For Norm’s Thursday Doors are these Portico Doors Phenomena. I guess many cities have them. I found these when walking the dog in my hometown the Hague. According to Wikipedia, this kind of architecture was developed to give shelter to the elements. I do believe however there were economic forces at play at the time.
They do present you with the opportunity though to cram 5 doors in a portrait sized shot.
This way, 6 doors fit in a portrait sized picture without a problem. Please note that the doors to the souterrains are different from the sets of twin doors giving access to the main house.
Corner houses do hardly pose a problem to this kind of architecture, as the 2 photos below show.
Lastly, portico’s don’t always give access to s souterrain or basement.
As said, I shot these Portico Doors Phenomena within a 20 minute walk..
For next week, I’ve found some more twin doors…
