Thursday doors…German doors #1, Staufen im Breisgau

The last time I was in northeast France visiting my s-i-l, we decided to leave France for a short while, driving across the border to Germany and the picturesque town of Staufen im Breisgau.  Although the rain was beating down when we arrived, we partook of a delicious lunch, (food and drink make everything better), then walked through the streets, going into shops and enjoying being tourists. I took a number of door photos there, before even knowing about this challenge of Norm’s.  The weather wasn’t very good, although the rain did stop after lunch, but we had a great time in the shadow of the local castle and its vineyards.  We ended the day in a pastry shop, the perfect finish to a lovely get-away.

(“Briefe” means “letters.”)

    Brief is the word we use in Afrikaans!

    This is such a nice weathered old door. I like doors with mail slots. I don’t know why but they add something interesting to the door. Nice job on the photo.

    Lots of character on this one. I just love the decorative latticework in the glass panes. Lovely find 🙂

    Beautiful door! I love a weathered door, although my husband does not share my taste — if the door is ours!

    That’s a coincidence, my doors this week are also German!
