More doors from Funchal. Hopefully I'll be able to upload them ok this time.


















Finally, a window. Just for a change.

So these are all in Portugal. Very nice. They must attract a lot of tourists.

If anything they seem to downplay them. I thought that there was only 1 street, but I now believe there are 3. A couple of these are from a small town on the north of the island.

I'm going back again in September so I'll allow a bit more time to explore more fully. The main street is quite narrow, with tall buildings, often casting dense shadows, so it can be a bit tricky trying to show them at their best.

I'm surprised they downplay them. In NY, merchants organize projects to attract tourists. In once case, they got a couple of dozen model horses, about 4' high. The merchants painted and decorated them and displayed them outside their stores. Another town had small tugboats (We're near the Hudson River) decorated and mounted on posts.

"If you build it, they will come" - and spend money.

A couple of these are bars, one is a bookshop (previous post) but most of them appear to be residential. I agree with you Jerry, but there seems to be very little publicity about them. I have about 30 different doors so far, but as I said, there are other streets, so watch this space. I went to take flower pictures, but these made a very welcome diversion. The street is virtually empty during the day, but comes to life at night. Too noisy for me then, but I'm a KOS (Knackered Old Sod) so I leave that to the youngsters.
