Doors fascinate me. They can tell you a lot about people, or they can tell you a lot about a society — depending on where you are.
Household Doors here in the U.S. tend to be on new-ish construction and whether the homeowner has painted the door, or decorated it, the kind of hardware that embellishes it, or doesn’t — all these things tell us a lot about how people see themselves.
Doors in other countries — particularly those with longer histories than the U.S. tell us more about the society than about the individual. Take this door in Paris for example. Most likely it was there long before WWII. It’s lived through more trouble and seen more joy than a lot of folk yet, there it is in it’s bright red color drawing attention to itself.
