The Doors..

“There are things known, and there are things unknown, And in between are the Doors”      


           - Jim Morrison

And if those doors were to open out into the streets of Paris, I would certainly want to explore the unknown that lies beyond them!

Last night, while flipping through the album of our trip to Paris, in october....I made a rather peculiar discovery about myself. It appears...I might have some kind of a door-fetish......I had taken over two dozen images of doors!!

The ones I have featured here are from a limited color palatte (though all in different hues) and have brass and / or wrought iron hardware. The designs vary from basic to elaborate but the common element is ofcourse the absolute gorgeousness of them all.There ought to be a coffee-table book on the doors of Paris.... maybe there is one!

There is no commentary or caption accompanying  these images, as the doors speak for themselves!! Let us check them all out...starting with this very elegant blue-grey door...

...and ending where it probably all front of the majestic Last Judgement Portal of the Notre Dame Cathedral..

Which ones did you like best...leave me a comment and let me know !!
