Windows and doors camera phone pics 365-42

I am a sucker for windows and doors. I love really cool colors or old antique dark wood. If I am out with the camera, odds are I will get a pic of at least one window or door.

Today I got both in one shot. I was carrying the munchkin and had to use my camera phone. 😦 It is grainy, but the picture speaks for itself. The building is so old it is made kinda like an old sod house.

At the bottom you can see where it is falling apart and the slat frame is exposed. The backyard is a mess, but sports a fading well and a building at the back of the property that had some fabulous old arches.

In the village I took this at a distant relatives home. I always find new subjects to shoot when out for a stroll.

There are some unusually tiny window in most of the homes here. They are for bathrooms or shpice closets. Shpice closets are pantries that are usually a bit cool and used for storing food as well as pots and pans.

Sometimes there are separate kitchens to keep a place from over-heating in the summer. This is our tiny summer kitchen in the village and the little window for venting.

Notice the ancient cool stove. I love sitting beside it when it so cold outside and so do the cats. 😉

This arched old door from Turkish times is one of my favorites. The green comfortable color could only be upstaged if it were a byzantine blue.

Enjoy your Monday.
