About three times a week I walk from Palermo to Recoleta to go to my yoga class. Recoleta is a beautiful neighborhood with gorgeous French style buildings and I can wander around the streets there for hours looking up at ornate balconies and windows with long skinny shutters.
I usually take a residential street named Juncal because it’s quieter and nicer than the bigger avenues with all the buses and cars. Today I happened to have my camera with me so I took photos of what I came across on Juncal, but mostly of doors and door knobs. I am fascinated by all the giant doors in Buenos Aires.
Each building has a unique door that matches the style of the building; some are large and majestic, some are dainty and cute, some are quite elegant, some are heavy and masculine. I love that they all require traditional keys to open, even the one at my modern apartment building. I have yet to see the same set of doors twice.
