Thursday Doors – April 27, 2017

“Gloria’s - San Jose del Cabo”

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.

“Gloria’s – San Jose del Cabo”

I thought it would be a good day to revisit one of my Mexico photos today. You see, I had the full intention to build a large collection of Mexican doors from this trip. What I learned was, never try to do it before 9:00am, as they are all locked up.

In this case, and in many others, not just the doors are locked with wrought iron gates, but so are the windows. This practice seemed to be quite common in San Jose del Cabo, a moderate sized town at the south end of Mexico’s Baja peninsula. The concept of locked doors has also been replaced by a preference for chains and padlocks, which was evident even on the modern doors of some of teh local banks.

Sadly, I was not able to return on this visit to get a shot of the door by itself, it looks like a beauty, so will have to plan a return trip 🙂

  1. Oh, the things you learn about while traveling. When our daughter and I were in Costa Rica, almost every door and window had grill work and the yards were fenced and gated. Evidently squatters will occupy empty houses and there must be theft as well. Sad.


  2. That’s too bad but the morning light sure did make the colours pop – gotta find the positive in everything 😀

  3. Colorful building and door! With all of the bars on the windows and doors, I’m guessing it’s not a good street for an evening stroll.
