I’ve developed a fascination for the doorways here in
Cusco. There are so many variations … in colour, in size, in decoration, in their simplicity or splendour. And the question of what’s behind each door is intriguing.
These are just some of the doorways I’ve photographed so far, plus some quotations about doorways that appealed.
