'Doors' is a suggestion by BurgGurl.

This one's self-explanatory. We visited this cidery in Bridgetown, Western Australia, about a year ago.

I've got many photos of doors, ancient and modern, from around the world, but thought this is one of the most amusing.
Taken in Cherbourg, France, earlier this year - but can you spot the actual door

Here's one of the country's best art deco buildings, the entrance to High Point in Highgate

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.

Bricked up doors in the converted Benedictine Priory, which are now separate properties.



Here is a view from the rear of the building showing doors in use today.

I love all the unique doors and doorways. At Fort Point at the base of the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco.

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.

That is my kind of door SMW! I want one just like it!

And McShellsie, that blue contrasting with the brickwork is a great standout - wonderful find there.

This door is the entrance to a tabacco leaf smoking shed.

Sounds like another way to say: "The Smoking Section!" - Every restaurant/bar here in New York is smoke-free and Pennsylvania and West Virginia are slowing becoming the same way.

Great shot there BHS!

This funny little entranceway is on the same building that has a school bus on its roof, that I have shown in past photos.
