Not been out and about taking photographs very much lately, friends testing positive for the virus, and the heatwave here in the UK have put a temporary dampener on things. Though I did manage to meet up with the Photo Buddies a couple of weeks ago and find a few doors I hadn’t seen before.
If you would like to see images of some great doors from around the world check out Dan Antion’s excellent blog.
A few doors shot on film during a walk into town in April, only processed the film last month. I was testing out my repaired and serviced Nikkor 20mm f2.8 lens, not that impressed with it, I’ll be trading it in for an Olympus Zuiko 21mm f3.5 if I can find one.
Wasn’t sure if I was going to post today as my lovely cat Mimi suddenly stopped eating. After what happened to her Mum earlier this year It was really worrying. Took her to the vets on Tuesday and they gave her a blood test, got the results late yesterday, she has an overactive thyroid, fortunately it’s treatable and should settle in a couple of weeks. She ate some Tuna in spring water today.
Haven’t been out photographing much lately, and my Laptop has broken. So it’s the old desktop PC for this post, which took absolutely ages to update. This door is one of my favourites, I have printed a copy of it on a lovely textured paper and put it in a frame.

A few more doors from my walks into town. Check out Dan Antions excellent “Thursday Doors” blog to see a selection of doors from around the world. I no need to get out and about to add a few more doors to the archive.
Met my Photo Buddies in town today, it was great to meet up and have a few coffees and a catch up. Managed to capture a few down at heel doors for this weeks “Thursday Doors” post. To see some doors from around the world check out Dan Antions excellent blog.
A few more doors from my walks, mainly to the music pub or to meet friends at a pub in town. I’ve been trying to get my fitness levels up after testing positive for Covid at the beginning of March, I self isolated for 14 days and that took it’s toll as I spent most of the time in the house. Managed to walk 6 miles on Tuesday and it was OK, so getting there.

I was going to post this for last weeks “Thursday Doors” over at Dan Antions excellent blog, but chores and other mundane things got in the way. After my adrenaline ride on the back of my buddies Triumph motorbike to Thornby Hall I managed to steady my hands enough to take some images.
According to their website the site of the Hall dates back to the 1500’s. The building of the present hall starting in 1665. The site is now a meditation centre and as you would expect very calming, I think the lovely warm colour of the stone helps convey calmness.
The gardens around the hall are really worth a walk around, not too manicured, left to be more natural.
Looking forward to going back for another visit, they serve really good food and coffee, not to mention homemade cakes !
