Weekly Photo Challenge: BLUE (2)

Photo by Frank Bruder

On a side street just a block away from the Jardin in the centro of San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico, you will find these blue doors. They are often locked, looking like they’ve stood that way since the colonial city’s founding in the 18th century. But don’t be discouraged —

Come in the morning and you will find, behind them, a dazzling assortment of Mexican pastries, ranging from sweet to too-sweet (with a couple of savories for contrast), all fresh from the oven of this outrageous panadería. When they run out, they run out, and the blue doors are locked for the day. So don’t be late!

Oh, its name? The Blue Door Bakery, what else?

    Wonderful colour and texture in that shot! I doubt I’ll get to see them in real life, though..

  4. At first glance the blue doors made me happy; until I read your commentary. Now the blue doors make me blue. Ah me. 😦

  9. I can imagine the dreadful disappointment of finding them locked. I’d make sure I got there nice and early. Lovely!

  10. Wow, this is really intense… I’d love to own something in that exact shade.

  11. LOL love the name! But aw, I would hate to see the blue doors close on me.

  12. What a nice, different take on the challenge!

  13. Great post, maybe we’ll see what’s inside soon too? I’m a sucker for pastries.

      Ah no, Shannon —
      The Blue Doors are long ago and far away —
      (But here in Northampton MA we can get delicious fresh croissants, so I shouldn’t complain!)
