A few of my all-time favourites, from almost four years of shooting doors and storefronts in Malta. As of June 2019, they are all still standing… so far.

To find my bearings, I walked… and I walked. It’s the only way that I know to get a real sense of any place I’ve ever landed in. So, leaving the vast concrete and glass apartment complex, perched on a peninsula, I turned down one narrow side-street after another – off the main drag of Sliema – and the true architectural beauty of Malta began to reveal itself… Helen Jones-Florio / Times of Malta
O.K. … ‘Binett’s Library’ is not exactly in Valletta… but, look at what a beauty it is!
This thing I have for doors never seems to abate, wherever I find myself. For daily photo updates, follow me on Instagram @doors_facades_florio.
Photography prints are available from helenjonesflorio.com online gallery.

Great post 🙂
Thank you 🙂 HJF
No problem 🙂 check out my blog when you get the chance 😄
Thanks so much for your thoughtful words… many of the doors I have photographed have, sadly, already disappeared (I have many before and after photos – maybe that’s the next blog post). It seems most developers don’t want to spend the money to restore many of the older places.
