Thursday doors – 9 July 2020

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…

So that’s it for another week. I’m off fishing in Cornwall this evening and for the weekend… I’ll be thinking of you all.

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 – 2 July 2020

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 – 25 June 2020

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:

Banksy, Bristol Museum, Bristol, May 2014

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.

Thursday doors – 21 May 2019

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.

Thursday doors – 24 April 2020

Doors 103 – Graffiti doors

I have heard this a lot from people, particularly those who are still in full time employment during this difficult time, that counter-intuitively there seems to be less spare time, rather than more. Working at home when the whole household is home creates a whole raft of time-thieves. Home teaching, cooking extra meals, general care and a job that has become busier thanks to the virus.

Even though I have taken a week off this week, I have filled my time with the allotment, garden and other jobs. The upshot is that I am doing a very quick and easy Thursday doors this week. I have been going through my street archives and thought I’d bring you some graffiti doors. You might have seen one or two of these before. I have a rich vein of material so expect more like this in the coming weeks.

This door was stolen a few years ago and then returned when the thief realised that selling it would give him away. It is by Nick Walker who now lives in NYC.
