Old doors IX – Kefalonia / Greece

I still have so many old Greek doors and gates to show you. On some of the houses you will see a sprayed cross or triangle in different colors. This was made by civil engineers after the last earthquake to state if a house was still habitable or not.

    • thanks for your comment and approval. A door is something very individual I think. It says a lot about the owner and gives our fantasy the opportunity to think about who’s living there and how. Have a wonderful day, regards Mitza

  1. Symbolically, the door stands for opportunities missed and for opportunities taken. also when one door closes, another opens etc. These are the thoughts that cross my mind, when I look at the wonderful photos in your post, Mitza.

    • thanks a lot, Peter, it’s really interesting what kind of thoughts people have about doors. Your thoughts are very good and new. Somehow I think in a fairy tale a door was the entrance to a secret because sometimes it was forbidden to open it and it had a symbolic meaning like all fairy tales. Have a nice day in Canada, here it’s very cold, -7 and snows. Mitza

  2. Lovely collage Mitza! I can’t get enough of those blue doors, I believe they are the prettiest in the world, nowhere else can you find “that” kinda blue.
    Very interesting info about the spraying on the houses after the earthquake, I can see it on some of the shots!
    Very intricate lovely iron work on some and very simple on others, I would
    guess that has to do something with the status-quo. Behind those doors are always stories of lives, wouldn’t be nice if we could find out? Take a peek πŸ™‚
    Hope you having a good week Mitza! Hugs~eva

    • Thank you again, dear Eva, for your always wonderful and heartfelt words, which I appreciate a lot. A door can say a lot about the owner of the house, I think. Doors are so fascinating because we always ponder what might be behind them.
      Hope you have a good week, too, dear Eva, virtual hugs, Mitza

  3. It is wonderful to see how many people have enjoyed your post about doors! And I love them too Mitza. I can not explain why, but the ones I like best are the ones with peeling paint, or with corroded metal. These, to me have heart and soul and I can respond to them as if they carry beauty and a certain kind of poetry. They certainly speak to me πŸ˜€

    • Thanks a lot, dear Karen, for your wonderful comment. I completely agree with you, the more decayed the better. Wish people would think about women like that, hehe.

      • There should have been several pages with the Birthstones attachment….hope they all came. I am cooking my carrot harvest today, so the house smells of spices and coconut milk as I make soups and purees. Nice work for a Sunday. I hope you are warm and well. Josef loves his Mitza kisses and I send you a hug too. Karen πŸ™‚

      • No, sorry, I only got one photo with a necklace. This carrot harvest day sounds really delicious. I love carrots. Do you like pumpkin soup, too? I always use Hokkaido pumpkin with some carrots and potatos, ginger, a little honey and some soya cream. It’s very delicious. Hugs to both of you, Mitza

      • No snow here now Mitza. It is raining, again. I try not to conform to the stereotype of the English person who only talks about the weather. It is just that it is usually so rainy here 😦

      • I know, England is known for rain, but Hamburg is the most British town in Germany – and guess what – it rains a lot, too. Today it was very dark so I couldn’t do any photos. I looked for the balls but couldn’t f ind them yet. Maybe I send you photos from the earrings I have made already. How do you like grey or white pearls? May the sun be in your heart, πŸ™‚ Mitza
