Thursday Doors

I apologise in advance. Yesterday, I had to visit a backstreet camera repair shop in the Old City to get the sensor cleaned on my fixed lens Panasonic LX100. While waiting, I wandered around the eastern part of the walled city with my Canon 6D & 24-105 zoom lens. I have added most of these doors to the post as I will be leaving India soon, and have decided to abandon social media for a while. And I have reached 99% of my free WordPress account.

This is the entrance to a beautiful Jain temple. The idols are on the first floor. There is another temple which is entirely lit by sunlight beamed around the interior with mirrors. I have yet to find it.

These two old gents told me all about their medical problems as they sat outside a boring metal shutter door.

The man in the beige polo shirt wouldn’t budge. I waited a couple of minutes, so I think he really wanted to be in the shot.

There was no door on this barber shop. It was just open to the street. How about having your haircut in the latest style by a barber wearing pyjamas?
