Thursday Doors

26-05-22

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.

I do like a green door, even if it’s a bit tatty like this one.

Bit of a half porthole on this one.

Past grandeur, I hope it gets restored.

Tagging, really !

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.

To see some Doors from all over the world head over to Dan Antions excellent blog.

The flowers above the door caught my eye on this one.

Thornby Hall

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.

View of the Hall

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.

A simple side door

The gardens around the hall are really worth a walk around, not too manicured, left to be more natural.

I know it’s not a door, but I liked this little shelter/gazebo

Looking forward to going back for another visit, they serve really good food and coffee, not to mention homemade cakes !

Missed It

Missed posting on “Thursday doors” yesterday, was out in town for the best part and had chores to do and my cat Mimi to fuss when I got back to home. Whilst hanging out the washing this morning (the excitement never ends) I noticed the garden had sprung into life a bit, also noticed how much work I need to do to get it into some sort of shape. The weather in my part of the UK has been very mixed, it’s still quite cold and windy. The only camera I had with a charged battery was my old Olympus E400, but I managed to get a few shots of the spring growth.

Quite a lot of Bluebells this year

The Rhododendron is covered in flowers

Even one or two Cornflowers were out

The Lilacs look and smell lovely

Managed to photograph a few doors on my way to the music pub last Friday. Haven’t felt much like taking any images lately, but the weather was reasonable if not that warm, and the thought of meeting friends and some good beer and music spurred me on. Check out Dan Antions blog for a great selection of doors from around the world.

I like the slightly tatty doors the best.
Love the old Victorian villas that have names.

Great brickwork and canopy.

Another named one.

Two for one.

A nice textured Blue one.
