Let’s Hear It For the Greys!
More doors from the old Plaka neighborhood in Athens.
Red is my favorite color. Wherever I am with my camera, I’m looking for that pop of red. Here are some from various trips.

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.
A week or so ago I went out to photograph the Jacaranda trees that were in full bloom here is Los Angeles. Instead of going to the beautiful streets of Beverly Hills, where photographers are not always welcomed, I chose a quiet little street in West LA, lined up with Jacarandas on both sides. Much to my surprise, the jacarandas were not the only attraction there. Every house had a colorful, interesting door, even the most modest ones. So that tuned into a door photo shoot too.
