Doorway, Santa Maria del Soccorso, LivornoA side door into the church of “Santa Maria del Soccorso”.Doorway, Scali Saffi, LivornoA building on the “Scali Saffi” seen from the “Scagli degli Olandesi”, just across the canal. The line of stones below is the parapet of the “Fosso Reale” (Royal Canal).

I like two of the three doorways here.

The bottom one is interesting. It looks truncated.

I like them all, but the first one is my favorite.

Three doors, each with its own unique story, together making a harmonious little post.

Sorry to see the vandalism on the church.

I was going to say, it's Wednesday!

Just the name, l'aquila nera, is terribly evocative.

Did you try to open any of these?
You found some major doors there.

The historic photo in your linked post--so tragic.

I love those arch-y doorways. I also have a doorway up today. But we're more into the columns over here.

I like these photos very much, as I like all your blog. Congratulations!

Doors... and windows... and roofs (hehe)... are like benches... Could do an endless series of them. These three are superb, but shame on whoever defaced the church wall!
