Thursday doors – 21 January 2021

Doors 135 – back to the archive for some street/graffiti art doors

Things are very busy at work and the streets are wet. This means that my opportunities to get out and find some new doors are significantly depleted. So it is back to the archive. These photographs first appeared on Natural Adventures in April and May 2020 (even though some of them were taken long before that). Enjoy.

So that’s your lot for the week, a week in which the world seems a safer and more reliable place.

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.

Thursday doors – 3 November 2020

Doors 131 – a welcome to Dan Anton and some more graffiti archive doors

It has been an ultra busy week, so I am returning to my ‘safety blanket’ of doors from my street art archives. The worrying thing is that I am steadily using up my reserve doors and really need to get out to photograph some new and exciting doors. Bristol is currently in the highest tier of covid-19 restrictions, so it may still be some time before I can get out and about.

This little selection were originally posted on Natural Adventures during December 2019 and January this year. Enjoy:

Well there was a bit of cheating in that lot, and quite a few boarded up doors, but in this friendly community of door lovers, I’m sure even oblique references to doors are acceptable.

So that’s it for this week. More next week I hope.

Thursday doors – 12 November 2020

Doors 128 – a return to some street art and graffiti doors

As the country is once again locked down (although it somehow doesn’t feel as severe as the last time) photographing new doors continues to be something of a challenge. I long for a visit to a National Trust property or something similar, but I fer that such a trip is still a while off. In the meantime it is another dip into my archives to bring you some more graffiti doors from last year.

Doors 123 – Yet more recycling of street/graffiti art doors

It may come as some relief to readers of this post that I am gently approaching the end of the road with my archived street art doors. I might be able to squeeze a further four or five weeks out of them but then the pressure will be on to capture some new doors.

Actually I do have a few Bristol doors up my sleeve, but just need a little bit more time to write about them.

Anyhoo, enjoy today’s offering:

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.

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:

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.
