WordPress Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme- Doors

Blue Camino door“Windows open out onto the universe around you, but doors will take you to where your imagination lies.”
― Anthony T. Hincks

I have always been fascinated with doors, both literal and metaphorical.  What lies behind them?  Always I have found in my life when one door closes another one will open- often leading to a much better place.

All photos shot in 2013 along the Camino de Santiago with the exception of the yellow door which was shot in Ireland in 2017.
