I’m going to drift in a different direction this week. As I was looking through my photos trying to chose some doors, I discovered that I had a few that could only fit into the category of *odd*.
I found this short Hobbit-sized door on a windmill on Öland across from Kalmar, Sweden. I stand somewhat less than 5’4″ / 162cm and I needed to duck my head entering the windmill.
What really caught my eye though was the arched doorway, but with a rectangular door … until I noticed the *cutout* made in the door to fit into the archway.
…. then there is the angled door handle. Is it just me or does that make more sense ergonomically?
I found this door in a seafood restaurant in Toronto. I really liked the unusual door handle … but then I noticed the sign.
Puzzled, I opened and closed the door a number of times trying to figure out why it needed to be handled gently, especially since the men’s room did not have a similar sign.
I left with the mystery unsolved.
Speaking of signs, this one was found on an otherwise ordinary apartment door while I was visiting a friend. It appealed to my inner-adolescent.
