A Week in Essaouira - 3: Doors 2


Many doorways have doors-within-doors, as above and below.





My husband told me that this was the door into the women's mosque but, as a non-moslem, entry was still forbidden to me.




Lovely carved plasterwork (gep) above blue and white tiles and studded blue door.





A door to a shop or a workshop, close to the ancient ramparts - matched by my son's t-shirt!




Another beautiful pair we stumbled upon in the maze of medina streets.






The entrance to the artisanal school and workshops by the Bab (Gate) Marrakesh.





And a lovely defunct doorway arch in an alleyway by the old (pink) medina walls, beside the Villa Maroc.

Hello! I discovered your blog through CreativeEveryday. The name just spoke to me and I was compelled to click. I am so glad I did! Your door photos are so wonderful, and they fit right in with the post that I just made on my own blog. I am writing about inspiring creativity, and your doors were the perfect finale. At the end of each post, I have a Check It Out where I list a blog or site that inspires me. Today, I chose The Magic Armchair Traveller. I hope you will come by to visit! Enjoy the day!
