Doors



I have taken a lot of photographs of doors, this one is in Assisi. Doors are security, we all live behind a door closed to the rest of the world, each others personal spaces only available by invitation. All our journeys in life involve doors, leaving the safety of our own home and moving to another place where the door may be open, closed, imposing, impressive or banal.

This door is much smaller than the wonderfully ornate doorway it inhabits, perhaps it was once a coachhouse door, it obviously had some significance, whoever lived here wished to impose themselves upon visitors and publicly demonstrate their own importance.
