French doors

I often notice doors when I travel, the color or size or ornamentation. Here are some I noticed while traveling around France on my Overseas Adventure Travel (O.A.T.) tour.

This door in Barbizon caught my eye because it was set back into the building and because of the carvings.

In Lyon, sometimes the door caught my eye, but more often it was the decorative work above the door that entranced me.

Red doors on churches often catch my eye. The one on the left is in Paris and the one on the right is in Bayeux.

Purple is my favorite color, so the doors to this church in Sarlat won my heart.

    The colors and surrounding trims attracted my attention.
    Thank you for sharing your travels.

    Ps as you suggested the purple was the most attractive.

    I was in a store once and the cashier said, “I guess purple is your favorite color.” “Why do you say that?” I asked. “Because you are wearing a purple hat, purple coat, and even your shoes are purple.” Duh. It is such a happy color and there are so many varieties.
