Zanzibar. Old Stone Town. A Zanzibar Door. 201208

Zanzibar. Old Stone Town. A Zanzibar Door. 201208 

The Sunday Challenge ( 22 March '15): DOORS
.... and not the group! get in close(ish) be careful if you are using someone else's front door...easy~peasy ...... and NO urking!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Old Stone Town, including this very typical old Zanzibar Doors are part of the
UNESCO World Heritage .
Original old doors were given such a number (here 496 !) . They are listed in a special register.


Just when I pushed the shutter release, this father with his kid crossed my way
..... so I got a mishap, but a nice piece of "street photography" too.

Meral Alkim, Ghislaine, Marie-claire Gallet, Claudine Gaulier-Denis and 49 other people have particularly liked this photo

... it's such a pity ...... sorry to say that: it's muslim country ....
means: the women are working hard, all day ....
but the men: loll around all the day. Nobody is doing something to save this doors ( and more).

Only a small part of inhabitants, minority from India, immigrated in 19. century, is active caring for this outstanding arquitecture.

( not to forget: the family of great Freddie Mercury belongs to this minority. And Freddie itself was born in Stone Town Zanzibar in 1946, his civil name: Farrokh Bulsara).

Have a fine Sunday,
greets from cold, sunny Berlin,

Genau im richtigen Moment abgedrückt. Tolle Streetaufnahme. Die Türe ist sicher auch fotogen, aber ohne die beiden flitzer nur halb so interessant.

Hey, well done, the focus is clearly on the door and you managed to avoid the documentary photograph. Nice color touches also

Oh now this is is full of charm, the lovely albeit decaying door and building, so rich in history with it's intricate carvings or painted decoration (?) around the door. The blur and sharpness of the background present a lovely treat for the eyes. :)
