Default Doors -- Red

Here are a couple red doors.

The first is at the Portland Episcopal Cathedral.


The second is the parking lot entrance to the former Talbot's clothing store located in the Washington Square Mall in Beaverton, Oregon. Talbot's is no longer there. Another business now occupies the space. However, the red door is still there.

Love the church doors, an interesting design for the hinges.

Save for the nasty shadows in #1 (how dare the sun intrude!) it's a beaut.

There is something about red when used architecturally. It really makes a feature stand out. As has been mentioned, the hinges on the church doors are unique. They almost overpower the door handle in size. Being one who likes symmetry, I'd be tempted to put a door handle on the left side. The ex Talbot's doorway has a nice symmetrical look to it.

I have looked at this photo hundreds of times and still wonder if those really are hinges or just big decorations. Someday, I will go back there and take a closer look.

Thanks all for your kind comments.
