gallery Thursday Korčula Doors, part three

Look at me, I actually showed up on time for Norm’s Thursday Doors event! Feeling pretty frisky this morning with the crisp, fall air making a brief appearance in Earlysville so I decided to enjoy this exceptional morning with coffee and thoughts on the back porch. Today is good…

These fotos are my final installment from our Korčula day trip and contain a few of my favorites. How is it a one-dimensional foto can evoke a three-dimensional memory? As I sift through these final moments of our splendid adventure I remember how much fun we girls had simply because we listened to a few people who’d been there before and read a travel book about this must see Dalmatian island. Who is it that said,

“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

Each time I visit someplace new I am reminded how small our world is and I am just a small piece of the puzzle. I am enchanted with the mundane and great aspects of another’s way of everyday living. I make note of their roads and if they twist and turn through cities or countryside – are they cobbled, brick, or limestone like most of the paths I walked in Croatia. I visit local museums and notice how extravagantly or modestly they tell the stories of their past. I cannot help but marvel over the architecture pointing out the similarities and differences compared to my  surroundings back home.  Overwhelmingly, I detect how alike all our doors are, near and far. They speak the same language, telling me, “Come closer and see what lies beyond.”

This week we are hosted by Manja who is sitting in for Norm. Visit her blogging home to see what she and the other door lovers are sharing from their excursions or very own neighborhoods. You may just get the urge to travel. Until next time…

  1. I’ve gone on several of your Thursday Doors posts and I must say you leave my small contributions in the dust … some of these are just exquisite … beyond exquisite. I am so glad I am tagging along on this journey. I know my contributions will be few and far between unless I dig into my old travel photos from years back, but I likely didn’t focus on doors, unless an unusual one on a historical building caught my eye. Just beautiful and I like how you captioned and presented all of these doors as well.

  2. Ahh, thank you for the invitation to my blogging home, Denny. 🙂 It’s a lovely expression and it’s just what it is.

    I was so happy to follow you on your adventures so close to me, in my former territory, feeling the sea of my childhood and seeing the views I know. This is a beautiful door collection but there is more. I love the fortress, and the pictures, and the “Come closer” door. Such a beauty!

    You are right: whether you go around or not defines who you are. So let’s go! And the ‘č’ is perfect now! 🙂
