I just adore doors and I’ve photographed quite a few on my travels. There was this rather nautical doorway in the tiny fishing village of Kilmore Quay.
This door had a distinctly frontier feel to it in the wild west town of Winthrop.
Quite possibly my favourite doorway ever, up on the Aventine in Rome, mainly because of that tiny keyhole with a big, big view of three different nations.
A doorway in the ruins of the Casa Santa Domingo monastery in Antigua, Guatemala, called the Bride’s Door – because only brides-to-be enter the chapel this way, on their wedding day.
