Behind Doors of Other Colors

You may remember the little country house with the bright red door I posted recently. On my runs through the countryside I have noticed things I never noticed before I started photographing everything. For example, I've noticed that there are lots of these little houses with a wide variety of door colors...
Same house...different doors...

The pink door...
The green door...

This one looks like it was painted with the same batch of paint they use in town for all the window shutters!

Tiny little houses with painted doors! They look so small, how big are they?

valeria said...

Is that considered "annesso agricolo"? For the tools?

Nice photo. It is different.

Love the pastel colors on the doors. They look so different from the doors we see in NYC.

Are these small structures actually inhabited? They don't look like they have much space.

Surprising to see all these small country houses, all more or less similar (I also looked on the "red door" one.) Are they close to each other? Were they built for something else and special?

Looks like you have a beautiful jogging route! I enjoy jogging along the coast, but there can be a lot of traffic. Do you get much traffic along these little houses?

And thanks for checking out my blog, too. Yes, I am new at this but love seeing what other expats are experiencing in So. Italy.

It's amazing the things we see for the 1st time(?), when we start shooting for the CDP blog! :-)
Those are some really peculiar little houses!

pj - I think they're no more than 15 sq. meters

niamh & Valeria & Kate - they are for the storage of agricultural tools and supplies. They are not lived in.

Peter - they are not right next to each other, but all within a few kilometers of each other, along my jogging route. But, they can be found throughout the countryside all over this area.

Lost in Sicily - my jogging route is not bad...once I get past the area where they illegally dump garbage...

jm - that is so true!

ming & Abraham - thank you!

Isn't it wonderful how the camera teaches you to notice what you might not otherwise see?
