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 return to the University of Toronto and its doors. Today, I have chosen a peculiar doorway to Trinity College. Though it’s difficult to show the scale on the photo, the doorway is quite short, only about five feet tall. I’m not sure what the significance is, perhaps it forces you to bow on entering?

This portion of the building is a more recent addition, as indicated by the cornerstone, though it still had the same wonderful architecture as the main building it was added to.

Once again, this day offered me superb natural light which shone from the stones, illumination the wonderful oak doors.

“Provost’s Lodge Door” - 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.

As the name tag indicates, this is the door to the Provost’s Lodge at Trinity College, part of the University of Toronto. It’s part of a full day photo shoot I did at the U of T a few weeks ago. The light that morning was wonderful and soft, reflecting off the ground and nicely filling the shadows for me.

Thursday Doors – August 11, 2016

“Trinity College Front 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.

I went for a tour of the University of Toronto campus last weekend, knowing there would be some great doors. Surprisingly, having grown up in the Toronto area, I have never done a deliberate tour of the campus. The variations in architecture are incredible, ranging from Gothic to ultra modern. With those variations, come some spectacular doors.

The light this day was wonderful and really brought out the textures and colour of the various doors well and showing off the variation in stone used to frame them.

The door above is the front entrance to Trinity College. I chose this to be my first in a series of U of T doors because of how unique and interesting it is. Apart for the beautiful gothic main door, there is a curious side door, which is the night entrance. The tag on the main doors directs you to use the night entrance. I suspect the main doors are used only on special occasions. You’ll note it’s also slightly higher than the main door, perhaps to keep snow out in the winter months?

The entire building in beautiful. Just let your eyes float over the scene from the doors themselves, the intricate ironwork hinges, leaded glass in the windows and the historical gargoyles that great you as you approach the door.
