Being a participant in one two three four weekly photo memes, I have seen many photos of wonderful places and things around the world.

I have marveled at classic as well as modern architectural structures, admired flora and fauna, smiled at the smiling faces of children from different races and so much more.

If there is one thing that I have enjoyed looking at are photos of doors. Yes, doors, like iMom‘s family business.

Doors from Europe are the ones I particularly enjoy looking. These doors have characters, in my opinion.

I noticed that i do not have lots of door photos in my files. I have a few of our front door with a door knob that looks like something made by Schlage, with its Christmas trimmings. I also have a few photos of hubby’s family home, and again like our door, with Christmas trimmings.

So two weeks ago when we went to have our own family field trip with our two homeschooling kids and one non-homeschooling daughter, I decided to take notice of doors. And take photos too.

Here are three photos I want to share:

Thanks for the plug, hehe… I like old doors because they have so much character, parang so rich in history…

Those are lovely doors. I admire doors with beautiful details on them.

Very nice doors! And I agree with Chats, old doors (and old things for that matter) have so much character and rich in history.

Thank you for giving me the link to this post Julie. Those are magnificent doors.I like the detail on the ornate one but also the simplicity of the others is very appealing to me.

Beautiful door pictures, Julie.

I think participating in photo blogs with themes has also made you a keen observer of things around you, including details.
