Gated Doorway

 Locked gate outside the yellow door

I'm not sure what this gated entrance is all about as I have never seen one like this before in a small town except for...

A second gated entrance to the door seen through the first

the one on the other side of the column leading to the same yellow door.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

Hmm, there's a story there, EG.

Now I wonder what's behind the yellow door...

Malyss said...

A door to protect an other door ...Or a place to breath between two doors.. Who knows ?

eileeninmd said...

It is a pretty entrance! Not sure why they would need two gates! Enjoy your day!

see you there! said...

Very attractive, seems like someone wants to protect something. What?

It's not a typical Canadian thing, especially in a small town.

William Kendall said...

Quite curious, EG!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...interesting....like you said, especially in a small town.

TexWisGirl said...

Debbie said...

oh how beautiful, really drawing me in!!! i love the pop of yellow!!!

Pamela Gordon said...

Love the old yellow door. The iron gates are interesting. I wonder who/what they're keeping in/out.

Judy said...

Someone who really does not want people knocking on the door...

Leora said...

I usually I say a scene is inviting, but no, not here. I'm being told - we are elegant here, and you stay away.

Rose said...

Weird, but I really like it. I do wonder what the story is, though. We might all be surprised and there is no story.

Jut sayin' STAY OUT!! MB

Barbara Wójcik said...

Very nice!

ladyfi said...

That brickwork is pretty.

Stephanie said...

Probably for added security. Love the brickwork.

Montanagirl said...

I really like it. Maybe it's for a second layer of protection!

Chandra said...

Nice and colorful. I like the bricks too.

Peace :)

Ruth Kelly said...

Gates are made for a purpose - this one looks old though.

Karen S. said...

Ah yes, and what awaits behind that lovely yellow door?

Sylvia K said...

It is colorful and it is different and I like both shots!! Great captures as always! Maybe an interesting story behind the "yellow door and two locked gates"!! Might make a great mystery story!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Oh I would love to have that entry. It would keep salesman and politicians out.

Ginny said...

There are some of these here, and they usually mean it is in a crime area. Looks like they do not want anyone getting in.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Gorgeous yellow door and I quite like the gates, the corner design must create a little bit of a courtyard entrance.

Ida said...

Intriguing gate leading to the lovely yellow door. It does make you wonder why they would have locked gates like that. I like the colors in these shots very much.

Breathtaking said...

For whatever reason the gate is there, I think this entrance has style, and adds rather than subtracts from the property.

Lisa Gordon said...

That really is very different, but wonderfully so. Both are lovely.

RedPat said...

That is new for me - never seen such a thing, EG!

Very pretty entranceway!

Alexa T said...

Lots of protection, indeed... a locked gate before the entrance in a house!! but lovely, anyway...and in the old fashion...

sonia a. mascaro said...

Very original gate! I never seen it before...

That's very cool! Nice catch!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Mysterious but beautiful door :)

Lois said...

I guess they aren't taking any chances! I do like the yellow door.

Michelle said...

Interesting and I like the wrought iron!

Tanya Breese said...

i like it all!

Beyond the Dog Dish said...

Your giving me ideas - my brick is that colour and I just love yellow! Perhaps..

Randy said...

Nice but it could use a few flowers.

Cloudia said...

Oh I like these a LOT! We city bloggers do have our own types of fences to bring to TEX's party, don't we :-)

Hmmm, I am not sure about the functionality but the iron gates are sure stylish.

Janie said...

How mysterious, and lovely, too. It reminds me of a cloistered convent entrance. Or maybe the owner is paranoid about being robbed?

I like this gates.

Halcyon said...

It looks like an entrance to a church or something to me. I can just imagine a Mother Superior standing there making sure all is safe.

Jeevan said...

It is a common scene here in India where there’s a secured iron gate in front of wooded doors. Excellent compo on the gated door!

Susan Anderson said...

Intriguing bit of redundancy there.

=)

Very pretty setting, and the story behind the doors could be intriguing.
