Doors. One of the most common things you’ll see anywhere you travel. Malta and Gozo are no different.
I photographed hundreds of doors during my time there; some were centuries old, others were modern in design. As I wandered the streets in villages large and small, I was intrigued by the door-knockers, lock-plates, and doorknobs.
