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.

Doors 117 – back to the old graffiti doors from my archives

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.

Thursday doors – 16 July 2020

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…

Doors 114 – More street art doors

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. To make things easier for me until I get a bit of a break I have once again plundered my archives for some more street art/graffiti doors, first published in 2018. Enjoy…

Doors 113 – yep, you guessed it, some more archive street art doors.

I’ll not bore you with excuses. I’ve not had the time to photograph or prepare any new doors for you once again. I have had just about enough time to search out some I prepared earlier… much earlier – these ones first published in 2017/18:

Thursday doors – 18 June 2020

Doors 111 – Lock down walk doors

It should come as a rather refreshing change that this week’s doors are not from my street art archives, but doors I photographed during lock down on my walks with the dog. I know that the street art doors are popular, and will return to them in due course.

This week’s selection of doors are mainly from the Montpelier and St Werburghs area on what were sleepy streets back in March, but have now resumed almost normal levels of traffic.

Thursday doors – 11 June 2020

Doors 110 – even more graffiti/street art doors (groan…)

I promise that I will get back to some ordinary doors soon, but I am rather enjoying my archive graffiti doors at the moment so might persist just for a couple more weeks if that is ok with you.

In my last Thursday doors post I think I had broken into 2017, so I will kick off there. Enjoy…

Thursday Doors – 4 June 2020

Doors 109 – yet more graffiti/street art doors (bear with me…)

Is it really the fourth of June already? Is it really 2020? What happened to the last five decades? Time seems to be accelerating with every moment that passes at a time in my life when I would rather like it to slow down, perhaps even go in reverse.

Very busy at work at the moment so this is what you are getting – doors from 2016/17:

I realise that three of these are shutters, but shutters are kind of doors too aren’t they? The last picture is the shop and home belonging to the Artist Alex Lucas, which she decorated herself. Over the last week or two she has been making good use of the current lock down restrictions and re-painted the whole thing. One for my street art posts fairly soon I think.

May I wish you all a very happy week.
