After Joey it’s Dan to the rescue, guest-hosting Norm’s Thursday Doors. For Dan, and all of you, a bunch of green doors. I remember posting a lovely green door once and Dan commented that he doesn’t see green colour all that well. Here are doors in different shades of greenness for him to test his…

Today, with Joey at the Thursday Doors hosting position, we shall be in flowers. And pots and plants. I don’t know about you, but Slovenians, when they get drunk, claim to be “in flowers”. No, I’m not drunk, merely slightly euphoric. The reason for that and for a slightly late posting is the first Slovenian…

The town is called Milje if you ask us, and Muggia if you ask them. It lies in Italy just across the border, that’s why there are many Slovenian families living behind these doors. I remember vividly reading Ishita’s 10 Charming Small Towns in Italy post on her Italophilia blog. I hadn’t known many of them but…

Today just one door. But it’s all-encompassing. I’ve always found it hard to imagine how one building can contain all books published by a nation. And yet it does. Luckily, the nation is rather small. During my January Graffiti Tour of Ljubljana I told the guide that I liked taking photos of doors especially, and…

Out of endless Piran doors, here are some that caught my eye this time. Yesterday I had a sobering walk through the centre of Ljubljana. It was a vulgar display of availability for money. In comparison, Slovenian coast still has its spirit, at least Piran does. And I’m not talking about the smell of pee,…

In need of a new door? How about a cinema under the stars with the view? Today’s edition has two parts. Soon after I started posting Thursday Doors, father suggested that if I wanted doors I could go in search of a door-selling shop. I liked the idea but I needed two years or so…

Today’s doors from the south of Slovenia come with a lunch and a view. I remember well when my friend Aleš – who together with his Mihela, one of my two best university buddies, became a parent half a year ago – posted the door of his family tourist farm on Facebook. I promised him…

“Čuj ti, v Mariboru si!” (Hey you, you are in Maribor!) A speedy look at some Maribor doors. Second biggest Slovenian city. Father’s birthplace where he is pointing (point at the door, it’s Thursday!). National soccer champion, one step away from the Champions League. Nuff said.

Thursday Doors, July 13 2017

Since I’m off to where it all started this weekend, have a compilation of Slovenian doors. All of these were taken in 2015 or earlier, when I was not (yet so) dedicated to doors. Still, I was already posting them and you may recognise a few. Some of them have emotional value. The last one…

This is how Siena, The Door Queen, feels like from the inside. I might have posted some of these doors before, but not these photos. These were taken in this order in a couple of hours the last time I was there, with my sister in April. And now it’s July and as I passed dried…

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…

Thursday Doors, June 22 2017

Amore’s coworker said: “You must go to Castagneto Carducci. There are some doors there waiting for you.” And so we went. As we were going in that direction as it was, in search of the castle that didn’t want us from yesterday’s post, I rooted for this hilltop town. My friend obliged. Then we went…

Without further ado, I give you the Duomo on the hill. On the right, do you see it? The Cathedral of Orvieto in Umbria, from all angles, mostly with doors, including the neighbour’s. No wonder Orvieto is one of my top ten smaller middle Italian towns. It was a pleasure and privilege to visit it…

Thursday Doors, June 8 2017

Another funky Thursday. Listening to funk, feeling the funk. Have some funky doors from Montemerano. This is a tiny village close to Terme Saturnia, a wild bathing spot with a warm waterfall and all. For some reason it often makes the top ten list of must-see Italian villages. I mean, not that it’s not especially…

Thursday Doors, June 1 2017

Today is the day to reminisce and look at the doors through which we shall all pass one day. There will not be as many doors as is the Norm (;) unless you think of each grave as a door, and probably we should. This cemetery of Talamone is another example of how serene, almost…

Thursday Doors, May 25 2017

Today used to be Day of Youth in Yugoslavia. Now it’s only the Towel Day. Have some crazy heads and shutters from Rome, and if you behave, you might be hitched off before the world is torn down for that hyperspace bypass. All of these were taken merely a few blocks apart in Rome’s Monteverde district. Usually it’s…
