Thursday doors – 15 December 2022

Doors 203 – My favourite doors of 2022 – a review

It is customary on the last Thursday before the Christmas break to present a selection of favourite doors from the last year. This is my selection, and I had some real beauties to choose from this year. I hope you enjoy them this second time round. I look forward to seeing other Thursday door selections too.

So that’s it for the year. 2022 has been a very difficult year for so many reasons. I guess it is fitting that the final pair of doors in blue and yellow represent the colours of a country that I hadn’t given much consideration before dictator Putin’s “special operation” and invasion this year. I dedicate this gallery of doors to the people of Ukraine, keeping them very much in my thoughts this Christmas.

May I take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy holiday season, and Christmas. See you all on the other side.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.

  1. These are wonderful doors, Steve. I’m having a hard time choosing a favorite, but that green hut at the top is such a lovely scene, I can’t really put any other photo ahead of it.

    Thanks for your support during the year, for thinking about doors as you travel and for sharing some very interesting buildings and doors with us. Merry Christmas, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season as you roll up and into 2023!
