Thursday Doors – October 13, 2016

“University College Side Door”

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 the University of Toronto and the wide assortment of doors and interesting architectural styles.

An observation, as I considered this image: it is incredible, the details, some quite obvious, that we miss. For example, this door has two very distinct and different columns, each with a unique capital (that is the top part of the column). Something I had not noticed when I first saw the door and framed the shot. It now has me curious what the symbolism of the two styles is.

A rather sad element of this image is that it shows the significant damage done to the marble columns by salt and age. However, the door itself is quite marvelous with its expressive ironwork. I hope you enjoy this week’s Thursday Door.

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.

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

This week, a return to the University of Toronto and it numerous spectacular doors. Today, I have chosen the main doorway to Knox College, another building on the U of T grounds, proudly facing the central campus grounds as they have for over one hundred years.

I’d like to return her to photograph the interior. The website link above shows a brief glimpse into this architectural wonder.

“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 – May 25, 2016

“Munk Institute Doors” - University of Toronto

Walking along Toronto’s Bloor Street West, I came across these wonderful doors. The Munk Institute is part of the University of Toronto campus and I’ve admired them often, as I walked past. Today the light was just right. Much to my surprise, I had never noticed the details in the stonework above the door and topping the pillars. Have a closer look.

Interestingly, many of the compositional elements that enhance this image are subconscious when I make the photo. It’s one of those scenes that appeal to me, but I can’t articulate the ‘why’ till I look closely at the final image.
