In the book Kokology II, a door not only represents an entrance or an exit. It also has a psychological interpretation. It is either considered a protective wall or a welcoming arc. 

Doors are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. In my opinion, a door sets the mood for every room that it guards. A door, if picked especially by the owner, is also a key item in translating one's personal style and the message you want to send to the public. :)

Here are a few of my door-ic finds. :)

 This makes me feel there's a quiet family inside . Conservatively living. :)

 For me, the dark doors and concrete fence are intimidating to look at; that it's guarded. 
On the other hand, the watermelon green and brown combo seem to house an adventurously stand-out family. 
I like it! :)

'Lovely homes' is what I call them. Those enlivened with ornaments such as vines and 
plants in colorful pots that bloom as if it's always the season of spring. :)

 There's obviously something similar between these two that attracted me to shoot them. :)
I guess it's the glass panes that we don't normally see locally. And, there are no gates!

 No, these are not doors to enter/exit from the back of the house. They are main 
entrances. No fences. Look, it even has a mailbox! :)
For apparent reasons, this is NOT recommended in our country.

 Well, what can I say? It's a 'rich' villa, therefore, it needs to look like one! LOL :)

How about you, what's your favorite photograph subjects?  

Have a great weekend! :) Enjoy!
