Sunday, May 27: Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post challenge is Door. He writes: A door is a movable structure used to open and close off an entrance, typically consisting of a panel that swings on hinges or that slides or rotates inside a space.
When open, doors admit ventilation and light. The door is used to control the physical atmosphere within a space by enclosing the air drafts, so that interiors may be more effectively heated or cooled. Doors are significant in preventing the spread of fire. They also act as a barrier to noise.
Oman has interesting doors everywhere. Some are painted metal and some are intricately carved wooden doors. I must have a real fascination with them because I have quite a huge collection of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:
This one is from Nizwa souq.
Here’s one from the village of Wekan at Wadi Mistal.
Here’s another door from the ruins at Al Hamra.
