Thursday Doors

19-05-22

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.

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

Still suffering with the cold/flu but it’s easing a bit. Going to risk visiting the music pub tomorrow, perhaps a whiskey or two will help ease the symptoms. Consequently I haven’t been out and about taking photo’s so here are two from early last year. For more images of doors from around the world take a look at Dan Antion’s excellent blog.

I’m still suffering with a cold (it’s getting better) so haven’t been out and about to capture any door images. These are from last November/January in my local area. Check out Dan Antion’s blog page for lots of amazing Thursday Doors and stories.

Congregational Church. Agfa Parat – Fomapan 100 @ 200asa – Ilford Ilfosol
A hairdressers salon, could have done with colour film for this one, really bright décor. Agfa Parat – Fomapan 100 @ 200asa – Ilford Ilfosol
Old Gate. Sigma DP1 – Analog EfeX

Thursday Doors

From a last September walkabout.

Not too many of these old style shops about anymore. (not Baker Street !)
Side of an old empty factory (now sold)

I took these images with a new to me Half Frame Agfa Parat camera, Fomapan 100 at 200 asa developed in Ilfosol 3. Was so pleased the camera worked as it should, its a fully manual camera so you have to estimate focus distance and exposure. I have the Paramat version too, that one sets the exposure automatically.
