Door 2


A door in Capraia.

Here's the second in my exciting new series: Pictures of Doors and Windows and Other Things Taken on My Various Travels.

This is a door on a fisherman's hut on the haunted isle of Capraia, in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off Tuscany.

Ciaociao.

Doors, and More


Door to the courtyard of the Blue Mosque, Istanbul.


Hello everyone. You may or may not have noticed that I have become the world's worst blogger in recent months, posting on average once a decade. This is because I am deeply immersed in writing the second Tom Knox thriller, tentatively entitled Think of Good Title.

As this state of affairs - i.e. my being pretty damn busy - is gonna persist for some time, I thought instead of posting nothing at all, I'd post a few photos from my travels in recent years.

During my adventures I have taken to capturing photos of doors, and windows, for no apparent reason. So I shall start by posting, occasionally, some of these photos of doors and windows. Then I might post some other photos. Sometimes I might write something. But I can't guarantee it.

How exciting is that?

Anyway, the above photo is of the door to the Blue Mosque, in Istanbul. As, er, the caption indicates. You can click on the photo to enlarge it - it's 5 megapixels.

I took the photo in the Spring when I, erm, visited Istanbul.

I'm just off for a beer now.
