Thursday Doors – 11/07/2019

We were in New York recently and, among other things, we spent an afternoon visiting Columbia University, where my husband’s nephew and his wife are studying. And, (surprise!) I found some pretty special doors around campus…

It should be expected that the most beautiful building in New York City, an Art Deco masterpiece, would also have beautiful doors. Since we were in NYC last week, I made sure I’d check that, and I wasn’t disappointed. A short visit to the lobby of the Chrysler Building confirmed that it has indeed some very interesting doors. Sometimes it’s more about what’s around the doors than the doors themselves. This post includes shots of all the doors from around the lobby and main entrances, as well as some shots of the ceilings, walls, and other areas of the lobby.

Doors of Süleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul

The Süleymaniye Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the Third Hill of Istanbul, Turkey. It is the second largest mosque in the city and its largest Ottoman-era mosque. It is a beautiful building. An architectural wonder. And it has some very pretty doors. We visited it on a very cold and grey day so the external shots don’t do justice to it.

Doors of Pláka ~~

“Pláka is the old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the “Neighborhood of the Gods” due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.”  We stayed at a hotel in Pláka, which was the best decision we’ve ever made. Location, location, location! This post shows doors from the old part of Pláka. It was fun walking around the narrow streets looking for doors. And I found many! There will be more doors from Pláka in future posts.

Lens-Artists Challenge: Angles

I always look for different Angles when shooting interesting subjects. I also happen to love photographing stairs. So here is a combination of angles and stairs.

In response to Lens-Artist’s Ann-Christine, who challenged us to photograph something from different angles. Photos taken at the Tate Britain, in London.

Doors from a small town in Northeast Brazil. We spent the month of July in Brazil and one of the things we did was to participate in a reunion of my husband’s family, on his father’s side. Among other things, we visited the small town of Campo Maior, where his family came from.
