An Old Red Door in Lisbon.

It’s been while since I posted on Norm’s Thursday Doors.

Its not that I haven’t been photographing doors; far from it!  On my trips this year I’ve come back with hundreds of pictures to delight the door-lover in me.  I should have stockpiled enough to last me through winter when it comes.  I always like (NEED) to have lots of door pictures in reserve. How bereft I would feel if I ran out of them.

This week’s pictures were taken on a recent trip to the Southern European city of Lisbon.

At the top of this street I found an old red door:

In Lisbon, almost every door is worthy of photographing. Whilst there is nothing unusual about this one, it is as unique as every other door is in the old city.

The door furniture also isn’t out of the ordinary, though at the same time it is extraordinary…….

……..and worth a closer look:

And an even closer look at the keyhole:

Let’s get even closer to examine the spyhole.

If you look carefully you can see the little round spy hole behind the external grill:

I should have taken a picture of the modern black plastic doorbell with the white bell-push on the right-hand side of this decayed yet still majestic door, but I’ve only just noticed it.

Here’s thought for the day:

It seems to me that the world can be divided into two groups: the first group comprising those who love doors for their character, their personality, their mystery, their history, the stories they could and do tell………

………..the second group are those poor souls who just don’t get it!   Let’s hope that they inadvertently stumble across Norm’s Thursday Doors sometime soon and find out what they have been missing.

 

Thanks for visiting PHOTOPHILE.
