More from Malta for this week’s post for Thursday Doors.

I’m glad I decided to group my Maltese doors into colours as it’s made me look more closely at pictures I might otherwise have overlooked.

In putting this post together for Norm’s Thursday Doors I’ve clicked past all doors which are not blue.

Green Doors in Valletta can be seen here.

Next week it’ll be red doors, or yellow, or perhaps brown. Or maybe even those doors which are so old and weather-beaten that you can’t tell what colour they started out as.

All these images were taken in Valletta, or in one of its ‘Three Cities” across the Grand Harbour.

Gorgeous! All that blue, and the sky, too!

    Thanks Joey. I sure am missing it all now Im back in UK

After seeing your lovely photos I might even be tempted to switch from red to blue as my favourite colour door, 🙂

    HMB · 3 June 2017 at 20:38

    I’m the same! I always favour red, but Maltese Mediterranean blue to match the sea and the sky ……aaah…..I’m missing the sunshine.

Beautiful blue doors on a bright day. The buildings and surrounding architecture look whitewashed against the sunny day allowing the blue doors to stand out nicely.

      jesh stg · 1 June 2017 at 20:22

      I know what you mean – sometimes our camera doesn’t “get” our intention, lol!
