Lovely old doors indeed, JM, and how beautiful they must have been at one time. Hope you're enjoying a good week!

Oh dear, one more distressed than the other . . .

These doors are perfect for photographing.

sad, yet beautiful.

RedPat said...

I wonder if the building will ever be restored or will it be left to continue decaying?

Karl Demetz said...

Beautiful, I love old doors!

Both beautiful, in their melancholy and moodiness. Amazing detail on both doors, despite decay!

They wouldn't need much to be restored...

The decay in Lisbon is a million times more visually pleasing that the decay here in Coventry. Another stunning photo, JM.

wonderful those old doors! These colors are great, very captivating. I have the impression that this doors leeds to some secret hidden behind it. Fantastic...!

Reminds me that there can be beauty in aging and decay. . .and even neglect. A little comfort as I watch the calendar pages pass. ;-)

Decay? Yes. But the decay cannot deny the past beauty and elegance of these doors.

You are the master of decay!

while i would like to slap a fresh coat of paint on the door, it cannot be denied that it is beautiful in its current state.

FotoMarg said...

Beautiful colours. I wonder what the interior of the building is like.

Randy said...

How utterly gorgeous!

I am convinced I have seen these doors before ... they are so beautiful ... but perhaps it is the fading red bleeding into blue I have seen elsewhere in your blog.

Decaying in sync, very good pictures of a couple of really picturesque doors!

You can tell that these doors would have been splendid at one time JM, the 'bones' of beauty are still there.

Muchas veces lo viejo, también nos llama la atención.
Esas puertas guardan muchas historias:))
