I have rarely taken photos of Door Knobs and Handles, so this is inspiration to pay more attention to little things as well in future… I’m learning. But I do have some shots of doors-of-interest, interest to me i.e., so it’s time for some fun & sharing.
We visited a friend in Baltimore and I just loved her door. To me, it had that slight hint of English to it, but not quite. She did think of putting on a knocker but didn’t dare think of a mail-slot.
A door to a typical moderately rich Peranakan family house in Southeast Asia. Door patterns and banners are usually with old Chinese touch but these door knockers (without dragon-heads) and the terracotta floor tiles are touches of British influence in their culture. (I am Peranakan & can relate to this scene.)
This is called a Moon Gate (月门) and it usually leads to a garden ~ where you can see the moon. It connects the inside to the outside & celebrates the continuity of the cycle of life.
A “DIY” back door to a village residence in Malaysia.
And the final shot is of my bedroom’s “Made in the Garage” Shoji doors, using thick Japanese rice paper. 😀
