Thursday doors – 1 October 2020

Doors 122 – busy week doors, a bit of recycling

I am totally maxed out at work at the moment, so this will be short and sweet. Some more graffiti/street art doors from my archive. I am beginning to fret about what will happen when I have exhausted my archive.

Enjoy:

Thursday doors – 24 September 2020

Doors 121 – A sprinkling of graffiti doors

This week I am attempting to write Thursday Doors on a Thursday. You wouldn’t think that it would be too difficult, I mean there is a clue in the title, but last week I goofed and posted Thursday Doors on a Friday. Time has got the better of me once again and I am resorting to my large archive of street/graffiti art photographs to see if I can find doorsy ones. Here are a few that were originally posted in 2019:

It wont be too long before I run out of these archive shots, so I really do need to get out and find a few more doors locally. Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you are doing.

Thursday doors – 17 September 2020

Doors 120 – Some Cheltenham doors (posted a day late)

It has been a month since I last posted Thursday doors and like the idiot I am, I missed this Thursday for my comeback, so here is my offering a day (and a month) late.

I took these pictures on a trip to Cheltenham for the annual Paint Festival hosted there a couple of weekends ago. I can’t remember the last time I posted some newly photographed doors rather than the archive graffiti ones I have been posting lately, so I hope you enjoy them.

So there we have it, I managed to get myself back into the swing of things, albeit a day late. Expect more archive pictures next week, unless I get myself out for a walk somewhere.

Thursday doors – 6 August 2020

Doors 118 – more archive doors

I still haven’t been out much lately so there aren’t too many new doors to write home about, although these little doors in a street nearby caught my eye. The great thing about people having to stay at home is that they get creative.

These little doors on the front garden wall of a family home are unlikely to have ever happened in normal circumstances. They made me laugh.

So another week passes us by in this ‘groundhog day’ existence, but to break the mould, I am taking a few days off work next week to recharge the batteries, and you just never know I might get to photograph a few more new doors. Whatever you are up to, I wish you a great week.

Wow, a really busy week for me with the rest of my team all away on their hols and only me to man the fort. So a quick rummage around in my archives it will have to be this week.

Doors 116 – Some random Bristol doors from lock down walks

I have taken a day off work today and so am able to spend a little bit of time sorting out some new doors for you. This is a selection of doors from all around North Bristol from the long dog walks I took during the lock down days.

I am constantly reminded of what strange times we live in that we have developed a whole new language around the coronavirus epidemic, and that we will reference world history in terms of pre-Covid and post-Covid. I find it all very unsettling.

Anyhow – on to the doors. I hope you enjoy them.

So, that’ll be it for another week.  I expect I’ll revert to my graffiti door archive next week, but we’ll have to wait and see. Take care wherever you are and have a great weekend.

Doors 115 – Street art doors are where it’s at!

I have been struggling to photograph new doors recently, I think that escaping the tiny area I have existed in during lock down has definitely contributed to this sorry state of affairs. I hoped all this might change with a short trip to Cornwall last weekend fishing with my son, but we didn’t visit any towns or villages, just fishing marks on the south coast.

The upshot… more archive street art doors, most never seen on Thursday doors before. Enjoy…

There is no end to my busy period, I rarely seem to have time to come up for air. I am writig this when I should be tucked up in bed.
