Doors in Roma – Part 3

First off I’d like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. I hope you all get to enjoy your turkey day with family and friends, and that you have much to be thankful for 🙂

Continuing on our walking tour around Rome this week, here’s another collections of interesting specimens.

And in case you missed the previous installments, you can check out all of the beautiful doors I found  in part 1 here and in part 2 here.

I love the color of this one.

Ooh good a corner door!

Even better, a curved corner door!

They can’t all be pretty in the traditional sense.

So which one(s) did you like best?

As always, I thank you so much for visiting.

  1. Loved that curvy corner door plus all of the other doors; you certainly made the best out of your trip! Seeing the universal blog in your photos (graffiti), I also wondered what the Romans did for graffiti when building Rome; was it I, II, III, IV, V, X, LX etc.? 😉

  2. Can’t go against the Snow that Melts above. 😉 The curvy corner door has no rival! But I love it how many of your doors come with a little extra: a pigeon, a yellow doorbell (or is it alarm?), graffiti, statues… all that Italy provides happily, randomly and constantly. That Year 9 is a riddle though…

    As always, a great collection Norm! #21 was very interesting. I loved that blue door! It’s placement in white stone really set it off. There’s also something intriguing about the rounded entry door.

    These doors are all beautiful (well, perhaps the graffiti’ed one could use a bit of a clean-up), but they are rather formidable. I’m not sure that any of them strike me as welcoming. The second one, in particular, made me feel a bit nervous about entering. Am I being watched? Is that head going to fall on me? LOL

  6. More incredible doors. I tried to pick my favorite but couldn’t! I do like the “rounded” door on the corner and the first door with the top. But, wow, so many beautiful ones.

    You must have had a great time taking all these, Norm 🙂
    That fourth one, black, looks like it could be metal, with studs everywhere and camera mounted on the side? … Forbidding. Pretty sure I don’t want to go inside 🙂

      Thank you for joining us. I’m not sure if I mentioned it before but the links go on our link-up list, not in the comments section. Look for the blue froggie button near the end of my post that says “click here to view or add your links”. The rest is pretty straightforward. While you’re there you’ll be able to visit some of the entries from the other contributors. It’s a great way to meet new door lovers. Cheers 🙂

    The curved doors must be a challenge to make, but it’s even more telling that they survive so well.

  12. Another wonderful set. I like the one with the traffic lights. I wonder how you got so many doors without cars or motorbikes parked outside.

  14. The door with the bust on top speaks to me – unusual! You must have walked for hours to catch all these doors in Rome – hope you also did some other things:)

      Well Jan I figure with about 8 billion of them on our planet a few of those human beings are bound to show up in some of my shots from time to time 😀
      Keeping warm but it looks like it’s going to be a long winter.

  20. So many fabulous doors, Norm. It’s a good job Thursday Doors wasn’t about when I was in Rome with my sisters. I would have driven them mad trying to take even more photos than I did.

    Magnificent doors, Norm. The green door with the iron work on the fan light, and the curved door with surrounding curved stone work are my faves. Thank you for three weeks of this door collection.

  22. Lovely collection of Roma doors. My favorite is the deep blue one. Not a color you see very often.

    Wonderful doors, Norm! The curved door and stone arch is my fave. I will have to head over to Rome doors #1 and #2 to see the other lovely specimens from your trip, although I’ve been catching some here and there on Instagram. I can hardly imagine what a beautiful and intriguing city Rome is for doors and many other reasons.

    Yes, I’m making a guest appearance today. A holiday allows me the privilege of hanging out with everyone. Happy Thursday to you and please have a piece of pie in honor of our Thanksgiving.

    I like the doors, huge, with the man walking in front of them, while the statues of elders, huge, stare down on the man. There’s something poetic about that photo.

    • Norm 2.0 says:

      Thanks Ally. It was a busy stretch of road so I shot that one a few times. With and without foot traffic in front of it. I thought the lone man would make for a good perspective shot but the statues appearing to glare down at him was an added bonus 🙂

    Door no. 12 – I would like to see them in the evening, I suspect that this stained glass (?) in the tympanum is beautiful

  30. You managed to include a bit of everything here, Norm: wooden doors, doors with graffiti, corner doors, a gorgeous rounded door, busts, etc. I’m thankful to have found Thursday Doors and all the lovely doorkeepers who participate.

    The curved door gets full marks for uniqueness!!

    Based on the first couple of doors, I thought you were going for a door-within-a-door theme. The first one still has my attention. I’m puzzling over the lock on the top left. I can only assume it is locking the transom window … but it looks so odd.

    I also really like the 4th one down. This doorway gets big points for being different, but it’s the pigeon in front that’s the icing on the cake. It looks like the bird is waiting for the door to open 🙂

    • Norm 2.0 says:

      On the first one? I’m not sure that’s a lock; I think it might be a security camera..hmm. I’ll have to try zooming in on the original.
      Yes the pigeon! I kept waiting for him to leave and he wouldn’t, so I took the shot anyway. And now it turns out that he’s the star of that shot 😀

  33. Absolutely wonderful doors, Norm. I wish I had something to contribute this week, but the doors I saw on Santorini were rather dull. The landscape was much more interesting. I have a door in mind from Crete for next week!

    With each door I was saying “oooh, this is my fav.” I liked the horizontal hardware (although I want to hang a dish towel on them) and I even like the repairs-in-progress. But the curved corner door wins the prize. That is an amazing door, Norm. A beautiful entrance ringed in stone and a great photo in tight conditions. I hope you weren’t standing in traffic.

    I know it’s not your holiday but I hope you’re having a great day today. I am thankful for the work you do.

  35. The green one pops right off the screen and made me smile. Love the hardware, the oval windows with the crosses, and the blue one looks like there is a secret door on the right, but the size is also fascinating – tall, short, wide, narrow. Rome, Italy, truly is a destination for a bucket list. 🙂
