A bird on the head……

……..is worth two on the bench …..but only in



Can you spot the keyhole on this door? And a couple of secret panels?

I wasn’t the only one in the Gothic Quarter that day photographing doors for Norm’s Thursday Doors.

Perhaps Norm knows who this is. Perhaps its Norm in disguise!!

Every big door of any importance has a Mini-Me Door-within-a-Door:

Looks like there’s about 18 apartments in this building.

Presumably the door opens electronically when buzzed. If not, then there’s a hang of a lot of gigantic doorkeys being carted around Barcelona :

I love the door within a door, but too bad about all the graffiti. It detracts from the beautiful door.

    The graffiti is part of Barcelona style, believe it or not! It’s only ever on doors, and is on all doors in Gothic Quarter, though some is more artistic than others! In UK graffiti is the sign of a rundown neighbourhood but in hipster Barcelona it’s cool Thanks for visiting , Joanne.

Yes, I spotted the keyhole in that first door and I think I spotted the secret panels as well. A wonderful colourfull collection, Helen.

What a fun collection. What are you suggesting? That I’m the big bad wolf with a camera? 😀

    Well if you looked as nice as you do on your picture, it wouldn’t be much of a disguise
