Oooh There’s a Door – #ThursdayDoors

I really like these doors.

After two longer than normal posts, both dripping with technology, I decided you guys deserve a break. Rather than continuing our tour of Concord, Massachusetts, today I’m just sharing a bunch of doors. I don’t know much about these doors. I see most of them every day, but that’s all I’ve got.

Thursday Doors is a weekly adventure sponsored by Norm Frampton. We gather at Norm’s place, sometime between 5:30 am Thursday and noon, Saturday – Norm doesn’t like to be too strict. If you have a door(s) to share, join us at Norm’s – check out his doors – and follow his instructions for adding a link to your doors.


  1. Hi Dan – I’ll be back to read the techie ones; but always love seeing your selections of doorways inside and out … fun – cheers Hilary

  2. Wow, Dan, I think this is the shortest post I’ve ever seen from you. Normally, I don’t visit Thursday doors, but I couldn’t resist this morning. Nice doors!

    By the way, I am having trouble posting a comment under the fire truck photo, so I will say it here. If that is a Pierce fire truck, it came from Appleton, WI. :-)

  3. Nice post. I have already posted mine and shared the link and comment on Norm’s post. I love the first picture with that sunrise in the background. However, that barn reminds me of The Amityville Horror movie. Apologies if that offends you but like Peter I like horror movie, or should I say all kinds of movies. You are really good with your pictures. You inspire me to take better pictures myself, although in my case Sarah manages most of the pictures and videos. I’m more focused on content.

    • Thanks Sharukh. I’m so glad you joined the party today. I hope you enjoy it. I’m not offended. The best thing about photography is when an image lets someone connect with their own thoughts or memories. You and Peter are people that I enjoy knowing, so connecting with you guys works for me.

      • Yes, it was fun. I wrote the post in advance, but I was waiting for the opportunity to visit the city and take pictures of my college. So, I called my nephew who works in the same locality. He sneaked into my college and took some pictures while I was navigating him on the phone. Thank you for that tweet. You can see I and Peter often discuss about movies on FB. Generally, I’m ahead of him in watching movies. :)

  4. I’m not a big fan of the color green, but I really like those double green doors. The barn doors are great….different design. Most of these homes are huge. I would hate to have to heat them in a New England winter! Lol.

    The home where they stopped removing the siding, what a grand building. How I wish we could see inside these places. But maybe we’d be disappointed, so better to let our imagination take over.

    And sometimes you don’t have to say much Dan, your great photos do the talking for you. 😜

    • Thanks Ginger. I have to confess, I don’t know which picture has green doors. I’ll have to ask when I get home, These homes are large, larger than I’d want to heat or even rattle around in.

      I love researching the history of buildings, but I felt like I’ve written a lot this week. Saturday’s post from the bar is going to be special, and it might run a little long, so this was a good day to take a break. I appreciate your thoughts about the pictures.


  5. Ooooo, how would you like to be the guy who has to back that fire truck into the garage? Not that much different than backing up a tractor trailer – but if you ding it, you’d never hear the end of it. :)

    • I bet they make the new guy do it.

      I volunteered to help out at a friend’s hardware store once. They let me drive the forklift to unload a paint delivery. One pallet had a 5-gallon bucket sitting on top. I nearly hit the door with is as I was backing it out. I lowered the forks just in time.

      I asked: “why didn’t you guys warn me?”

      “Where’s the fun in that?” was the consensus reply.

  6. Dan – is the far side of that barn where the real barn doors are ? It looks cute and symmetrical however those two small doors in the corners of the barn look more decorative than practical. Especially the one with the huge propane tank right in front of it. Have I gone over the word limit for a response ? Don’t worry you have given me a title for my next post – ‘word limit’.

    • You have a good eye (and sharp mind) John. There are much larger doors on both sides of that barn, but they are always hard to get good pictures of.

      And yeas, I want to move the propane tank!

  7. I like the red house with the sloping addition. LIke you, I often look at a building and wonder what it must possibly look like from the inside! This would be one.

    I also like the blue-gray barn with the doors you like. It reminds me of a giant head with a slouchy hat on it.

  8. I loved the barn best. We don’t see stuff like that here. I hope that sloping addition involves a water slide. It’s the only logical explanation for such a building. The only bit I wasn’t keen on in this post is that you buy coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Really? On purpose?

  9. I think I just went into shock. Are you sure you are the author of this post? Where are the words? Did they disappear? Gallery ….. we really know you LOVE those barn doors. Very cool selections and I thank you for taking the time to capture them. Interesting architecture in your area. Some of those older homes OH how they cry for restoration!

    • Hahaha – I know, Amy, it’s short. But, I had two long posts earlier this week, and I need my full word-limit for the SoCS post tomorrow (I’m excited about that).

      There is a lot of TLC needed around here, but working on historic houses is time consuming and expensive.

      Thanks for the chuckle – have a great weekend.

  10. You had DOORS stacked up here, and I love the barn but found that an interesting place to put a propane tank. :-) I also love the sloping addition. My imagination went off looking at it thinking about how maybe they wanted to be able to walk back and forth without going outside in bad weather. Anyway – good collection including that nice balcony you have at work. :-)


  11. Double door barn for the win! I like the trim detail on the yellow? peach? house — I don’t know that I’ve seen those shapes on the trim — old or new, definitely adds a special something.
