Thursday Doors – May 11, 2017

“St. Marys Anglican Church” - Richmond Hill

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.

“St. Mary’s Anglican Church” – Richmond Hill

Today’s ‘doors’ post is multipurpose. First of all, this church has a beautiful original door, circa 1874. I’ve shared the door, close up, previously, but wanted to share it again in a different season, when the building is not obscured by trees. Secondly, in small towns around Ontario, there is an event called “Doors Open Ontario“. It’s an opportunity for the public to go inside many buildings, be they historical, specialized, or just interesting, as see what’s behind the doors they pass daily. The Doors Open event for the town of Richmond Hill is this Saturday, May 13th, and I made the image for the church to use for the event as well as their service bulletins.

The final reason, for those in the Richmond Hill area, is that I have been asked to show some of my photography, alongside other artists who attend this church. So, it’s a good chance to see behind the doors, meet new people, and purchase some art.

Thursday Doors – July 07, 2016

“Old Side Door” - St. Mary’s Anglican Church, Richmond Hil

“When someone you love says goodbye you can stare long and hard at the door they closed and forget to see all the doors God has open in front of you.”
― Shannon L. Alder

The image above is of yet another fine door at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The door is an oddity, as there is no step down (I was going to title it “Mind Your Step”), and it’s sealed off on the inside. I imagine it must have been a door to the Incumbent’s residence in days gone by. I will need to ask about that.

In any case, it’s a beautiful door and is nicely complimented by a set of wonderful windows and framed below by a lush garden at this historical church in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Thursday Doors – June 30, 2016

“Chapel Door” - St. Mary’s Anglican Church, Richmond Hill

“Then the singing enveloped me. It was furry and resonant, coming from everyone’s very heart. There was no sense of performance or judgment, only that the music was breath and food.”
― Anne Lamott

The image above is of the old chapel door of St. Mary’s Anglican Church, in Richmond Hill, Ontario. My wife works here and we both started attending recently. The old chapel is a very old building (Circa 1872) with lots of character and, of course, awesome doors. I simply could not resist including them here.
