Theme Day: Doorways



I posted a small version of this photo a year ago, but I thought it was the best depiction of a doorway that I could think of.


This is located in downtown Phoenix on the grounds of St. Mary’s Basilica. The doorway was preserved from a long gone school and placed here with a special dedication to the nuns who taught there. Through the opening you can see the bronze sculpture by Gary Price called “Circle of Peace”.

This is a beautiful "doorway".

great choice and if people enlarge it, the details and size is more impressive as well as the statues through the doorway.

This is an impressive doorway. I would have liked to have seen the rest of the building. Too bad they could not save it.

What a beautiful and ingenious way to use the door! The entire square/garden becomes a memorial and a wonderful statement.
