Doorways, doors, windows, and gates always intrigue me. I first fell in love with photographing doorways in Mexico. Then, as I traveled in the southwest US, in Spain, and in Morocco I began seeing the Moorish influence as it moved to Spain and Spain's former colonies.
I think the most interesting door is the one with the hand of Fatima door knocker. This is seen on almost every door in Morocco, a symbol of Fatima, wife of Mohammad. It is interesting to see it has survived the Inquisition and I found one in Ecuador.
I have hundreds more doorway photos. I will share only these in the blog.
Yellowstone staff will be amazed at the two photos below. Ted is actually opening and closing a gate. We were visiting AnaMaria's cousin in the country. This gate led into the courtyard of the farm. For non-Yellowstone staff, the joke is that Ted is the "Doorman" at the Lake Hotel. But he is so busy"showing people the photo of himself as a "jammer" back in 1965 or chatting with folks, that most people have to open the door for themselves! Certainly staff have to open it to get in.
