A Work in Progress – Neapolis

Those familiar with my blog know I have a thing for doors, abandoned buildings, and the interesting colors and textures that accompany them. Travel for me isn’t just about seeing major attractions, it’s also about paying attention to the subtle nuances of a place. It’s about finding beauty in the ordinary.

While visiting one of our homes away from home in Greece, Neapolis, I came across this work-in-progress renovation. Although it has a long way to go before an actual door is in place, I rather like the temporary door of brick, boards, and soft-teal netting. How about you?

  1. That’s a great picture and a fine door (for the moment). I have been living with a work in progress all summer as we renovate my garage. You do what you have to do to keep stuff out (or in).

    I like that your travel includes the off-the-path spots.

    1. Thanks, Dan. You definitely have plenty of experience with renovations! The owner of this house has done a fine job of keeping people out with that pile of bricks. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy our off-the-path adventures.

  2. I’m sure there’s more to this than meets the eye because I’d have to guess that it would take less time and a LOT less effort to actually install a new door rather than block the opening with blocks. Hmmm…. 🙂

    1. Really good point. We plan to stop by the house next year to see if a door replaced the bricks or if it remains “as is.” The house looked like a total gut job so I’m guessing the owners wanted to keep people and prying eyes out.

  3. There should be a “smile” button as an option along with “like”. I love what you say about travel – seeing beauty in the ordinary. Great germinal door: a door about to be, just at the point of inception.

    1. A “smile” button would be a nice addition to WP. There have been many times that button would have come in handy. I’m glad you connected to what I said about travel. Greece is a fabulous place to find beauty in the ordinary.
      I like your description of the WIP door image – “germinal door.” It’s perfect.
