Thursday Doors, June 29 2017

Today’s edition of Thursday Doors is a little bit special: it was the first time that I went on a doorscursion with another photographer, and today we both wish to share our Trastevere doors with you.

Not that we called it that: that day amore and I met Liz and two other Americans for the first time, and the doors from several parts of Rome posed as a highly clickable backdrop. I told you about our happy day here. Today it’s time to focus on Trastevere and its doors.

In the meantime, Liz has started to blog regularly about her adventures in Italy where she spent two weeks, and plans to include more of her photography, especially bird photos. Her blog is called Fetching the World. My father mistook one of her posts for one of mine. Not surprisingly, since we must be two of a kind – except that she is more diligent with her photos and better equipped.

Today we decided to post the doors from the same day, without showing the photos to one another before posting. So it will be as interesting for me to visit her post to see how many doors we have in common, as it will be for her to visit mine and for all of you to visit both.

I welcome Liz to Thursday Doors mania and wish her happy blogging and many new followers!

    It’s so nice to see a rare photo of you. Amore did a good job 🙂

    I love the green door with the vine work painted around the edges. Too bad about the graffiti though.0

    1. Oh, Joanne, is it so rare? But I’m in there often, yesterday too! At least in reflections. 🙂 Graffiti go with the territory, I’m afraid, take it or leave it. If they removed all the graffiti there, it would have a completely different feel.

        Ok – I’ll give you the not *rare* part, but this was an actual recent bona fide photo of you … and I liked it 🙂

    Oh 88! But also I love the green with the vines painted on and all the fine metal details. So pretty!
    How lovely it must be to take a doorscursion with a fellow door lover, and pause for gelato! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Joey! As I say, this was my first joint doorscursion and it was a grand experience. Especially when all the others vanished, but she stayed behind for the same reason I did. 😀 And we could search for them together. Repeatedly. Door lovers, unite! 🙂

    1. Ohhh, Vanessa, you of all people! 😉 Nothing to be envious about, you’d create magic with 1% of that. And thank you!

  4. I enjoyed the doors as usual. I’ve never taken a doorscursion with another blogger, although I’ve met a number of fellow bloggers. Maybe one day… My s-i-l is always nice enough when we drive and walk around France, to indulge my door insanity. 🙂

    1. Ah, that’s nice to hear, Janet. My people are understanding but always bordering on making fun. 😀 I guess not all bloggers are a good door-spotting match, but I’ve been lucky. Liz and I are very complementary. 🙂

    You collected a fine group of doors. A little sad to see the beautiful wood arched door covered in graffiti, but I guess that happens.

    1. Thanks, Dan. Yes, it’s practically part of the allure.

  6. Lovely door portfolio from our day in Trastevere. After I looked thru, I had thought, “man, I wish I had captured some of those!” – but, quickly retracted the thought. It’s much more satisfying, and interesting, that we didn’t shadow each other; that we oh-so-perfectly and unintentionally drifted to different nooks and wide open spots and captured what we felt moved to shoot, in our own little world of Trastevere. ❤

    1. Right, never shadow… A memorable day indeed. Thank you.

  7. As always, a great collection of doors. I like them all. My favorite today is at house #24. While I don’t like to see beautiful doors ruined by graffiti, it is what it is, and it makes for an interesting door. How fun that you got to tour the town with a fellow photographer and blogger. And, thanks for sharing Liz’s fabulous blog with us.

    There is something about door #24 that fascinates me…the tile lined up, marching around the arch.

    I’ve had the pleasure of doorscursioning with others a few times now; it’s always fun to see things from someone else’s point of view. I find it makes me notice things I would have otherwise missed.
    As usual your collection is awesome this week. The one with the painting of the old woman keeps drawing me back.

    1. Oh, thank you, Norm. Yes, I had an excellent first joint door experience. 🙂 Now I’ll want more! And of course, in an ideal world, we should have a World Door-to-Door Meeting. 😉 The old woman I’m not even sure if it’s on a door, but I don’t care – I had to show her here.

  11. Lovely photos and so nice to see vine growing around those doors. It’s great to join up with another blogger for a doorscursion, you looked like you were both having fun.

    1. Thank you, Jean. 🙂 Yes, vine and graffiti, that’s Trastevere. We had fun indeed and now I want to do it again.
