An old weathered door


I took this a while ago and can't remember where it was. I think that face on the door looks like William Shakespeare, or is it just me?

TKV has an eclectic taste when it comes to stencils, so I think that could be Frida Kahlo... or Tobić Tobić... not sure, but one or the other definitely. Or maybe it is Shakespeare after all...

excellent capture of detail, light and mood. I love this history

Wonder if the guy who built those doors thought they would still be swinging. ha ha

Only in mainland Europe cold you find such beautiful decay.

Can you just imagine it in it's glory days??

I love the blue with the old wood. Beautiful.

I agree with Babooshka; and these doors and facade are beautiful. Though Frida Kahlo did have a sort of dark mustache/facial hair, I think this still looks like William!

You're right, it does look like Shakespeare :)

I love old wood and I think the door is wonderful! Of course, I want to strip the rest of the paint from it. And that carved stone arch — gorgeous!

Reminds me of a depiction of The Canterville Ghost which is a short story by Oscar Wilde.
But that is just me - and CG was Elizabethan too.

Instantly I think of Dickens' Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Past! Overall, intriguing combination of stone and woodwork textures!
