The Doors - Just Beachy

David McMahon of Authorblog captures some great shots - some of my favorites are those in his The Doors Series

I've always had a thing for doors. There used to be an awesome double door on a home nearby, but the local hospital had it demolished so they could expand. I've always regretted not getting my hands on them during the salvage - they would've made a perfect table or headboard. I hope to see another set like them someday, and you can be sure I will at least snap a pic if I don't drag them home with me.

Here are some door shots I took while on vacation. The first, I snapped because of the interesting trees framing the entrance.

The second was too cool to pass up - a stained glass gate? Only in California.

And this one I loved for the lines.

Those are great pictures! I love pretty doors, too...especially when they're painted in happy colors! :)

I have always wanted to have a cute little brick house, with a bright red door.

Literally came here five seconds after I saw your comment!

These are great doors - exactly what would have attracted my attention too. The framing of the first one through the trees is wonderful.

Thanks for the great shout-out too.

I hope you find a door (or more) to post each week!

I love your doors.

Doors and windows, babies and flowers - my photo albums - when I kept photo albums - are full of those.

I love doors too. And gates and interesting windows with shutters. Maybe because they feel like portals to adventure and mystery.

Congratulations on your POTD nod over at Authorblog.
