Doors and Windows

I wanted to be an architect for many years and I have an affinity for windows and doors.One wall in my house is filled with photos and drawings and a print or two, all of those elements. DH and I just went to Charleston for a little getaway and what are all my photos? Doors and windows. Here are a few:

But my favorite is this sign at the 'door'way to the beach.
It says:
Stay Out of The Water
$500 Fine-Several Drownings
Don't be next

Question: If you do drown, do you still have to pay the fine?

Ah, so it's more than just buttons that catch your attention, huh? :)
Windows can be such a lovely thing! I need to get interested in doors. We need to replace a few & I've actually never thought about them...
Fun to see these pics!

Nice pictures, I've always been drawn to them as well, but I'm not sure why.

I have always been drawn to doors and windows too. Brightly colored with chipping paint is my fave but Unique architecture is the bomb!It seems that the older the town the more I am drawn in. Oh, I feel a photo safari calling my name.

Great post.
