Thursday doors – 7 May 2020

Doors 105 – Zombies are coming

I am a little pressed for time this week, so here are a couple of doors I photographed over the last two days during my brief walks escaping from lock down.

I really struggle with social distancing, it feels so unnatural and uncomfortable. Crossing into the middle of the road to avoid oncoming pedestrians on the pavement Β feels embarrassing, almost insulting, but I guess we all have to do it. I am lucky that it is impacts like this that have most affected me so far, they are trivial compared to the impacts on others.

The point being that my walks are not linear but rather they are zig zaggy and the upshot is I do walk to places I might not have walked before and get to see interesting things.

The first door is up some steps, that look like they could do with a bit of repair work. Not a house for people with mobility problems. The wall on the left of the steps has a great warning to us all… zombies are coming.

The second door isn’t really a door, it is more like a window, both physically and metaphorically. Lock down has certainly led to a surge in creativity, with gardening and baking topping the charts, but a local family (I am guessing) have made this brilliant model of a home in lock down. Take time to look at it and see what it tells you about the family. I think this is lovely and a great capture of life in the time of Coronavirus.

That’s it for another week. Look after yourselves.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors and you ought to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

  1. We’ve had it easy here in the West Country considering everything but I think when lockdown eases that’s when the beginning of the second wave might well start.

    As for this post . . .
    The first door is definitely not Mobility friendly lol but am loving the daisies leading up to the door and that second piece is quite incredible and very well done indeed . . . Good spot

  2. What great finds, especially that model. I think the person with the yellow door (great color, BTW) should be glad they don’t live where there’s lots of snow and ice! As for the zombies, I’m not too worried. πŸ™‚
