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.

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.

“Neighbours” - Saint John, New Brunswick

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

Back to Saint John, New Brunswick once more and it’s variety of lovely doors. This one is title “Neighbours”, for fairly obvious reasons. I found it very interesting how two adjacent doorways could look so different, based on the homeowner’s decorating style. It was also interesting just how much the light changed the colour of the stonework from warm to cool.

“Intrigued” - Saint John, New Brunswick

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

I titled this one “Intrigued”, because of the sign advertising lots of wine. As I explored the streets of downtown Saint John several weeks ago, I came across this nicely painted door. It’s one of those dreaded formed steel doors, but they did a nice job of integrating it into the feel of the area. A series of updated warehouses, now converted into restaurants and pubs.

I was intrigued by the sign advertising their wine selection but was on a schedule that did not allow me to check it out. That will require a future visit.

8 Germain Street, Saint John

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

And yet another door for beautiful Germain Street in Saint John, New Brunswick. This fairly simple door, with the ornate scrollwork above it, sits at the very beginning of Germain Street and concluded my photo walk that day.

Once more, the door is a bit ‘weathered’ but the owners have taken some measures to make it beautiful. It looks like an original door, which is wonderful. I see so many antique doors being replaced with aluminum and vinyl and the character is lost.

The photo was made near the end of the day and you can see the sun reflecting off the building across the street. Once more, I’m posting the Google Streetview link, so you can see the doors in relation to their surroundings. The contrast between old and modern will surprise you.

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

Yet another door for beautiful Germain Street in Saint John, New Brunswick. I loved these ornate, yet somewhat weather worn doors. If you look at the Street View, you’ll see the neighbour has painted theirs. A vast improvement, in my opinion, though I do like the look of natural wood.
