— 35 DOORS IN MALTA — Doors. One of the most common things you’ll see anywhere you travel. Malta and Gozo are no different.
I photographed hundreds of doors during my time there; some were centuries old, others were modern in design. As I wandered the streets in villages large and small, I was intrigued by the door-knockers, lock-plates, and doorknobs.
While each, no doubt, has its own story to tell, I could only guess at the hands that turned a key in the lock, opened the door, and disappeared into the cool sandstone oasis.
I’m returning to Malta and Gozo in March 2022. My home will be Mgarr Harbor on Gozo, just steps from the ferry to Malta. I’ll be photographing more doors while I’m there for 20-days.
These doors and ornaments are among some of my favorite. ~Mary

These photos are gorgeous and fascinating. I’m sure behind every unique door there’s an equally interesting story.
Thank you, Terry. I felt the same way. Many of the doors were in use; others had been closed for years. So intriguing. 🙂
What an eye you have! Wonderful images.
Why is it that there is so much beauty in Malta–and why don’t people cultivate it more in the US? Sometimes I think America suffers from beauty deficit disorder–not enough appreciation for how important beauty is, almost a distrust or disdain for it. And yet, so fundamental to being a human.
Malta is a haven for beautiful doors and door knockers 💫
