Doors and Windows of Antigua

In the streets of Antigua, walls are everywhere. With its narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets, it almost feels like you are constantly walking down an alley in some kind of inverted cityscape. From the streets, almost everything is concealed from public view. However, if you pay close attention to the craftsmanship of  a door or window, you can get a much better idea of what lays hidden on the other side.

Quite a few of the roof tops have these little concrete accessories. Most are purchased second hand and then plopped on top of the roof.

Plants growing on the tile roofs was a common site. As was the crown of thorns on the exterior windowsill.

No longer a hospital I am guessing. This is also one of the only tags (graffiti) I managed to notice.

I wasn't sure if this was a bathroom or a store? Or a store in a bathroom, how awkward...

When I shot this, I didn't realize it was a sundial. As you are walking down the street, there are a lot of little things you don't even notice until you take the time to look at the photos.
