Weekly Photo Challenge: Door

This week’s photo challenge was made for me! Yippee! How many hundreds of doors I photographed, I don’t remember. But I can’t get enough of them, wherever I go. Wanted to post some more doors, anyway, so this is a good opportunity to do it. These old doors are again from Kefalonia, Greece. I wish you all a wonderful week-end, not so hot as we have it here (105 F!!)

    • Thank you, Tom. Nowadays it’s not easy to be Greek. We hope very much that Greece will overcome all it’s difficulties and rise like a phoenix from it’s old and beautiful culture. Regards Mitza

    • Danke, liebe Stefanie. Ich möchte auch immer so gerne wissen, was dahinter ist. Frauen sind wohl wirklich neugierig, hehe. Hier ist es heute noch unerträglicher als gestern. Ich sitze hier schwitzend rum und möchte 30 Mal am Tag duschen. Liebe Grüße Mitza

      • Bei uns ist es auch heiß heute…34 Grad. Ich glaube bei euch in Afrika ist’s noch ein bisschen heißer oder? Wir waren am Vormittag wieder im Alpengarten und jetzt gammeln wir zu Hause herum. Bei uns is es erträglich, wir haben uns letztes Jahr ein mobiles Klimagerät gekauft. So können wir uns im Wohnraum normal aufhalten und auch kochen. Eine super Investition. Ich schicke dir kühle Grüsse von meiner Couch 🙂
        Liebe Grüsse
        Stefanie

      • Kennst Du den Film mit Marylin Monroe, wo sie ihre Unterwäsche in den Kühlschrank tut (seven year itch)?? Das möchte ich jetzt auch machen. Liebe Grüße Mitza

    • Thank you, Debi, I know you like some of the colors and patterns. Instead of taking drugs I make door photos, hehe. Some sort of an obsession. Have a wonderful Sunday. We are sweating to death here. Hope it will cool down soon.

    • I still didn’t photograph all doors in all villages in Kefalonia, but when driving through I remarked that every village has different designs and colors. Can’t stop to photograph, hehe

      • 😀 That’s really beautiful! You should really do a book with all the doors of Kefalonia an if the Greeks had a bit of appreciation they could sell your book at some local markets there 🙂 As a tourist i would get it…

      • But you know how they are: My friends always ask me why I photograph these ugly old doors and show me some new plastic ones that they think are much more beautiful. Maybe these doors would be much more appreciated here. But I just wanted to raise a monument for the creativeness of Greek iron smiths. 🙂

      • Exactly, i know…that’s why i said “if” they had any appreciation… It’s funny that i see a huge difference in interest from Austrian people about my photos. I’ve been contacted many times and have been asked if they could repost a photo of mine or feature it. Especially on Instagram, from shopping malls i’ve visited to the Vienna tourist board…you name it… In Greece…nobody ever cared! It’s their loss really, they need to realize that there is no better advertisement from regular people who really care enough about the places they photograph… They should support that.

      • yes, you are completely right, particularly in a country that was the cradle of civilization once one would expect more appreciation for our arts, isn’t it? I don’t have Instagram and facebook etc. So this means that you feel much more understood in Austria.

      • Yes, correct! I miss my friends and family in Greece but i love it here! And i have been given the change to study and get a diploma for free, Graphic Design and Market-communication, which would never happen in Greece! Fingers crossed! I have to go through a preparation and test week in 10 days actually, if it goes well, i’m in 😀

      • I once thought about studying graphic design, too. I studied illustration for 4 years. But it’s really hard to live as an artist. But you are young and not anxious and I hope you will be really lucky with all your plans in the future, Alex, have a wonderful week-end, I keep my fingers crossed for your, 🙂 Mitza

      • 😀 Thank you Mitza! Illustration is also really interesting! I wanted to study marketing cause i think it’s more important to know how to present yourself and your work and also help other artists but since i’ve been given the opportunity to study for free and it’s only a year of very intensive studies that cover graphic design, photography, web design and marketing, i thought it would really help me, not only with my German but i will get a very rounded knowledge that will help me on my personal projects and i’ll be ready to work in a company or so cause the last month of the studies is actually working in a company. Fingers crossed! 😀 Next week i have to go through a test week and then we’ll know for sure…

      • wow, Alexandra, that sounds really great to get such a chance. I’m pretty sure you will make it. You are talented enough. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope one day you will know some more German. 🙂

  1. I love Greece and have been many times…even lived there, teaching English for a while. The most beautiful examples of doors I have seen in an urban setting were in Kraków in southern Poland. Stunning! You work is very beautiful. Good luck with your studies

    • Hi Isobel, thanks for your comment and approval of my work. I’m happy you like Greece, too. And thanks a lot for your hint that Krakow has a lot of beautiful doors. Maybe I come there one day, regards Mitza
