Doors tell a lot.
There have been many artists that have done their whole portfolio based on doors.
Doors tell you if there is something behind them that is worth blocking or guarding.
They tell you of how old they are and how many time they may have been knocked down.
Some doors are massive like these.
Others are tiny, big enough for only a body to walk through, sometime sideways and hunched down a little.
These doors have been around for quite a few years.
They make a statement.
They tell a story.
They offer a mystery.
These doors appear that they were only used for people.
Lots of people, I don't think horses came through these portals, but you never know.
The thickness of the wood, the craftsmanship would cost a pretty penny now. Or rather peso.
The wood is at least 4 to 5 inches thick, and that's at the thinnest part. There are many doors like this around Mexico.
Some held in the families of Haciendas of the past.
This door has been around many generations of owners. One of my favorite things to photograph are doors and doorways.
I figured you might enjoy seeing this massive piece of handcraft.....
The newer version on the left just doesn't have any history to it in comparison..............
