Crooked Orange Door

Jeddah's humble beginnings as a small fishing village on the Red Sea more than 1400 years ago are sometimes forgotten with all the frenetically paced construction and changing dynamics of the city. Many of the buildings of Al Balad are cracked and crumbling but are still home to many of the city's poor.  Part of the charm and enchantment of Al Balad are its flaws, like this crooked doorway.

It certainly does have character.

Not sure what is crooked. The main door looks ok, the arch above the door looks crooked and the walls of the building don't seem too vertical either.
