More doors from Europe, but not anything like I have been posting over the past few Thursdays.
One of my visits to Europe I took a lot of photos of Police vehicles. My nephew is in the NSW Police Service and at the time, he just commenced driving for the Highway Patrol.
I thought I would get him a selection of Police vehicles when I found them in my travels.
They went from small and cute in Barcelona
Still cute in Vienna
Yes they do have Police cars in Venice
These blokes looked quite serious when driving in Rome
Not sure what was happening in Nice
There must have been something happening as the police were away from their car in Split, Croatia
The Slovenian Police car is quite snazzy
Now they are getting serious in Rome. When the door is open it says CAR on the side
When the Police van pulled into the square in Pisa I wondered what was happening so I avoided the Leaning Tower and went straight to the nearest and quietest pizzeria. Yes another quest success, to have a pizza in Pisa
Another Police van this time parked in Vienna
I should finish on cute again with Police boat patrolling the canals of Venice
Another trip to Italy. This time to Bologna, a wonderful city. The best place to eat was just down the road, Trattoria Il Vaporino. They looked after us and the food was fabulous. Good fuel for door hunting
Wood, studs and stone, what could be better
A grand entrance
The carving around the door frame. You can see which door gets most use
The doors of Italy. I must have some Italian blood as I just love going there every time I head to Europe. Let’s begin in Genoa with a very impressive doorway and a door that is dwarfed by the surrounding doorway.
A heraldic shield and impressive entrance in Verona
The wooden door from Milan with studs, brick arch and moulding
A while ago, I went to an open house for a house for sale. It was a very old place over one hundred years old and not been lived in for a few years. It was an amazing house with lots of rooms and a huge plot of land. I enjoyed a walk around in time. You can see by the paint work on these door that they haven’t been maintained in quite some time. I loved their patina.
