Roman Thursday Doors

Yesterday I took a tour through my photos of Italy and paused on these. How is it our photographs can immediately conjure fondness for the places we’ve been in a split second? The smell and heat of the steamy pavement rose up to me while looking at a some of these while the coolness of the stones under my fingertips reminded me of walking through the tunnels of the Colosseum.  I have not been travelling lately and do feel the itch to do so soon. How I  long to return to this colorful part of the world and add more photographs to my collection…how can 400 be too few? Here are random Roman doors (and doorways) belonging to the Vatican, the Colosseum, and places I cannot remember where.

When you are done here venture over to Norm’s to walk through the doorways of others who share this obsession of collecting door photos. We are here every Thursday!


  1. I don’t think we could find similarly embellished doors and walls in this country. We’re too new! I also have many, many photos of places I visited in Europe and Israel when I was lucky enough to be sent there by my parents immediately after graduating from college. I have not been back since, but my daughters are leaving next week to start a similar experience. They’re going to be together in Israel for days, then one of them will be traveling in Greece and Italy for another couple of weeks with her boyfriend.

    I was a lot more anal retentive when I took my trip, and took copious notes on the places and objects I photographed at the time. Many of them made their way into the photo albums I assembled. Curious to see how my girls will mentally and emotionally categorize and organize their experiences, 40 years later!
