Thursday Doors 28 May • Short Doors

My previous posts mainly featured doors of a normal height, i.e. 2 to 2.10 meters, or some 6.6 – 6.9 foot. While the below doors may seem normal at first glance, they stand barely 1.80 meters or 5.9 foot tall. Short enough to give you a blinding headache if you’re not careful.
