Thursday Doors, December 21 2017

All doors in a day. The day was this Saturday and the location Ljubljana marshes and surroundings.

But first a little door story from yesterday. I found a huge shop selling only windows and doors. I entered it happily in the hope of finding some interesting ones. Immediately I saw that it was a mistake. I was met by a highly suspicious seller who eyed my camera with a mixture of curiosity and disagreement. I told her that I love doors in general and only needed them for my blog.

She understood “block”.

Hilarity ensued when she said that for a block of flats I needed a pretty regular door. I only giggled on the inside but cleared the misunderstanding. She said she had no information on allowing bloggers to take photos of her doors. Far from an invitation so I thanked her for her time, and split.

They were highly uninspiring anyway, dull and grey and modern. Not like the ones below. Enjoy.

  1. Loved the story, and the arches! The framing of the doors through the arches is one of my favorite composition themes.

    That dinning room was lovely so full of light, and pure white linens, and tableware.

    1. Thank you, Deborah. Oh, yes, arches attract me too. And mom’s cousin is impeccable. 😉

    Despite the disappointing shop visit you managed to find some excellent doors. I especially love that shot of the St. Ana’s door beyond the keyhole opening.
    I was wondering if those were roof tiles or pieces of brick scattered on the ground.
    It has been a great year of door sharing and I wanted to thank you my friend for all of your wonderful posts and for your support.
    All the best to you and yours for 2018! Cheers 😀

    1. Thank you so much, Norm. I’ve been enjoying scouting and posting doors immensely. Lately I haven’t been a regular guest to all other door posts but I have every intention of making up for it. Happy holidays and the year ahead to you as well. Those were indeed roof tiles but the roof is restored already. They must have left them there on purpose or it’s temporary.

    Really enjoyed this collection of doors and your storytelling.
    I’m so disappointed when I ask for permission to photograph someone or something and it’s not given. Especially when others take photos on their cellphones without asking or without being noticed, but I guess it’s only polite to ask. One has to do the right thing.

    1. Thank you very much, Vibha, great to hear. Indeed, it’s a bummer to be denied and it only made me take a photo today in another shop without asking. :p It was of plants. I’m sure they didn’t mind it.

    Great photos and story. All the photos are good, but it’s hard to get past the first one.

    1. Thank you, Dan. 🙂 I often finish with my favourite photos but this time I put it first. More of this church to come.

    Some cracking doors and doorways. I like the way you stick to the brief. Some Thursday door posts are metaphorical, which is a bit odd.

    1. Thank you, Scooj. Well I do and don’t, in this post, for example, there is a door into the lake. 😀 But yes, there are so many doors everywhere one turns, no need to invent.

      2. Maybe but I’m not too sure. This is not an active church, I’ve been told. It only opens on special occasions. Such as getting married. 😀

    Stunning collection — ooh and ahh on the arches of brick!
    Love the photo of the flooded marsh — across the street from me floods quite a bit, but nothing so aesthetically pleasing has occurred.
    Love this post!

    1. Thanks, Joey. I have more photos from the flooded areas. I found it thus too but there was also a deep unease at taking photos of other people’s misfortune.

    Especially lovely doors today, MMM! And I did a double-take at the zeroes in the water … ha – I know they are curved bars reflected, but every time I glanced, I saw zeroes or Os in there!

    1. Thank you, Lexi, great to hear. Yes, it does seem that way. And I haven’t toyed with this image at all, it is just how it was.
