    I’m always intrigued by doors, the beauty of their crafting and the mystery of what’s behind them. I can understand how this one captured your eye~

      We have such amazing doors, windows and gates in Santa Fe. They’ll keep us busy for years.

    I love these sorts of doors. We saw many in the desert in Chile’s Atacama Desert. The walls look s think that the temperature must stay pretty darned constant.

      The architectural heritage is probably very similar. Spain with Moorish influences.

    In a way, this reminds me of the Aramu Muru gate in Peru…
