Nobody sees the wizard, not nobody, not no how!

My neighbors have the coolest door. It looks like nine panes of leaded glass but the middle pane is hinged so it opens up. They can simply open the one little pane and talk to people without actually opening the door.

I love this door! Every time I go over there I'm reminded of the "Wizard of Oz" even though you can see them inside through all the glass.

My house has 8 doors that lead outside, some of them into thin air, from the second story of the house. I love my doors but I don't love any of them as much as I love my neighbor's door.

Their door makes me realize that there must be other very cool doors out there.

Do you know of any unusual house doors?

@farmerman,
farmer, we went there a few months ago and of course, being tourists, took pictures of the house.

I've got them hung on the bulletin board in my office.

Some I fooled around with in Paint and made them look spooky, some, just the way they are for real.

I like the house too.

Here's a cool door, it opens to the size and shape of the person going through it:

That picture makes it look like the house isn't that awfully large, considering the wealth of the man who owns it.

If you're off to the side, you can see the house goes WAY back, and to the right (facing your picture) behind those trees is a really big carriage house.

The wrought iron fence extends all around, and there's gargoyles and dragons and stuff along it.

Those are billiant, dlowan. Thanks!

I love the one with the writing on it. What does it all mean?

I love that tree gate. I saw a door handle sort of like that in a shop that I should never have gone into since I can't afford a single thing in there and it set the bar impossibly high on hardware I desire.

For those who can afford them, our area has deveoped its own unique architecture featuring heavy ornate wooden doors, sometimes fitted with ornate Spanish glass either clear or stained, that is generally referred to as “Santa Fe style” or ‘southwestern style”:

@boomerang,
I've a lot of pictures I've taken or saved of different favorite doors or gates, including some gates I designed years ago (wrought iron rabbits), but scanner not in action. Most of the doors aren't in famous places, just seen walking down the street, so I dunno re finding them online. Will see if I can ferret out my binder on doors and gates and follow anything there to online photos. Later, though.

@djjd62,
That's gorgeous DJ....and so symbolic especially for a Native American Church.

Some may have noticed that many churches, especially Episcopal churches, have red doors. Historically, a soldier could not pursue his prey past a red door which was a symbol of refuge from one's enemy. It is now also considered spiritual refuge. But some of the doors are amazing--this one in NYC for instance:
