Merida, Yucatan – I wish I could’ve walked through many of these doors – to explore what lay beyond. Well maybe not the Cirujano Dentista door!Screen Shot 2017-03-24 at 7.17.05 PM

Thursday Doors – December 22, 2016

We recently vacationed in Yucatan Mexico. I got so excited about the variety of doors I told my friends about Thursday Doors, hosted by Norm 2.0, and commenced taking as many door pictures as I could.

I think I will have enough to last several months!dsc_0926

The first night in Yucatan we stayed at Gran Hotel in Merida. The hotel was built in the mid 1800’s. I could have stayed there for the entire week. The classic architecture, old world charm and kind staff members made our stay quite enjoyable.

365 Days of Photos – Day 274

Yesterday I posted photos of the court house in Waxahachie Texas. Tonight I am posting photos of the architectural details of the building. I found these faces quite remarkable.

The terra cotta faces were created at Theodore Beilharz’s stone yard in Dallas Texas. The master stone carver was Harry Herley. The Ellis county Court House located in Waxahachie Texas was built in 1895.
