Old doors fascinate me. Even though I admire those thick beveled glass doors, they don’t hold a lot of character compared to a massive church door or the old wooden doors of old homes or buildings.
Old doors aside from witnesses to the past, are strong and more interesting. What they are made of and how they look like gives us a glimpse of what were then available and silent personification of the artists who labored over them. Each door from the past era customized according to the requirements and specifications of the owners tell us a lot of stories.
Whether they were to protect the objects or people behind them or simply for aesthetics each was just as different from the other. Am glad that there are still many that has withstood the test of times, otherwise we would be left with mass produced doors which are plain and boring looking.
