Doors and windows

I love the doors and windows of traditional houses and Galaxidi has some real beauties. So, here's a selection of some of the ones I photographed.



 
This house has not been restored, but is in not too bad a state.
 

 


I love the door and the brick detail above.



 
Lovely wooden shutters
 
 


 
and the garden gate.
 
 
 

 
Beautiful stonework, wonky steps, simple door and lovely ironwork on top.
 
 
 

 
Similar in style but more elaborate
 
 
 

 
Similar brickwork on top of this window, loved the hinges
 
 


'Less is more', definitely applies here



 
Wonky steps again, the ironwork so attractive in its simplicity
 
 

 

This gate is modern





the cats on either side on the posts are very unusual



 looking closer




Same style as the previous ones, but this house has been recently restored




 
window of the same house.
 

 
 


Elaborate plaster work in this much more prosperous house, a hotel now





I liked the simplicity of this plasterwork




looking closer






I also find the ironwork of some balconies very pleasing






decoration beneath a balcony is unusual.
