(M) Doors & Windows

The almost invisible Door of the Marstall theatre

As I mentioned in one of my previous article, I was in Munich on that day. It was on my way from the Residenz to the „Englischer Garten“, along the Marstall theatre. It seems, it is one of the backdoors to the Marstall theatre. Hopefully the fire-brigade will find this door in the night, when it is dark and when they are in a hurry …

Rain in Winter

This picture has been in Munich in Winter 2020 – well, it wasn’t a real winter. It was more than in autum: rain and sunshine, but colder than in summer. I thought, the the shutter time was short enough, that the rain is not visible on the picture – well I was wrong.

The better Composition

Aim was, to take a picture of the three windows and the 2 doors. Unfortunatelly, the small lorry – the transporter for the beer – was in in front of the building. It was clear, that the small lorry is about to leave … soon. Well, after 10 minutes, the man in the lorry spent his time to do some conversation over the smartphone. Additional 10 minutes later, the same situation. After 30 Minutes, the lady by my side got a nervous. So, I took the picture – and finally I think it is the better composing.

The real broken Window Shutter

An interesting house. It is very nicely tiled and the tiles are also in a very good condition, although they have fallen off here and there. However, the shutter is then unfortunately already broken. Nevertheless an interesting house.

The broken Window Shutter

An old house at the port in Lisbon, where I saw this strange window shutter. It looks like it’s broken. However, it appears the shutter is supposed to be.

The window shutter

Even the street signs in Portugal, here a house in Lisbon, are wonderfully designed.

The Door in the old Bath

The old bath in Karsbad. A door to a room where the rich people changed their clothes to enjoy the spa day.

The tiled Wall

Typical for Portugal and Lisbon: The tiled outer walls of the houses.

A place in the backyard to linger

Well, where can you find this kind of place? – Only in France or Greece! Lovely designed, with the books, the dried flowers, the different chairs which match wonderful, the vintage style of the window shutter, oh no it is not vintage style, it is real. A really lovely place to stay.

One last of its kind: a chewing-gum machine

Seen in Schrobenhausen in 2017. Honestly, it is hard to say that, but the end of this machines has already begun … no, the era of chewing-gum machines is close to the end. I remember, when I was young, my mother sometimes gave me „10 Pfennig“ – the money before the Euro. „10 Pfennig“ is more or less 5 EuroCent. I walked to the machine, plugin the 10 Pfennig from above, twisted the black grip … and mostly a chewing-gum came out, sometimes one of this small little gimmicks. Well, when I was young … 45 years ago …

The closed Door of the Broken House

The front wall of the house, which is the last remaining piece of a whole house. The rest of the house no longer exists. The doors are still standing and have been closed cleanly.

The Small Rusty Balkony

A small rusty balkony somewhere on La Gomera. A small rusty balkony somewhere on La Gomera. Overall I was phaszinated of the colors and the idea having a balkony … under any circumsdances.

The Window in Venice

Well, on of my first windows, that I took very consciously. It is not the very first one, but one of the first windows, where I spent a bit more time to take the photo and the very first photo about doors and windows, I printed on my own large-format printer.

The Historical Mintage

A half open door … how much money has already been carried through the door … An old mint in Tuscany, which is now represented by a museum.
