If It's Wednesday...it must be doors

Rather than the wooden doors we've seen before, here is an equally beautiful wrought iron doorway. The craftsmanship is still there and the sheer size is overwhelming.

The walls are scarred by graffiti and age, the door had a box attached to it in which advertisements can be dropped into rather than in mailboxes inside. Most doors are now locked and one enters by key or electric code. This door has a panel on the left (see red lettering)

What is there to do? Aim, shoot, enjoy :) It is Wednesday already - we can do this!

It would look wonderful with a little TLC, don't you think? Is this a residential building?

Hello Isadora !
Very very beautiful. Great work ! It is a pity about the box. It alter a little this magnificent masterpiece.

The wrought iron has an intricacy that is a nice contrast to the more geometrical lines in the door surround.

I like the reflection of the sky mirrored on one of the doors. I enjoy photographing doors, too.
