My trip to Italy last year was the first time I’d ever been overseas. Most of the trip was spent walking across Tuscany and Umbria. We’d stop in a small town, grab a bite to eat, explore and then continue walking to our destination that evening.
For me, the trip revitalized my love of photography. It’s a hobby that I enjoy, but between work and my own projects it always seems to take a back seat. The exception, of course, is when I’m traveling.
Flowers neatly line the staircase to a home in Assisi.
From the time we landed in Rome I was overcome with an odd obsession—the doors.
It’s impossible not to have some sort of curiosity towards the doors of Italy. Each one is different. Some have ornate designs, while others have a spartan-like minimalism. Some are surrounded by flowers, others by stone.
This photography project shows off some of my favorite entrances. I don’t remember where many of these were taken, and I regret not taking the time to write down the addresses or more about each place. If you recognize one of these, please get in touch.
