I love capturing doors and windows. I had a friend describe windows as the "eyes" of the building to me once. If that's the case, then doors are the expressive mouth. I love to wander the back streets and alleys of an old town, looking at the doors and windows. Viewing them overall, the doors can give a sense of the personality of the community, yet viewed individually each door has its own personal style. Color, care, decoration... even what surrounds the door can give you clues to the people who live behind it.
This image from shutterbug1018 (barbarac) shouts of an outgoing personality. Someone put a lot of themselves into creating this wonderful door scene, it speaks of a creative spirit I would love to meet.
What does your front door say about you?
