Doors I: Photo Collection

[Note: When I initially decided to start blogging again, I planned to post three times a week. You know what they say about the best laid plans… So, I’ve decided to post just once per week, on Mondays. I hope you’ll continue visiting for a weekly dose of Inquisitive Wanderlust!]

This is part one of two photo collections focused on doors (for part two, go here). Why dedicate two posts to doors? Well, quite simply, I have spent enough time in Turkey, apparent land of abundant interesting doors, that I decided I have enough door pictures for an entire post of doors from Turkey. Watch for part two in two weeks (I have something special planned for next Monday!).

I love doors. When I see a particularly cool door, I can’t help but wander what lies beyond it. So many times, I’m not able to actually go through it, but I can (and often do) take a photo of it. Here are a few of my favorite doors from my travels:

Kensington Palace, London, UK, Summer 2007
Summer Palace, Beijing, China, Summer 2008
Shanghai, China, Summer 2008
Gyeongbokgung, one of five Joseon Dynasty palaces in Seoul, South Korea, October 2010
Deoksugung, another of the Joseon palaces, Seoul, South Korea, November 2010
Bukchon Hanok Village, a neighborhood of traditional Korean homes in Seoul, South Korea, June 2011
Khor Virap Monastery, near Artashat, Armenia and the Turkish border, November 2011
Haghpat Monastery, Haghpat, Armenia, November 2011
Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem, West Bank, February 2012 (In this photo, you can see how the doorway has been made smaller over time. Do you see the three doorways?)
Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, Israel, February 2012
