Lens Artists Photo Challenge #103 – Surprise

While exploring the walls of the medieval city of San Gimignano, we discovered this fascinating door, a lovely surprise.  While it appeared to give a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside, I suspect it may actually have been a portal to another world.  It just had that feeling. 🙂

What do you think is on the other side?

You can find more surprises at the original Lens-Artist challenge.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual


From Galway.

Ireland has the best doors.  Galway has many interesting historical sites, as well as a bustling city center, but I was more taken with this lovely line of doorways on R336 close to the harbor.  I have never seen such a complementary rainbow of doors, and the unusual sight has made this one of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

From Dublin, Ireland.

This face greeted us at the door of our hotel in Dublin, Stauntons on the Green.  It’s located in a Georgian townhouse with gardens in the back.  I felt like I was staying in a novel!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony


From Dublin.

I loved the architecture in Dublin!  A lot of it is Georgian in style, and often colorful as well.  I loved the juxtaposition of these two doorways, harmonizing together with their similarities and slight contrast.
