Open the door....

Doors to new and exciting places. It is wonderful to imagine how many people have passed through these doors over the centuries. Living in South Africa, which is a relatively 'young' country in terms of architechture, I find it amazing to see buildings that have stood,unchanged, for hundreds of years.There is such beautiful attention to detail, in the knockers,handles and hinges.The workmanship on the cathedrals (the one in the photo is at Astorga) is unbelievable and timeless in its design.This in great contrast to the simple rustic doorway in the photo above it.
