And just as well given my preoccupation with taking "portal photos" while travelling.
|Forbidden City, Beijing|
Open or closed. Ornate or plain. It seems I don't really care.
|Hoi An, Vietnam|
|Grand doors to a grand ceiling in Denmark|
|Window with bonus flower box in Finland|
|No door or window, but a wall in Riga, Latvia|
With their plethora of ornate windows and doors, certain buildings, like churches, temples, castles and halls, are a bit of a mecca for me. Though I'm also a sucker for a good window flower box it seems.
Doors and windows surrounded by snow, forest or desert, I don't mind. Just make sure there's no one standing in front of it or coming through it. I don't need them crowding up the shot.
|Snow-covered temple in Nozawa Onsen, Japan|
Looking back, I seem to have really hit my stride in Spain. Either there were a lot of decorative portals in this country or I had a lot of sangria... or both.
|Window blackboard in Finland|
|Castle window with a view in Estonia|
|The Circus, Bath|
I do wonder what I thought I was going to do with all this "portal porn"? Perhaps I thought one day I would try and recreate some of these in my little Brisbane unit? Just not sure how the body corporate might feel about medieval stained glass windows or oak doors.
