Continuing last week’s theme of decrepit blue doors, this battered-looking specimen is to be found on the island of Burano in the Venetian lagoon.
And here are a couple more from Venice that I’ve used in previous posts:

As a special end-of-year treat, this week Norm suggests we recycle a previous post. So here’s a door I used last year for a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge on the theme of Endurance. You can see why.
The hamlet of Bonnefont is just a few miles from here, but with about 30 houses its a sprawling metropolis compared to here at Tranquility Base, which can muster ten permanently occupied and half a dozen holiday homes.

This is the door of the barn that belongs to my neighbour Bernard; it’s about 100 feet from my own front door.
Earlier this year, Bernard replaced the roof of this barn, which was in a very poor condition. As a result we were, for a couple of weeks, inundated by displaced barn spiders about the size of your fist.
Be that as it may, he left the door in its original state. I quite like the sapling growing in front of it, which adds some contrast.

Doors? You want doors? Well, how’s this for a door?
I freely admit that it is quite fortuitous that the shape of this huge doorway is reflected in the arch visible inside – not to mention the sign outside.
This massive set of doors is in a medieval church that’s been converted to an organic food market at Sarlat, in the Dordogne.

There’s more than one way to look at a door, as this image illustrates. This is one of the massive doors of Chartres Cathedral – as seen by a mouse, perhaps.
As a free gift, here’s another door from Chartres, which I used in a recent post on Vertical Lines for Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge.
