“Real Mexican Art?” - Todos Santos

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

“Real Mexican Art?” – Todos Santos, Mexico

I found this gem while visiting Hotel California, in Todos Santos, a large town on the Baja Peninsula.While walking with my family, I was attracted to this door being framed by the two round windows, an unusual design. So, I made a quick image and then hurried to catch up with the group.

It was not till I was reviewing the image that I noticed the details of the sign above the door. It made me laugh. Honesty in advertising? I’m not sure, but after a few days of touring the gift shops and having every merchant tell me they had the best price around, that it was all authentic art, made by local villagers, or an isolated tribe from the surrounding mountains, this was kind of refreshing.

Too bad the door was locked, it would be interesting to see what they are actually selling, if anything.

  1. The sign made me smile! the “real phony” sounds like a double negative:) True, one doesn’t see many round windows in California. Thanks for visiting!

  2. The sign was the first thing I noticed when I looked at the photo … and yes, it made me smile. It is signage like that which makes you want to go in and look 🙂

  3. That is cute. If I was walking past and had the time, that sign would have convinced me to go in and check it out.

  4. I love the fact that the sign was obviously originally cut to be set much lower and has now been rehung up high making the eccentric shape completely redundant.
