Indian Doors

I find doors interesting. The door to a home marks a border; a dividing line between outside and inside; between “ours” and “theirs.” Old doors that have seen a lot of history have a character all of their own. They can say a lot about the sort of people who have lived there.
When I was in Rajasthan, India earlier this year I photographed a lot of doors. Here is a selection of them.

And of course, with a door there is always the possibility of a glimpse inside.

In another post soon I will show you some doors from China.

    • Most of these photos were taken in a wonderful town that had once been very wealthy but later fell on hard times. Everything about the buildings was very beautiful but with an air of neglect and decay.
