Having just left the painfully historic 'Anne Frank house' a few doors away, I was in a very thoughtful mood when I came across this particular door in Amsterdam, hanging at the entrance to a neighbouring property.

I couldn't believe my luck, coming across a door in such a colourfully delapidated state, in what is otherwise a very ordered and beautiful city. I just had to take this picture.

Could I or the door have been inspired by Van Gogh?
