A running and rather odd fascination with front doors and gates which can't really be explained has meant that I can't resist documenting them wherever I go.
Here in Tulum, if you're lucky to be living next to the beach, your front gate (roadside) is often a fortified barrier of wood or bamboo, decorative but able to withstand intruders. Meanwhile the 'back gate' leads on to the fine white sand and the turquoise sea below. I love the washed out, bleached effect the wood takes on as it soaks up the heat, sun and sea spray. Simple in design, the gates seem to beckon you in with their design. Welcoming and friendly - completely indicative of the Mexican people themselves.
