Thursday Doors

09-02-2017

Been trying (with limited success) to get some door theme’s together for future “Thursday Doors” postings over at the Norm 2.0  blog, do go and check it out. It’s been difficult to get any decent images because the weather has been dull and grey in my part of the UK.

Have You Made Your Peace it says on one of the signs

Fortunately Monday of this week was bright and sunny and I managed to get this unusual one on a visit to the area I grew up in. Then I filled up my memory card and had forgotten to put a spare in the bag.

Great Live Music Pub

It’s been a while since I’ve been to this pub, they have great music nights and excellent beer. Getting there is no problem, it’s getting back that’s difficult !

This is a lovely old bank building in the centre of Leicester and it has recently been restored and turned into a steak house.

Great carvings either side of the door.

Thursday Doors

My contribution to the excellent Norm 2.0 “Thursday Doors Blog”

The weather has really not been too good here, fleeting bright spells normally when I’ve just got back from a walk ! So some of these images are from my archive.

My theme for this week is Georgian, there are some really nice ones in the city, most are well looked after or are being restored.

I took this on a plastic Vivitar ultrawide  film camera, the door has now been restored, I prefer it this way.

Thursday Doors – Ecclesiastical Doors

I had to dig into my archives to find some doors to post on “Thursday Doors” over at the excellent Norm 2.0 blog. The weather and light have been dull and grey here in Leicester.

Tall & Slim

You would need to be tall & slim to fit through this door at All Saints Church, Braunston, Rutland. This photo was taken on my Olympus 35DC film camera.

Sacristy Door

If you look carefully at the two doors above, letters and numbers have been chalked on them, I have no idea what if anything they refer to. These were taken on 10th Jan this year one of the few bright days we have had.

Chartres Cathedral, France 2008

Chartres Cathedral is a magnificent building, and Chartres was a great overnight stop on my way back from my friends in Aquitaine.

*Sorry about the large size of some of these images, but it was before I got the sizing right for WordPress posts. 

Last few from the Olympus OM1n and expired Kodacolor 200

Some of my favourite subject matter for the last few images, Old Garages, Electricity Sub Stations, Trees, and of course Doors. Really surprised how the kodacolor performed considering it was more than 10 years out of date. I have mainly used Kodak films for colour over the years, and really miss Ektachrome.
