Sepia Saturday: The Doorways of Travel

This week’s Sepia Saturday 203 features doorways, especially with people standing in them.

I haven’t trawled my personal/family photos for a suitable one and chose instead to focus on some recent travel photos which “fit the bill”. All were taken in Zanzibar, famous for its amazingly carved doors.

Many Zanzibar doors have small doors built within the larger door.

And then there's the colonial influence in the attire of this hotel's doorman.

I love a semi-closed doorway -always makes me wonder what's behind it.

  1. I love that ‘door within a door’. i remember there is one of those at the Tower of London, so the guard doesn’t have to bother opening up the big gates and can just slip out without much trouble

  2. A wonderful collection of doors, and you are right, they all make me want to see what is behind them. I have never visited Zanzibar, but my son was there last year and he loved the place.

    • Nothing like a high fence or a closed door to make me want to snoop Alan! We really enjoyed Zanzibar…so very interesting and different as well. Combining beach plus city was perfect.
