God mogen kjekken :-) kobla meg rett og slett på her nå, kun for å nå deg faktisk :-)) i full fart på vei til jobb snart, men men min kjære Rune!!!

Jeg har lyst på nytt kamerahus, wræææææ.... også har det seg sånn da vettu at tannlegen min mener jeg skulle hatt min førse krone i kjeften, en tann er i ferd med å havarere etter en tannlege som var litt vel ivrig på borring først på 80 tallet :-((( penger blir nok ikke til begge deler, sukk.... `Kjøp brukt kamera, let på nettet` sa mannen her trøstende, men :-) he he min gode venn, saken er vel heller at en kunne tenkt seg en brukt krone og NYTT kamerahus, så om :-)))) du nå kommer over en pent brukt jeksel..., hvet du hvor den skal sendes!!!!!

Fine bilder fra Hellas ja du, skjønner i grunn ikke helt hva som tiltrekker så med stein, men noe gjør det faktisk med meg, synes det er så fasinerende, så varig!!! på en måte :-)

Nei, styrt på jobb, treg i dag ja, huff.

Klem i farta

TUI-Wolters eller Star Tours som vi sier her hjemme fikk en flott reklameblogg i dag.

Heges fotoblogg said...

Kjekt å komme hit igjen Rune og se bildene dine :) Litt annnerledes porter der enn her ja. Fine bilder som vanlig.

Liker forresten veldig godt tittelbildet ditt!

Ser du har satt døren på gløtt her. Og man føler seg virkelig velkommen med slike utsmykninger og pynt ved inngangspartiet. Virkelig flott!

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Veldig fine porter og inngangsportaler du har funnet der Rune, det blir noe eget ved det når man kan gå inne lsike steder :)

Ha en fin dag, her har regnet kommet tilbake etter endags pause.

Reader Wil said...

Great Greek gates! I like them all! Thanks for your visit to my Gouda! Have a great day!

EG Wow said...

I like all these gates, Rune. They all have character and a sense of history behind them.

Malyss said...

All of them are inviting, as well for the feet as for imagination..
I like the blue one very much, maybe because we can only guess what's behind...

PS: I hope you don't think that all people living in Nice are millionaires.. you should be highly disappointed! :)

These Greek Gates are great. I love the variety and the old stone is gorgeous.

Jedediah said...

Beautiful. The first one is my favourite, it's like a magical garden is hiding behind it.

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

I love the peak behind the open door.

Roger Owen Green said...

LOVELY.

I SHOULD note that you ABCW link points to your F post, not your G one.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you! - ROG

VALKYRIEN said...

Veldig fine porter. Gamle og ærverdige som pirrer lysten til å se hva som er innenfor! :)

Annelie said...

Love your pictures, and I love Greece!

MorningAJ said...

Interesting collection. I like the blue ones.

Sylvia K said...

Love your photos -- which isn't unusual, but particularly these today because I love Greece and Crete and wish I could go back and visit again! The blue gate is lovely, but the other two are my favorites! Enjoy the rest of your week, Rune!

Great gates! They're all wonderful but I like the first one best, with the top that opens.

What glorious gates! I love them all! Colorful, robust and decidedly glamorous.

Paula Scott said...

Such beauty! These are all breathtaking! Your images are such nice invitations to go through those gates to what lies beyond.

GAWO said...

Beklager Anne, men jeg må le av kommentaren din til Rune. Og Rune, har du vært på posten med levering allerede?

Fine porter du har funnet fram til. Den første porten så innbydende ut, de andre var litt mer "avvisende". Men fine var de alle.

Spiller ingen rolle at du reklamerer for Star Tour, når du gir oss dette vakre synet.

Herlige bilder fra Kreta, men som du sikkert har lagt merke til så er jeg trofast mot Spania. Jeg har vært på Kreta, men uheldigvis et år det var så fryktelig varmt i juli.

Ha fortsatt en fin kveld!

Beautiful gates! My own is sagging and needs to be replaced.

photowannabe said...

I'm glad you were able to fix your post. Now I can see the lovely gates. they are so colorful and a wonerful variety.

Life with Kaishon said...

Wow. How pretty. Those are some very gorgeous gates. I love these images. As always, it is a treat to come to visit you on Wednesday. An absolute treat!

ChrisJ said...

I should keep these gateways in mind for when I next add to my collection of gateways in my paintings. Trouble is I have so many picture I want to do.... These are very attractive and intriguing. I always want to know what's behind them.

Vernz said...

how many people have passed through this awesome gate? just wondering ... lovely...

I hope you can drop by
My ABC Wednesday here
And HERE TOO

Interesting look at who can afford what. The photos are very nice of the three gates. I just realized they are all set in stone walls. It is a nice post. I enjoyed my look and visit.

I wanted to thank you for visiting one of my blogs and for the comment you made about the ambient lighting on the mellow wood of another time, in Bear's Mill. I did respond there to your comment with the following comment...

"Inside old buildings is a challenge sometimes and the Canon digital camera I use is pretty good about capturing what is there. As you noted, ambient light makes the perspective seem more alive and it helps if the focus is right too."

Thanks for your visit.

What beautiful gateways my friend.

Ken Mac said...

Nydia said...

I'm drooling at these beautiful gateways... The mistery they evoke!

Kisses from Nydia.

I love photographing doorways and these are good. The composition and angle of the door in the first photo is outstanding
