Every Door Tells a Story: Part 2

My obsession with Mexican doors continues to grow, and spending time between Oaxaca and Mexico City I have managed to generate a whole new library of photos. Colour contrasts, peeling, warping wood, tiny brass details and elaborate door knockers, I love it all. I adore the stories that whisper in my mind when I find a beautiful old door, the stories that are yet to be told.

Take a look at the latest pics and maybe pause for a moment to think about what tales they may have to tell…

  1. I love the door photos. In Mexico there is no shortage of material when it comes to old doors and buildings. Such character only comes with age.
