Doors and doorways

I love taking photos of doors and windows. The right kind of door can add character to a house, mosque or temple and may even make you want to go inside and explore. Here are some of my favourites.
 This door in the grounds of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia had some
lovely metalwork depicting what appeared to be a deity sitting on top of lotus flowers.
 Still in Cambodia, this time in one of Angkor’s temples. I had entered a doorway
and was about to leave when I saw this boy sitting outside, just watching me.
This lovely door was in an art shop in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
This was in Alcatraz prison, in San Francisco Bay.
I wish I knew what or who they once kept in the vault.
I love New Orleans, ’nuff said
 Rusty metalwork and peeling paint complement this door at an old mosque in Ayutthaya, Thailand
I discovered this lovely sea-green door in a quiet alley in an old section of Kuala Lumpur.
Wish I knew what the words meant.
