity. –Tiziano Terzani, A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East

Thanks Carolann, me too!
I’m utterly obsessed with the intricate designs of all the windows and doors. They’re often overlooked, but I think they’re one of the best parts of the buildings. Your pictures are so so stunning! x
Yes, whenever I see a different type of window or door (like rounded edges), I take a second look. So fascinating and eye-catching!
Love this collection of pics, especially (what I’m guessing is) rain on the first one! Great eye for detail!
Thanks, Crystal- to be honest I’m not sure if that was rain or just that wavy kind of glass, but I do have plenty of pictures of rainy windows, too! 🙂
I love the first one. It takes my breath away.
Also, that blue door is fantastic! I want one! Well we do have a blue door but it’s incomplete.
I’d love to have a door like that, too! We have a nice retro door on our new apartment – wood with three square windows in a vertical row- and now I want other things that match that style 🙂
I tend to take pictures of whole buildings and not just doors and windows. I do love all of them though. The architecture in Europe is really neat!
Architecture is one of my favorite things to photograph in a new place- I can’t wait to return to Europe!
