Thursday Doors

Standard

Last Saturday I visited St. Anthony’s Greek Orthodox Monastery in Florence, Arizona. I’ll be posting more photos in the next ten days, but I’m thrilled to have several nice doors to post for the challenge this week.

The first is the fairly simple door to St. George’s Chapel.

This is what the innermost doors look like.

Here is a closer photo of the sparkling mosaic over the door. Note also the dimensional brickwork surrounding the door.
