Doors 130 – A big thank you to Norm

As ‘Thursday doorsters’, you will all know that Norm is stepping down from hosting Thursday doors. This week’s post is some of my favourite doors from the last year or two to thank Norm Frampton for opening my eyes and helping me to see such door beauty in the world.

For Norm:

Go well Norm and thanks for all the doors (especially Italy and Ruelles Vertes).

That’s it for another week.

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 Norm 2.0 blog,  where there are links to yet more doors in the comments section at the end.

* on the news that tomorrow will be Norm Frampton’s last Thursday Doors post for a while as he puts his efforts into other things. I shall miss his doors and weekly appearances and am eternally grateful for his opening my eyes to the magnificence of doors.

Doors 129 – Dorchester doors (3)

A little rummage through my desktop archives revealed some doors I photographed on a work trip I took to Dorchester back in June last year, when life was so much less complicated. Rather than feed you a diet of street art doors every week, I thought I’d switch it up a bit with this little collection. Enjoy.

So another week swiftly passes us by, but it is important that we stop and smell the flowers every now and again, otherwise what is the point?

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 127 – Bristol doors with interesting surrounds

Sometimes it is not so much the door that is interesting but the brickwork, the awnings, the steps, or the whole design around an entrance that makes it stand out. This week’s selection of doors all have rather plain doors, but what surrounds them is worth a good look. Here we go:

Doors 126 – I can’t believe it’s Thursday doors

Please, please, please don’t tell me it is Thursday already. I have had a pretty busy week of it so far and completely forgot about Thursday Doors, in fact I completely forgot about Thursday.

I am going to have to quickly cobble something together during my lunch break. When I say ‘going to have to’ I wouldn’t like you to think that this is something I don’t enjoy doing or that is an onerous task that I am being forced to carry out. Not at all. I love doing it, I am just fighting against time, all the time. I am rather looking forward to semi-retirement (some years off) or complete retirement (a little further).

Doors 125 – More street art ‘memory lane’ doors

It is becoming more and more difficult to seek out new doors. The combined forces of coronavirus, the worsening weather and shortening days makes doorscursions particularly difficult at the moment, so I head straight for my comfort blanket and present you with some more archived doors this week, these ones mostly from last year.

Enjoy.

And that’s it I’m afraid this week, I am having to ration these out a bit because before you know it I will have run out of archive material and will be resorting to photographs of my kitchen cabinets and cupboard doors.

Have a great weekend.

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.

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:

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.
