Can you tell where doors originate just by looking at them, Bucharest or Paris, and will you play the game and guess – just for fun?
Only 14 doors, guess, then hold the mouse over or tap the image to find out the door’s origin, Bucharest or Paris – there’s no right or wrong, it’s fun!
I like Norm’s Thursday Doors feature because it brings out doors’ positive vibes. Each Thursday doors smile under the lens, they are inviting or mysterious, cheery, dressed up for the occasion or caught in their PJs… Chatty on their front porch, from behind a mask of flowers, or bashful at the end of a dark corridor that, perhaps, does not represent them.
Doors open towards light or pull your attention towards overlooked territory. Doors guard, as well as offer secrets, to the curious and the brave that will open them.
When I think of a door my mind jumps to wood. Wood, brought from forests, has been available to humankind from ancient times and has been widely used, so much so that today we can speak of a civilization of wood in its many crafted forms. Except for iron, humans have relied on wood for transport, weapons, shelter, household and religious objects, rituals and even for jewellery and currency 🙂 So much so that wood entered the folklore and mythology of many nations.
So, when we open a door, we glimpse into our past.
Have you notices how you recognize each (close) family member by the way they open a door? Is the door recognizing each one of us too? By the bounce in our step, by the quickness of our breath, or the time in the day we approach it? If yes, what is she thinking? Do we want to know? 🙂
First look at the photos below and take your guess, Bucharest or Paris, then scroll with your mouse over the image to discover if you were right. If you view from your phone, hold onto the picture to select it and you can see the location city 🙂
I’ll star with one of my favorite doors in the world!
If you are a Harry Potter fan, then Door Number 4 is a must see. Scroll up and have another look for it is the door to 51 rue de Montmorency in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris where Nicolas Flamel, a historical character in Harry Potter, lived during the fourteenth century and is supposed to have discovered how to make a Philosopher’s Stone.
