40 Cool, Quirky and Colourful Mexican Doors and Windows

I’ve always had a weird thing for taking photos of colourful walls, quirky doors and interesting windows (bonus points if those walls, doors and windows are covered in street art), and it seems like other people do too.

In fact, a few months back now, I stumbled across this post about the beautiful doors and windows of Penang, Malaysia by Brogan Abroad, and was hit with totally unrelated inspiration for a 100% unique piece of my own.

However, even though I’m the proud owner of a vast archive of door and window photos I pretty much can’t use for anything else, ever, I haven’t been everywhere (boo).

So, I pulled some strings (read: begged for photos on Facebook) and got some amazing submissions from other readers, bloggers and residents which have really helped this post not just be a collection of my shitty photography. Thank me later.

      Of course! I saw your post AGES ago and it’s taken me so long to get this post out, but yours was 100% the inspo. How could I not give you credit?!
