A great choice of subject for me! This is not strictly a door, but a doorway. The entrance to one of the temples near my home. The smoky atmosphere is due to the joss stick(cone shapes) burning activities in there.

This is another favorite photo subject for me, so many interesting doorways out there! It was difficult to choose the 'best' one so I picked one from inside a private home. This one is a customized entryway and transom from the home of some dear friends in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium. The man who lives in this home originally planned on commissioning someone else to design and install a unique doorway to his house but found it to be less expensive if he did it himself. He purchased his own materials and taught himself to build it!

Kudos to all of you. These are fantastic. Maybe because I have always been very observant of and fascinated by doors. They prompt my curiosity about the lives of the people that pass, or used to pass in some cases, through them. BurgGurl, your friend did a splendid job on his! Looking at picqero's and then lilyalli's and ren's - I'd say those people led very opposite lives.
