What is it about doors that is so intriguing? As I look through my photos there are hundreds of images of doors, and I wonder at my attraction to them.
Sometimes doors are one of the things that identify places I have been. You may recognize this one as having the color of Provence.
Washed blues and greens are used throughout for doors and shutters and over time become faded and chipped. In recent years those same tones have been popularized in the decorating world as they are often seen in French Country and Farmhouse style.
Color always catches my eye as it did in the seaside city Essaouira in Morocco. Here bold blue doors appeared to mesh with the vibrancy of surrounding sea and sky.
Not only was the color appealing, I liked how it combined with mosaics handmade in the area to become part of an artistic statement.
If doors told a story, so did the small fishing boats, every one painted blue. I would love to know if blue had more meaning than just being a color.
Over time I plan to share more images of doors as I reflect on what drew me to them. As part of the journey I will join Thursday Doors with others who are drawn to them.
