Hello Helsinki

Some days I just need to take a break from the code questions and check out a really cool door. Luckily, George Everding (and his wife Maureen who suggested that he take the photo for me) saw this door...

Copper Doors

We visited Santa Clara del Cobre, a town known for it's amazing copper work. I didn't find a lot of copper doors, but the pair below is on the entrance to the Museo del Cobre. The doors are wood, with small copper overlays attached which look like they were done by various artisans...

FF: Standard Oil

When Jess Dey found this closer on eBay, I was shocked to see such a beautiful potbelly closer! I've never seen a closer with decorative accents - usually architects want to hide the hardware. As it turns out, this closer from the Standard Oil Building in San Francisco was rescued from the trash heap as a standard closer...

Almudena Cathedral – Madrid, Spain

These beautiful doors are from the Almudena Cathedral in Madrid. Construction on the cathedral began in 1883, but due to the Civil War and other delays, the cathedral was not consecrated for worship until 1993. The extremely ornate bronze doors are the work of sculptor Luis Antonio Sanguino, who began work on them in 2000...

FF: Essaouira, Morocco

And now...for my last post from Morocco, some Fixed-it Friday photos from Essaouira. If you've never visited, it is a beautiful city with an old fort, a busy port, talented wood carvers, a sandy beach, fresh seafood, and the fattest cats in all of Morocco. Oh - and lots of doors that are fighting corrosion from the salt air. Enjoy!

Lock Shopping in Marrakech

This is not the first time I've shopped for locks in Marrakech (here are some photos from the last time), but today I stumbled upon two craftsmen in the haddadine (metalworkers' souk) that made THE MOST AMAZING LOCKS. I bought one of the padlocks so I was able to take lots of photos of one of the shops. Check them out!

More Reader Photos

I'm tied up preparing for Day 2 of COR140 and the rest of the week's events, so here's another batch of reader photos. Thank you to all of the readers who make it a little easier to keep iDigHardware running when my hair is on fire. I just noticed that all of today's photos came from my Allegion brethren, so it's an all-Allegion post!

More from NYC

I'm busy preparing to start my next online Decoded course today, so here's a quick post with some more photos from my trip to New York City. Most of my friends are still wondering why I took so many photos of doors - I did it for YOU! :)

Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle

Today's winner of the 5th-birthday gift card is Dan Droker of CCI Automated Technologies, who sent me some great photos from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. It makes me happy to imagine some of you embarrassing your spouses and kids by taking door photos during family outings. My family has begun to automatically sense when a door piques my interest, and they make themselves scarce. Except the little one who wants to be in every picture...
