I love turquoise and I wonder where these vivid doors lead to and if inside the home the family’s living space is as vibrant and flamboyant as their doors; but then, I also see the lock across the door and it puzzles me. I wonder why someone whose doorway had such architectural character, would make such an effort to keep people out. Perhaps, as the paint peeling off the doors’ bottom, the family’s cheer and welcome has peeled away to worn fatigue and age.

    Interesting point, I hadn’t thought of it until you said it: the contrast between the warm and welcoming color and design versus the implied threat of the locked chain.

      For me it stood out. A beautiful bright door opposed to a lock. Perhaps there’s some irony to it. Or at least
      A kind of paradox. I love coloured doors like these, saved a few on Pinterest now I get them on my feed all the time. But most don’t have this type of lock. Thanks for commenting.

        I love doors, too. Whenever I travel, I come home with photos of lots of interesting doors.
