Photo Hunt - Door

This is the door between the outdoor and indoor patio area of Doris Duke's (daughter of the founder of Duke University) house on Oahu. During her honeymoon she fell in love with Moorish and middle eastern architecture and design so when she built her dream home in Hawaii it was done in that style. This patio is a walled garden and totally private. The wrought iron doorway permits the ocean breezes to flow into the house.
