The quirky wanderer has a penchant for doors.
Where ever she goes the first thing that captures her eyes is a door. It is quite inexplicable. But doors have always fascinated me. The colors, textures and patterns on Indian doors are remnants of an old , forgotten world. And living in concrete jungles, finding a bright, freshly painted , aesthetic door is a delight in itself.
Today’s post is a Picture post. I will let the doors do the talking. Of course these are some from my collection over various Villages and towns in India.
Each door has its own story. The locals often giggle when I am photographing their doors. One bewildered lady once asked me,” Darwaza kyu kheech rahe ho?” (Why are you clicking a Door?)
I couldn’t put in words, these are our connect to our culture. Our cities may have skyscrapers and modern amenities, but they don’t have bright blue doors , which can lift your mood instantly 🙂
Walking through Vrindavan and finding such doors..
Rajasthan has some beautiful, eye capturing doors 🙂
Rugged, rusty and barren doors can be beautiful too.
So here’s a glimpse into my collection. Let me know your “door” stories, if any, would love to hear!
