Though most of Peru is not, by climate, a tropical country, the Spaniards, when they came to Peru, seem to have brought with them houses, in cities, where often all you see at street level is a wall, and a door. The door may show some of the quality of the house behind it, often a central common area surrounded by rooms, not dissimilar to what we see surrounding the Mediterranean, and which my wife and I saw in abundance in Tunisia a year later. Interesting, many of the doors are blue. These buildings, and doors are in Urabamba, in the Sacred Valley, between Pisac to the South and Olantaytumbo and further up, Macchu PIcchu to the North.

Your exposure and the detail you have achieved in all these shots is spot on. If I was to choose I would say V1 takes my fancy ...John

The doors in direct contrast to the derelict area suggest something intriguing within-- I, for one, am not used to seeing fortified living areas---something to think about---
excellent reportage!

Lovely old doors, particularly V1 and V2, but really like the colour combination in V3.

Very photogenic doors, especially V1 andV2.
Not unlike doors in Lanzerote where the island's famous architect ordained that all doors be painted green or blue.
Also I saw lots of wonderful doors in Santorini last year.
The craftmanship is be admired.
