Tough to narrow it down, seems we all like photographing these subjects!

Ed, this one is through the window of La Antigua Abaceria in Seville. If you didn't get there I'm sure it would have been on your list😉

 

I passed it many times, Mark, but didn't get to have the lunch I planned before leaving. I took this snap from just below it on the river.

This months challenge should produce some great images. We togs love our doors and windows.

I've narrowed mine down to 8 and forgot to look for doors! I can also think of one on S I particularly like. Tough challenge. 

 

On Chrome on a Mac I open two windows and drag the photo from one into the discussion. It used to work with a right click and paste, but hasn't in a few years.

In hindsight, I probably should have gone with one or other, sorry folks. Using Chrome, I open two widows and drag the photos into the discussion thread.

Congratulation on the win, and on such a great new challenge for us all, Michael.

 

Here is my humble three.

Just to participate, as some of the photographs already entered are of very high calibre.

 

So first through a windshield (Is this accepted as a window?):

San-Mon or Main Door of the Jindaiji in Tokyo, Japan:

Good luck everybody, it is great to be able to "travel" through so many door and vista, even if only via photographs on a screen.

Edinburgh.

It's next to a door and it shows windows. And I like it. Occasionally zoomed; never sold.

 

Congratulations Michael! You have your work cut out for you.

funny thing about that, i think 4 times in past year and a half i have thought that, and once the image didn't make the finalist, another time it was a low vote, and twice the image did win by a landslide,  both time by some photographer.
