Driving up the coast of Oman from Shannah to Sur in the aftermath of a major storm early May, the small towns along the coastal road are weatherbeaten, fishing towns.
Many hundreds of miles from main centres, (Muscat is an 8-hour drive from here) the pace of life is slow and traditional.
Traditionally doors in Oman are of the metal type, with simple embellishments, check out the heart door, but occasionally you get a bit of variety….
I spend a lot of time being a car photographer on these long journeys, especially in these lands, but occasionally I get spotted!
Plenty of gazebo’s scattered along the coastline, for shade, no doors though!
The weather isn’t kind to wooden doors in this region….
Green shutters to lock up the shop seem to be the standard design….
Typical small town shops in the remoter parts of coastal Oman…suspect there is a door shop close churning out the standard design!
I loved these odd little doors and surround, glad I caught it before the elements do….
Great wooden doors in that archway….
More green doors, the place to hang out… and yes, I was spotted!
A long-abandoned villa, left to the elements, but check out the over-door design…an influence from where? …..
Well, I just loved these ones, talk about wearing your heart on your gate ( door) !!!
Yup, spotted, but they were pretty cheerful over the long lens out of the car window!
