Thursday Doors – March 16, 2017

“House of the War”

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.

“House of the War” – Art District, San Jose del Cabo

Today, I’m returning to yet another interesting door in San Jose del Cabo’s Art District. This one just screamed out “Take a picture of me!” It is such a bold and different door, though I’m not sure how practical it is, since the door panels overlap. It makes me wonder about the intent, both for the door and for the name of the art studio behind them. The bold red and painted flowers certainly got my attention.

Like last week, I checked out the door on Google Streetview and it looks completely different.

One final note on some of these facades, which is really what they are. What, at first glance, looks like concrete, is really, in most cases, styrofoam coated in adobe or plaster and painted to look like stone.

I do have to apologize for the quality of the image, which I usually take great pride in, but I was travelling in unknown parts and had to rely on my iPhone and harsh mid-day light.

  1. Ed, it’s definitely eye-catching and worth taking a shot of no matter what. I also wondered about the over-lapping doors! As for the iPhone, I take most of my shots with an iPhone, so no need to apologize.


    • I have no idea of how the overlap works. In fact, like so many photos, I missed that detail, as I snapped the photo and hurried to keep up with the rest of my family, who think I’m a bit bonkers for always photographing doors. It was the bright red and green that caught my attention.
