Photographer's Note

House front doors in Chora, Patmos are a very interesting theme. Each has its individual design and colour that sets it apart from every other door in the neighbourhood. Many doors have elaborate door knockers in a great variety of forms: goddesses, wreaths, horses, lions, hands...
A lot of the antique houses of Chora have been bought by people of non_greek nationality. Every owner must obey strict rules concerning the preservation of the town's architectural style. This explains the homogenous white colour of the houses. Doors and door knockers, in a great diversity of designs, forms and colours speak of the owner's style and individuality in a very pleasant, interesting and effective way.

Thanks for viting. A lovely week to everyone
