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.
I'm a Queenslander by birth and after nearly 20 years in the Northern Territory I've returned to my home state. I've been researching my Queensland ancestors for nearly 30 years and like most Aussies I'm a typical "mongrel" with English, Irish, Scottish and German ancestry.

I love that first photograph! An amazing collection of doors you have here.
Yes it was a fine balance between being intrusive and capturing the moment.
What wonderful doors, did you find out what was behind the last one?
I love carved wooden doors; they are so solid and enduring.
I agree Kat, these ones are so imposing and will last/have lasted for a very long time.
A fascinating travelogue of fascinating doors !
Thanks Susan, glad you liked them.
Love those doors. I take door pictures as I travel – there is just a variety out there – with interesting stories behind them.
I find doors, windows and walls quite intriguing Jill, as well as ruined buildings (houses and barns). I have heaps of photos of them all over the place.
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
I can’t remember that at the Tower Jo…must be time I went again 🙂
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.
Beautiful — what a clever theme to focus on carved doors.
Thanks Wendy, the travel photos came to mind while no family ones did 😉
Great gads, what fun! Your doorways are so exciting!
Glad you enjoyed them Karen!
Lovely photos. I love to photograph doors and windows when I travel too.
I agree Lorraine, they’re really interesting features of the places we visit, especially those of ordinary houses.
