Street / 26

Time for another Street post…back to Sicily. Old doors, new brickwork, and a lad alone in his own zone, intent on his tech…..

  1. I often wonder why they needed such high doors. (Very tall hats perhaps?)
    Still, good old Sicily came up with the goods again.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      It would have to be a very tall person, even so! Many churches in Sicily had super-tall doors….but isn’t that the way. With religious buildings anŷway?

      • Thinking about it, the religious buildings would need tall doors for the passage of icons and statues carried in procession. Other entrances would have to be high enough for a horseman to ride through of course.
        Answered my own question, I suppose!
        (Though I was thinking of non-religious ones when I wrote that)

        After I responded to your comment, I thought of icons and statues in procession, but got caught up in something else and forgot to post!!

  2. Great image, Sue. Yes, those doors are super tall, and must have been so heavy to put in place. 🙂

  3. Way to capture the moment, Sue.

  4. I was so busy looking at the doors and the brick work that I almost missed the person! He really gives perspective the the sheer size of the doors 🙂

  5. Although one often tries to avoid people in photos this gives fantastic perspective Sue.

  6. Those are some doors there – large enough do you think?

  7. Wow Sue! That’s some door! It wouldn’t have looked that big without that man sitting on the steps for reference, looking very noncholant about the whole thing, not a care in the world. Or maybe lost in the cares of his mobile phone 😉
