A Solid Beauty



For your upcoming weekend* I offer you the above rose and the beautiful door it has 'grown' on.


This lovely door (and entry) has a quiet beauty that gives a heart strength...well, perhaps I'm speaking for myself here, but I find that when I look at this door I feel not only peace, but calm. Can a door really do that? Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think.


*The first photo is my contribution to 'Weekend Reflections', a meme by James of Newtown Area Photo. For more information please see here.

Hiya,
What a scrumptious door.
And finally, we are allowed a peep inside, even though not into the inner sanctum.
Such a dignified entrance.

This door is absolutely beautiful; I love the detail, especially the roses. Very welcoming...great reflections too :)
Hope your weekend is delightful.

Elegance and "classe", are the words coming to my mind.. I like the offered rose in the first picture!

This was not "an everyday door", but one with style and class.

Such an elegant entrance...makes me wonder about the inside. I'm sure it must be equally lovely, in keeping with its dramatic door.

Le détail est parfait : reflet et délicatesse !

Some doors are really incredible... I like the mix between glass métal and wood on this one : the result is so harmonious...

Oh so beautiful. I wish I had photographed more doors when I was in Prague, a long time ago. Have a wonderful weekend.

What an elegantly delicate door. I love your title picture, too! This is a great idea for a blog-- I love pictures of doors, but never would have thought of devoting a blog completely to them. Good for you-- these doors are worthy of a blog of their own!

These doors are just beautiful and I love the architecture combined with the softness of a single flower. Beautifully captured.
