Thursday Doors – March 02, 2017

“Real Mexican Art?” - Todos Santos

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.

“Real Mexican Art?” – Todos Santos, Mexico

I found this gem while visiting Hotel California, in Todos Santos, a large town on the Baja Peninsula.While walking with my family, I was attracted to this door being framed by the two round windows, an unusual design. So, I made a quick image and then hurried to catch up with the group.

It was not till I was reviewing the image that I noticed the details of the sign above the door. It made me laugh. Honesty in advertising? I’m not sure, but after a few days of touring the gift shops and having every merchant tell me they had the best price around, that it was all authentic art, made by local villagers, or an isolated tribe from the surrounding mountains, this was kind of refreshing.

Too bad the door was locked, it would be interesting to see what they are actually selling, if anything.

Thursday Doors – December 15, 2016

“Neighbours” - Saint John, New Brunswick

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.

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.

“Number 3” - Bancroft, Ontario

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.

After a few weeks of door deprivation I have this submission for your consideration. NO 3 is number 3 Bridge Street in Bancroft, Ontario.

I love the elegance of this door to an upscale fashion store in the rural community of Bancroft. Over many years spending summers in this wonderful community, I had yet to make a photo of it for my doors collection.

It’s a bit out of the ordinary for me, as I’m usually drawn to historical buildings with ornate doors and iron work, but this one is an exception for me, even though it’s a stamped steel door, it still retains some character and enhances the entryway.

8 Germain Street, Saint John

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.

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.

“University College Doors” - University of Toronto

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.

Yet another of many images made during my tour of the University of Toronto campus a few weeks ago

The door above belongs to the University of Toronto’s “University College Building”. This building sites in the centre of the main campus. The plaque below can be seen on either side of the door in the image above above, the lefthand one in French and righthand one in English, Canada’s official languages.University College Plaque

 

The door is almost lost in the elaborate facade, with its intricate stone work and concentric arches. I also included the details of part of the main tower to add scale to this image. It truly is a beautiful door, and one of many in the downtown Toronto campus. More to follow.

“Abandoned Church” - Bruce County Road 40
 

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.

OK, I’m cheating a bit today. This is a closer view of the door to a church I photographed last week and posted earlier today.

It looks like the doors, and the building, have seen better days and I wish I had spend a bit longer looking around and making some interior shots too. It was not till I started processing the image that I noticed the scuff mark on the door, Indicating the the lock has been removed at some time, allowing the locking bar to swing freely.

It’s pretty amazing what nature can do to unattended buildings. The yellow brick is typical in this area, being made from local clay, it takes on the yellow colour rather than the brick-red many of us are used to. There are many old buildings in the area in excellent condition, but without heat in the winter, the building rapidly declines, as frost gets between the bricks and mortar, splitting them apart. I’ve started looking through the county archives to get a bit of history of this unidentified church.
