Almost four years ago, when I first joined the Thursday Doors crowd, I made the comment: “There aren’t many interesting doors on my daily commute.” It appears I was mistaken. In my defense, the circumstances were different. First, in 2015, about 90% of my commute was on an Interstate highway. That still holds for my morning commute, but my evening commute only has me on the highway about 5% of the time. Second, I started in April, after the snow had melted and the temperature had climbed above 25°f (-4°c), which has been the highs we’ve been living with lately.
As I’m sure is the case with most Thursday Doors regulars, I notice where there are interesting doors. Unfortunately, they aren’t often accessible. Norm is on record as not being willing to pay bail, so I’m guessing he’s not interested in paying traffic or parking fines. I keep saying things like, “I’ll swing by here in the summer, park over there and walk around,” but it’s not summer. I’ve also been saying that I’ll take one of the planned doorscursions I have queued up, but, again, not until the white stuff melts.
One interesting thing that I’ve noticed this winter, is that a lot of doors are visible in the winter that won’t be visible in a few months (once the trees have leaves again). So, these might not be the best door photos, but in some cases, they’re the only ones I’m likely to get of these doors.
If you’re interested in participating in this fun weekly blogfest, Norm has made it very easy. You follow this link to get to his door page. Near the bottom of that, under his beautiful doors, you’ll see a link (maybe a frog, maybe not) to a list. You can go there and look at other pages like this, and/or you can sign-up and create a link to your collection of doors. So join us!
The doors in my gallery are in East Hartford and Windsor, Connecticut. As far as I know, there’s nothing special, other than some of them have been standing a long time and have been well cared for (or not). I hope you enjoy them.
