Back to my "beloved theme" doors !
This one is from an old house in Cesme,a nice summer resort not too far away from İzmir.
Most probably it was been made by a Greek blacksmith as the region had many skilled masters untill the change of peoples in the year 1924. Old but still beutiful.
Benim çok sevdiğim konuya "kapılar"a birkaç karelik bir dizi ile dönüş.
Bu kapı Çeşmede bir eve ait. Büyük bir ihtimalle 1924 mübadelesine kadar yörede yaşamlarını sürdürmüş, Rum asıllı bir ustanın elinden çıkmış. Eski ama hala güzel.

I love this. This is a beautiful unique vintage door. Very well photographed. The colour is amazing and you can see every detail carved on the door.

Hello dear Mesut,
this door is very beautiful, a real work of art. I like very much how you closed the frame around it, exalting the art, the signs of decay and the sense of mystery regarding its sad story and what lies behind it now. Textures and colours are amazing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Like you, I love doors - especially ones so spectacular as this one. The intricate workmanship here suggests that this was made by a master craftsman and it's interesting to read from your note that the man who made this door was probably Greek.
You have captured this splendid doorway perfectly. The colours of the faded paintwork are delightful, the lighting and exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
Have a Wonderful 2014!

Excellente photo de cette vieille porte qui a un peu subi les outrages du temps qui lui donnent une "patine" remarquable.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Magnifique porte cochère à deux vantaux richement décorée.
Le temps a eu raison du matériau et souligne sa beauté du passé.
Très bonne mise en image.
Meilleurs voeux pour l'année 2014.

A very good choice back to the doors.
Certainly these iron door with a lot decorative elements.
A pity of the quality of the doors, not a mistake of the photographer but of the owner.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture great.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

a very rich door with so many intricated details. It is a very pretty door indeed. Nice you have captured and showed it to us.

An exquisite work, this door is so finely detailed! If I had looked at this in a tighter crop, I would have guessed it to be an antique Chinese wardrobe, it really is as finely done as a piece of expensive furniture. Love the colors too, this is a beautiful addition to your theme.
All the best

interesting and nice old door. Good shot. I like the decorative elements. Well done photo.

Dieses Thema ist ja wirklich unerschöpflich - und hier hast Du wieder ein wunderschönes Exemplar gefunden. Auch wenn der Zahn der Zeit schon sehr an ihr genagt hat, ist dies hier immer noch viel mehr als eine Tür. Sie gibt dem Haus ein Gesicht und sie ist wirklich ein Kunstwerk. Umso mehr muss man ihren Zustand bedauern ...
Ein sehenswertes Bild!
Herzliche Grüße aus dem nasskalten Deutschland. Winter? Fehlanzeige!

J'aime le style rétro de cette vielle porte, ces décorations et sa couleur particulière mauve, bon cadrage serré

Excellent old door detail (close-up) photo with very well balanced colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.
p.s. The holly man in my photo is St George, not St Bernhard. I've added some information about St Georges to my photo note.

how cool is that to have a halogen light bulb at the top of this ancient door!
don't see that too often.
this door has seen better days, but i'm sure it has great stories to tell too.
splendid post for a door theme!
