A typical wooden door in old Bukhara.

Next to the door you can just see how on of the foundation there’s a thick wooden beam carrying the actual wall: this construction helps to make the building earthquake-proof (to an extent, at least).

Taken in Bukhara, Uzbekistan 2009
Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1

I have two passions: travel and photography – and these are often combined. Though even in my own city I often have a camera with me!

When I am not actually taking photographs or working on photographs, you may find me busy programming or otherwise working on my websites.

    Nice work the blue really adds that little extra

  • Thank you Alan!

    That particular color of blue is often used in Bukhara (and, I should say, throughout Central Asia).

    Great shot! The doors and wall are so stark, yet I imagine they hold many untold stories.

  • Yes, there are many doors with stories in Bukhara…
    Thank you for your kind comments, Brian!
