Thursday doors – 15 October 2020

Doors 124 – Back to some Bristol doors

This week I am getting ahead of the game and preparing over the weekend (now last weekend) some regular Bristol doors from photographs taken over the past few months – just a hotch potch of doors with no theme. There are one or two interesting ones in there which I hope you enjoy.

Happy door hunting.

So there you have it – I am able to do doors other than street art doors although I suspect that is a theme I will return to before long if I struggle with time.

Have a great weekend.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors and you really ought to take a look at the Norm 2.0 blog – the originator of Thursday Doors where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

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.

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.
