Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #204: Doors

Since last Thursday, Hubby and I have been in Washington’s Bavarian Village of Leavenworth for the International Accordion Celebration.  The town, and just about every building is decorated with scenes Bavarian, inside and out.  We stayed at a different hotel this time, and it has a plethora of decorated doors.  Starting with the entrance door.


When you walk inside, and go up the elevator to your room, you are presented with highly-decorated doors.


The door has four different scenes of Germany.

When we got off at our floor four, we were not really surprised to see the two elevator doors.

Someone went to a lot of effort to paint those doors!  Then, as you walk down the halls, you see more than one cleverly-concealed doors.  Sometimes, you have to look closely to see that the electrical-panel doors are disguised.  Remember the old joke, “When is a door not a door?  When it is ajar”?  This one could be “When is a door not a door?  When it is a picture”.

We really got our exercise over the weekend, walking everywhere in town, to performances, competitions, restaurants, and workshops.  This door is in the building next to the hotel, which houses a pizza restaurant on the street level, and offices above.


Nice reflection in the glass panel, too!  Downtown on the main shopping street, I saw a totally unmarked door, and wondered what might be behind it.


And on another street is another hotel entrance.  The door itself is nothing special, but the sign above it is.

The door in Safed just has to make you smile.

Armenian Quarter

And this gateway to the Armenian Quarter in Jerusalem is quite enticing.

This is the door to Peterhouse College, Cambridge. It’s the oldest College, started by the Bishop of Ely in 1284.

That door is also enticing, making you wonder what is behind it.

Here’s the Link to this week’s Original Post.
