Valletta, capital of Malta, is paradise for door lovers.
I probably wrote exactly those same words on my return from last year’s trip to Malta too. Of course I’ve taken loads of other things; my OCD for photographing doors hasn’t (yet) taken me over completely. It just seems that way sometimes! Give it time and it might.
I’ve come back again this year with so many pictures of doors right I think I’ll colour code them for Norms’s Thursday Doors, starting this week with:
Green Doors in Valletta.
Valletta, the capital city of the Mediterranean island of Malta, is a small and very compact city. Many of the buildings date from the 16th Century. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is an amazing place to wander around.
Next week’s Doors in Valletta might be blue, or red, or cream or brown……..or perhaps even more of the Forty Shades of Green.
I have plenty to choose from, that’s for sure.

Super set of images Helen, I’m fascinated by the steps at the side of No. 10 🙂

That was where we went next.

Oh you found some beauties in this collection. The 2xx and the merchants door top my list of faves from this batch. Looking forward to seeing more in the coming weeks 🙂

Thanks Jim. It sure is a great place.

Certainly a large, lovely variety of doors. Looks like a great place to visit.

Each door has its character, Beautiful,. I like your color code, Helen. 🙂
HMB · 26 May 2017 at 22:32
Thanks Amy. I’ve come back with such a lot of pictures of doors that I had to start sorting them somehow,

I loved visiting Malta as well. I look forward to returning. Beautiful door shots!
HMB · 26 May 2017 at 22:34
Thanks Charles. Hope you get back to Malta soon. Fort St Angelo has opened up now. Next year Valletta is European City of Culture so there will be lots going on.

A door-lover paradise for sure!! Love!
HMB · 26 May 2017 at 22:36
Thanks Joanne. The streets in Valletta are so old and so fascinating, I couldn’t have stopped taking pictures even if I’d tried,

What a great set of doors, Green Door 2XX is my favourite. :>)
HMB · 25 May 2017 at 22:21
Thank you. Door 2XX is my favourite too.

I love all these doors. Nothing like them here in the states. We have no regard for anything old. Give us new and metal and glass. Phooey on us! 🙂
HMB · 25 May 2017 at 22:03
Just wait till you visit Europe!!!!!
sustainabilitea · 26 May 2017 at 23:38
I’ve felt like that, too, Emilio, but I realized that a brand new, or relatively new, house would look very odd with an old door that would look just right on an old home in Europe or elsewhere.
Emilio Pasquale · 26 May 2017 at 23:49
So you’re telling me I can’t have an old, weather-beaten door unless I build myself a house out of old barn wood? Or maybe I could just age my house like you can with some furniture. You, know, with those kits they have.
sustainabilitea · 26 May 2017 at 23:53
I’m telling you a hundred-year-old door would look odd on a twenty-year-old house.
