When you visit a place, you make a list of all the landscapes you want see. Those landscapes are usually museums, national parks, historic monuments and other places that have gathered the attention of the entire world. But, there are some other landscapes that you discover while walking around the streets and trying to find the desired monuments. These landscapes are the doors of random houses. I have felt the need to photograph doors quite a few times while I was away travelling and I must tell you that some of these doors were way more satisfying than a few of the most famous landscapes.
1. Yongle, Sechuan Province, China
This colorful door in Yongle, Sechuan Province, China is like a person full of wrinkles. They might seem old and outdated, but they are definitely full of wisdom.
2. Reykjavik, Iceland
Somewhere in Reykjavik, Iceland you can find this pink door that may be old, but its color makes it look very modern.

Even though I visited Barcelona and walked around the entire town, I feel so unlucky that I never got to see this door.
4. Lisbon, Portugal
It might be old and its color might have faded, but combined with its surroundings, this door in Lisbon, Portugal is absolutely magical.
5. Paris, France
This door is Paris, France is for those who say that street art is dirt and it ‘uglifies’ the cities. If you think that this is dirt, then something is really wrong with you.

7. Jodhpur, India
This door’s design, color and surroundings in Jodhpur, India make us wonder what is hiding behind it. Is it a church or a simple house?
8. The Cotsworlds, England
This one may be new and unscratched, but there is something so positive and perfect about it that it makes sense that it can be found at The Cotsworlds, England.
They say that our eyes are a depiction of our soul. In that same sense, doors are indicating the kind of people that one house or building has inside. Never forget that people show they true selves through things that are not easily noticed.
