Travel Theme : Doors

I love oriental doors they are so colourful, especially the ones into the temples.

These are samples of Korean temple doors.

When they are open you can see Buddha, serene and golden.

The doors in Thailand are covered in gold and more ornate than the Korean ones.

In the back streets of Bangkok this craftsman was proud to show us this door created for the English football club Chelsea.

He’d also made doors for Arsenal and Liverpool.

Doors are endlessly interesting, wondering about the stories and lives that have unfolded behind them.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things,

because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

  1. Love the Korean door. Closest I have come to that beautiful art-work was on a Pavilion from Korea which stands in VanDusen Garden, Vancouver. https://smallbluegreenwords.wordpress.com/2013/06/24/vancouver-art-history-and-nature/#jp-carousel-1580

    I forget that you have travelled extensively, so used to seeing and enjoying your Australian travels. Who were the football doors for? The clubs themselves, or for fans in Thailand?

    • It is very unique designs and colours. Thank goodness I travelled extensively during the 1980’s and 90’s, I think it may have been easier travelling back then and of course it is always easier when you are younger… The doors where being sent back to UK for the clubs

      • The 80s and 90s were when I did my least travelling, busy raising 4 children on my own and I had no time and even less money! But the last 15 years have been very good so no complaints from me. There will be many places that I won’t get to now, but at least it is much easier to travel in a virtual world than it was then!

  2. Reblogged this on The Legion of Door Whores and commented:

    • Thank you for the reblog Yvette it is an honour that you have shared these images
