TRAVEL: Doors, why do there have to be doors (Part 1)

Garden door around the town Amalfi, Sorento, Italy

At the age of 21 where most normal guy officially reach physical adulthood, my body stopped from growing at 5’6 tall. By then, I knew I cannot make it as a supermodel like I dreamed of and travel around the world for free. Being just dark, handsome and disappointed, I had to think of something else to do with my life. The door to becoming a supermodel has closed (It was never open for me anyway, I realized that ten years later). Thank god I am actually smart and talented I never knew. Whew!

Ten years later, I have encountered countless doors and windows of opportunities I never thought would open and close for me during my early until late twenties. From desktop publishing to design agency. I’m now a Graphic Designer (wow), but my current company entitled me as the Digital & Creative Lead… because they cannot promote me into something else (that sounds better and more expensive though). I currently work as the in-house designer in a company that requires corporate branding and stuff that will make them on top of the competition. Such serious talent.

Okay, that is too much bragging. I hope that’s a good opening for this post. I tried my best to make sense for this entry. Here below are the images from my close encounter with unique doors from different part of the world.

I own all images in this gallery. But now, the internet owns it too.

I think this was the massive door from Ciragan Palace, Kempinski while I was on my way to Ortakoy, Istanbul, Turkey.
