Thursday Doors, February 9 2017

We are back to Siena for another doorfest.

Which reminds me: my sister, who did the guest Asian Thursday Doors post on here last week, said, reading all your encouraging comments: “You all are so cute! Such enthusiasm! As if they were puppies and not doors.”

Here they are then, almost twenty Siena door puppies. Included is one close-up, so you can see that from up close these ancient doors are far from clean. There is bestia, and uncle you know already too. The first part of Siena doors can be found here.

    I am with Janet; the 3rd one is such a unique design it stands out even more than the others for me. You’ve motivated me to go back through my archives and look at my pics from Siena again too.
    Your sister has a great sense of humour.
    So from now on this is how I’ll compliment nice doors:
    “Ahh look at that cute door!”
    “Who’s a pretty door?” *Gently petting the door*
    “YOU’RE a pretty door, that’s who!” 😀

    1. Hhahhaha, imagine somebody overhearing that! As if we were not nutty enough! 😀 Have you found any nice Siena doors yet? I think there, more than in other places, they keep jumping in the frame. And thanks, Norm, I think this is exactly how sis meant it. 😀

        It seems that I wasn’t the door fanatic that I am today. Very few door pics from Siena. Lots of shots from inside the Duomo though.

      2. And I haven’t been inside the Duomo yet…

      Bwahahahahaha!!!!

      I think this is going to stick now whenever I see a door that makes me say wow! 😀

  8. Oh, I was oohing, and ahhing throughout this post. Such gorgeous and interesting doors! You hit the jackpot!

    That door with all the little panels, and busts on the wall is AMAZING!

    1. Thank you, Deborah! It’s a question whether this door opens at all… Maybe just for some major religious feast.

    Amazing door – love the pinkish one. A church?

    1. Pinkish walls, you mean, Jan? Can’t find any pinkish door. The grand building with huge doors and slightly pinkish walls is Siena Cathedral.

    I visited Siena once – it seems a lifetime ago! – and I loved the architecture. Thanks for bringing back those memories with these beautiful doors!

    1. You’re very welcome, Vanessa. I must say that out of everything I’ve seen in Italy so far, Siena made the strongest impression.

  14. Oh I love, love, love the door in the curved wall! It’s just wonderful. I’m dying to get through it. And I also love the double doors with big round knobs right in the center, at chest level. I saw knobs like that in Santiago. That is not a thing here in the US, so obviously, I think instantly of Hobbits.

    1. Thank you, Crystal, good to see you hop around my blog. Yes, these knobs can make you instantly feel very little. Maybe that was the idea.

    Aah, beloved Siena. My favourite city. Contradas, steps, squares and ricciarelli. Oh and doors.

    1. Oh, yes, Scooj, I must say it’s possibly my favourite too so far. And ricciarellis are my amore’s favourite biscuits. 🙂 Just not interested in seeing the Palio. You can see why at the end of this post:

        I saw it when I was a boy in the ’70s. It is raw, savage and dangerous. I’m not sure how I would view it now.
