Door shadow


Shadows above ten foot Florentine doors

Beautiful doors. I love old buildings. If only the same attention to detail existed in new buildings.

Love the soft touch of shadow round the doors! Gives them depth and dimension!

Ah, the doors! I couldn't get enough of them in Rome - every one we came to; I'm sure my husband couldn't understand my raptures over a door!
