New Year, old doors. Number 3 Princess Street is final image for my autumn trip Saint John, New Brunswick. I was not aware that this city is built among a series of steep hills, and the doors are quite interesting. This section of the city was quite run down a few years ago but is now a flourishing area of pubs and boutiques. Here’s the Google Streetview link to the location for your enjoyment. Take a tour, it’s quite lovely.

Thursday Doors – October 27, 2016

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

Today a travel photo. I was in Saint John, New brunswick on business last week and though I brough my camera gear, I found little time to be a tourist. Rather, I made most of my images with my Iphone as I took a quick stroll through Saint John’s wonderful victorian streets.

The doors here are plentiful and beautiful. Germain Street is especially lovely, though there is a great variance in the condition of the homes and their doors. Some building have been meticulously updated and maintained, hearkening to San Francisco, while others are surprisingly run down and unkempt. The door above is somewhere between and seems to have been neglected of late. I’m attaching a Google Streetview for you if you feel like taking a quick tour.

“Bay of Fundy Surf” - Saint John, New Brunswick

“So slip on your goggles and your reading trunks, for the sun is high. Let me leave you with one more thought. In what season of the year do we find ourselves – I’m speaking for a moment in terms of the physical world – wading through things? Surf. Kelp. Books. Summer.”
― Roy Blount Jr.

This photo is not my usual style, but I love water, moving  water, and I especially love the sound of surf on a beach.

As I strolled the beach at Irving Nature Park, near Saint John, New Brunswick, I made several images of the waves rolling in, looking for a certain ‘feel’. This particular image captured that feel for me.

I can feel the power of the bay, see the sky reflected, bright and blue on the water’s surface, and hear the sound as the wave crests, sprays mist into the air, crashes on the sand, and flows back to its source. The wave is coming in, and going out at the same moment. A pattern, repeated for millennia, yet always appealing to me.
