I am rushing to get this Thursday Door prepared and uploaded in time.  I went back in time (2 years) to find an interesting door image in San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy when we had an opportunity to take a day tour there.

The Wikipedia Information says, “San Gimignano (Italian pronunciation: [san dʒimiɲˈɲaːno]) is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. Known as the Town of Fine Towers, San Gimignano is famous for its medieval architecture, unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its tower houses,[1]which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls form “an unforgettable skyline”.[2] Within the walls, the well-preserved buildings include notable examples of both Romanesque and Gothic architecture, with outstanding examples of secular buildings as well as churches. The Palazzo Comunale, the Collegiate Church and Church of Sant’ Agostino contain frescos, including cycles dating from the 14th and 15th centuries.[2] The “Historic Centre of San Gimignano”, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[2] The town also is known for the saffron, the Golden Ham and its white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, produced from the ancient variety of Vernaccia grape which is grown on the sandstone hillsides of the area.[3][4]“.  More information can be found here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Gimignano

I was experimenting with my photo software for last week’s birding shoot with Deborah but we were outdoors and didn’t find any doors to shoot.  So the photo I selected is 1 shot but processed from different points of view.  Hope you like it.

First image is the cropped door:

San Gimignano is a grest place to visit.  Great scenery for photography and doors.

Gotta end here to post the door.

Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks to Norm 2.0 for his Thursday Doors blog.  For more blogs and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.

P.S. Missed the Thursday Doors upload deadline (again) by mere seconds.  Guess only my followers get to see this post.
