As we wandered in the old part of Philadelphia, we spotted all sorts of doors and buildings worth photographing.  One such duo is the Italian Consulate, housed in a building of old world charm and detail.   Sometimes the effect of a door is more than just the door itself.  The surroundings can make it even more special, as in this instance.

I like the attractive simplicity of the doors and the restrained beauty of the details around them.  I also managed to avoid a selfie.

Where can you find the Consulate?  Within view of Independence Hall.

    That is a beautiful entrance. We don’t mind the selfies, just so you know.

    I like the reflections, and I love that arched ceiling.

    What wonderful pictures! That reflection is priceless! I’m sorry to miss a doorfie, though. 🙂

  5. It almost reminds me of the atrium to a church. But wonderful doors.

  6. What a beautiful entrance. Very clever of you to capture the reflection of Independence Hall, Janet, and manage to avoid a selfie. 🙂

    I love the filigree above the doors. Looks like a border I would use on one of my scrapbooking pages.

    Simple doors but perfectly elegant and very much appropriate for their purpose. Nice find Janet 🙂

    • It’s hard not to find photograph-able doors in Philly, Norm, at least in the city itself. I imagine the suburbs are more like other places, but there are so many older buildings/homes/row houses that it’s a door-lovers joy.
