I like the blue door best.

Memarie Lane said...

I share your obsession. Doors are such interesting things. They can be welcoming, forbidding, beckoning... I like red doors a lot.

Sra said...

I love the blue one too, for some reason. It's the simplest, but I like it best.

HeyJoe said...

I'm trying to come up with a good knock-knock joke to go with your obsession.

Walking With Scissors said...

Ok, I'm going to France just so I can take stylish and professional photos of my kids posing coolly in front of each of those doors. Or, I can steal them from you and Photoshop my kids in front of them. Muahaha...

penny said...

I can't decide if I like the blue door or the green door best.

Headless Mom said...

I love doors, too. My faves of my own are piics from Charleston, SC. My mom has some great ones from Greece and the So. of France.

I totally thought I was going to see pictures of bacon!!

Tamara said...

Very Cool. Now, if you cropped them a bit more, and set them side by side, they'd make a cool poster!

How is your family? Did they get flooded?

LiteralDan said...

Hey, those are some cool doors-- there are worse obsessions, mon ami.

great pictures. I love the different shapes, colors and styles.

Your Pal Pinki said...

I don't know what it is about doors, but I'm with you. I scrolled through them and ooohed and ahhhed pausing longest on the blue door.

Natalie said...

charlie girl - the blue door is my favorite one too.

memarie lane - i agree. there were so many more i could have taken pictures of! the only red door i saw was on the castle wall.

sra - yep the blue. the best.

heyjoe - and you failed. i can't believe it.

walking with scissors - you totally have my permission to steal my pictures and photoshop your kids in front of them. i don't mind at all! i should send you pictures of us so you can photoshop us in the pictures. i took so many pics of stuff and very few of us!

penny - i liked the blue door, but i think i would have liked the green one if it was perfect in the picture. i wish i had stood right in front of it to take that picture.

headless mom - doors can be such interesting things for sure. so much to look at!

over-thinker - bacon! hahahahahaha. i should have taken pictures of the bacon. the problem with that is that we ate it way too fast for me to remember to get my camera!

tamara - i agree. i am messing with them some. i do wish i had taken them all straight on. i didn't think about it at the time though.

my family was ok...without power for several days, but no damage!

literaldan - thanks! i thought so too!

lynn - i couldn't get enough of them. i lagged behind on all the walking we did because i wanted to take pictures.

pinki - i'm glad you enjoyed them. the blue one is the best. i think i am going to print it and frame it. it moves me for some reason!

Kaknu said...

haha - that's funny. When I was in Spain I had a similar door obsession. They had some cool windows too. ;-)

Natalie said...

#2 - thanks! i'm glad you liked them!

kaknu - i just wish my camera lens had been clean. the doors would look so much clearer...crisper. oh well. thanks for the visit!

Andrea said...

I love doors as well! There are truly some interesting doors in Europe.

I also love seeing a small, discreet doorway near a street. It's crazy to think that a person steps out of their door-onto this thriving street--everyday.

Natalie said...

andrea - i know. it is so interesting to see doors in other countries. doors and streets and windows. pretty much everything about houses interests me.

American in Norway said...

I am also obsessed with doors & take pictures of them whenever we travel... too bad my own door is boring WHITE

Great blog!

Natalie said...

american in norway - i know. my door is wood and metal, but it is inside an apartment and not cool looking at all. oh well. one can always dream!

Elaine A. said...

Oh my gosh, these are wonderful! They would make a great display all framed and placed next to each other on a wall! Love it!

Natalie said...

elaine - thanks! i loved them too. i just might print them and frame them when i get back to the states!
