Seeing Life Through Photography

SUNDAY POST: DOOR

The Sunday Post: Door is sponsored by Jakesprinter and you can find related entries at the above link.

I decided to use photos of doors leading into the Nationality Rooms located at the Cathedral Of Learning on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

The Nationality Rooms are a collection of 29 classrooms depicting and donated by the ethnic groups that helped build the city of Pittsburgh. Wikipedia

DOORS AND BEYOND THEM

AUSTRIAN ROOM

 

INDIAN ROOM

 

AFRICAN HERITAGE ROOM

I hope you enjoyed this small presentation of the doors of the Nationality Rooms and beyond.  The photos were taken a couple years ago.  I will be posting the entire set of rooms in a video presentation later in the week.

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!

  1. These are gorgeous photos. 😀

  2. What a great entry you have here Francine the door designs are so eye catcher thanks for sharing this good job 🙂

  3. great choice francine, and what a wonderful idea for the university to incorporate different cultures …too often there is no representation of ‘minority’ groups.

  4. I love those desks in the Indian room, but the door entering into the African American room is my number one choice of these doors. It is gorgeous … a real work of art. That is not saying that the others are not beautiful, as well. The carvings in the African door, though, are so unique, I can’t help but be awed by the door. Thank you so much for sharing these photos, Francine. They are all wonderful.

    • Hi Marcy, A little behind in responding to blogs, hope to catch up by tomorrow. Yes, I love the doors as well. Could not decide which to post. There are some other great carved doors coming up later. Thank you for your comment.

      BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
