Keepers of mysteries.
Releasers into the great unknown.
As I walked along the streets of Amsterdam, some doors would catch my eye.
Whether it was the door itself or the architecture surrounding.
Doors of Amsterdam.
Ready to start the tour?
Let’s stroll along and take in the views of some doors found along the streets of Amsterdam.
I am a village boy, and Amsterdam for me was always the big town.
– Anton Corbijn
A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke.
– Vincent Van Gogh
It is better to fail with your own vision than to fail with another man’s vision.
– Johan Cruijff
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.
– Corrie Ten Boom
A work is finished when the artist realizes his intentions.

…but… the photo is Amsterdam…and c’mon, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are beacons of wisdom.

Wonderful sample 🙂
Thanks Joey! 🙂
I really like the 2nd door with the round window and beveled detail around it. Nice one!
Thanks Joanne. I loved the detailing in that one as well. 🙂
Hey Amy – I was thinking of u with all the Florida weather last week- hope u are well!
And enjoyed your doors – stately and strong – and the graffiti one – hah!
Thank you so much for your concern. I safely live in Virginia. My family in Naples went through Irma and came out on the other side unharmed, although with some scary moments in the midst of. I posted of it some on Tuesday. They have cleanup and my brother will need to replace his roof. Power is still some time away due to the fact that they were on the NE side of the eye wall and the power grid severely damaged.
The graffiti one was hilarious and much unexpected as we wandered along a side street. I knew that MUST have a photo of it. 🙂
I will try and go to the Tuesday post but thanks for giving me the scoop – and wow – they were right in the path and glad it was not worse – ttys
Awesome pics Amy.
Thank you Miriam. 🙂
You’re most welcome
Lovely images and sentiments. Thank you for sharing them!
Thanks so much Manja! 🙂
this was an eclectic bunch of doors! How about that big blue eye and green tongue!! Wonder who lives there?
That graffiti one was very much unexpected. We were walking around the corner of a neighborhood and there it was. I was like I MUST have have a photo of that.
A fine collection of doors! You have s good eye!
I was cruising down the row, thinking “How elegant!” Then I got to that BNE pink door. Ha, ha. Had to smile.
That one was an amusing surprise to me as well!
That Winnie quote hits the mark! Great pics, especially love the door where you have to step a few steps below ground, but there are flowers so it just seems cute and not anxiety-inducing! 🤣
I do love that Winnie quote! I need to bring it back around into current usage! I’m glad you enjoyed the tour. I loved how those flowers made that space below street level seem a little more inviting!
