A Beauty!


There are just so many doors here in Prague that I have lots of material for my files, so showing you a new door each day is not the problem; the problem is deciding WHICH door to show you!! I like to keep things as interesting as possible, therefore, I don't want to just show you beauties like this, but also sad doors and big doors and so on. I think they are all interesting, but I won't show you a door that doesn't 'feel' interesting to me...that would just be boring and dishonest. Maybe you would like to see doors like this everyday, but I think for the most part you will agree with me that by seeing some of the less interesting doors, it makes the more interesting doors even MORE interesting. Enjoy!!

Isn't that little open window above the door great? Notice it's very unusual shape...I love things like this!! And those little faces in the frame...they are not identical, which makes me wonder if they were made based on real-life people (or children as in this case). This frame is light and happy, yet solid and rich without being too much. I do like it a lot! The door, the frame and the various elements all work so well together here. OK, so the door handle isn't extraordinary, but the metal work all over the door and the area above the door makes up for it ten-fold as does the door's unusual shape...you HAVE to love that!!

the little unusual window on the top immediately attracted my eyes!but the whole door is so fabulous! I already told it, but write a book!! A simple tourist won't have time to discover all of them, and the Prague 's habitants will have pleasure to re-discover their town.

It is a beauty!

It's overall appearance reminds me of yesterday's door and what it might have looked like in better days!
