Doors of Italy

Dan’s Thursday Doors

Continuing on with the collection of door photos from my European holidays.

This time we are off to Italy and a look at the final photos of Italian doors.

May as well start in Rome with an impressive solid metal door. The door surround is fabulous

A metal door so large I could get it all in

Wooden with lots of metal studs in Florence. On the chain was red/white safety tape. I edited it out for you viewing pleasure

A wonderful Bologna door. The bottom bit needed a bit of TLC and I hope it got it

Another of my favourite places. The hilltop town of Orvieto not far from Rome. This door has everything going for it.

What an entrance in Genoa!! I would almost call it brutalist style except it is a bit older than the 1950’s

A very ornate entrance and door in Florence

A close up of the carvings on the door

A sense of order

Marsha’s Wednesday Quotes

I am not sure where I am going with this so hang on

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order
John Burroughs

Processional Caterpillars have their own sense of order

Until a mischief maker comes along

Seeing the V shaped order of birds heading off to parts unknown

“The proper order of things is often a mystery to me.”
– Cheshire Cat – Lewis Carroll

Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered.
– Jose Saramago

The changing sky at sunset

Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Sunset

I have been going through my media folder deleting photos that are not so good making room for more as it is getting too full.

I came across this sequence of sunset photos I took many years ago
