The Barri Gotic is the center of old Barcelona and some of the buildings there reportedly date to the 13th century. I saw many elaborate wood and metal doors in the Barri Gotic quarter with heavy metal hinges, massive door knockers and knobs worn down from years of use. We have all seen pictures of doors like that, but the doors that really interested me were the ones covered with graffiti. They seemed to be out of place yet at the same time I felt like they belonged right there in the narrow winding streets. I took the pictures below as I wandered around with my camera. I wonder what Blake would think of them?
The doors allow different generations to touch each other with their craft and creativity. An access portal to connect the past to the present. I can see why the doors caught your imagination. Very cool. –Perrie
