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:

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.

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 112 – Back to some archive street/graffiti art doors

Another extraordinarily busy week for me, and limited time to pull together new doors, so it is another retrospective of street art doors (one or two of which have been seen before on Thursday doors) this week. Here goes, this selection were first published on Natural Adventures in 2017:

This world famous Banksy piece called ‘mobile lovers’ was in the Bristol Museum for a short while before being returned to the Broad Plain Boys’ Club on whose door it had been painted. They sold the door to a private collector for £403,000 which alleviated the financial problems they were having. It was what Banksy had intended.

Doors 107 – even more archive street/graffiti art doors.

You know the drill. Even though I have been out and about a bit and have photographed quite a few doors lately, I haven’t yet had time to upload them on to my PC – so until such time as I get myself a little bit more organised, you might have top make do with yet another seelection of doors from my street art archive.

I am pleased to note that readers apppear to have enjoyed these galleries when I have posted them, which gives me the courage to continue with them when I need to.

These ones were photographed from September 2015 through to December 2016.

Doors 102 – Bristol doors past

Lock down due to the Covid-19 pandemic is in place in the UK, and looks set to continue for at least another three weeks. This means that doorscursions are limited to rifling through my archive or photographing doors within walking distance of my home. Today’s offering is a bit of a mix of the two.

I was going to do a theme of multiple-doored buildings, but gave up on that very quickly. Instead this is just a small random selection of Bristol doors.

Work is super-busy at the moment, so I’m afraid this post is a little light this week. Hope I have time to do a few next week.

Doors 97 – Some small cellar doors in Bristol

In some of the older commercial buildings in the city there are cellars, and the quickest access to these cellars was from the roadside via doors that opened directly onto the pavement. Perhaps we are most familiar with these cellar doors outside pubs, where the barrels of beer are still delivered through them.

This is just a little selection of these doors, and another little door thrown in for good measure… a little extra if you like.

Here we go:

Doors 91 – Llangorse Lake, Wales

Last weekend we made a trip across the Severn Estuary to see some friends who recently moved to Wales. This was our first visit, and I am sure not our last. After lunch we went for a walk along the southern bank of Llangorse Lake and, of course, I managed to turn the whole thing into a bit of a doorscursion. I hope you enjoy these doors as much as I did.

Thursday doors – 29 August

Doors 82 – Lanhydrock House (2)

Following on from last week’s trip to Lanhydrock House in Cornwall, this time I’ll share with you some of doors from the inside of this magnificent building.

The house dates back to the 17th century, but much of it caught fire in 1881 and following repairs at that time most of the interior furnishings including the doors are Victorian.

In true aristocratic Victorian style, there are a lot of dead (stuffed) animals in the house – trophies from colonialhunting trips.

Food was a big deal in this house and the meals prepared in the kitchens were kept warm in this cabinet before being served in the dining room .

Finally the tour of the house takes you to the stunning long gallery with its 17th century ceiling. This wing of the house was the only one that survived the fire of 1881.

So that wraps it up for another week or so. Enjoy what’s left of the week and have a lovely weekend.
