This may come as a shock, but I am not always on the lookout for doors. Well, I am always interested if I see an interesting door or an interesting building, but sometimes, I just go about my business. Of course, that’s usually when my digital warehouse of doors is full and I know which doors go with what Thursday well into the future. When the cupboard is bare, I try to be keenly aware of the doors around me. Lately, that’s been the case, but…
It’s not because I need a big bunch of doors; I actually have a lot of leftovers from Concord, Massachusetts, including a few very special ones. No, these days, I’m on the lookout for buildings, dead trees, cemeteries, overflowing rivers and of course, doors. See, I agreed to supply Teagan R. Geneviene with photos for her new “pantster” series “Brother Love” and I take my responsibility seriously. I’ve been sending Teagan photos, but I’ve been taking pictures at about a 10:1 ratio – hey, it’s not math if I use it in a sentence – to the ones I send her. I am doing that, because I don’t know where this story is going. I’m not sure Teagan does, either, but I’m not worried, she usually finds out in time.
Also, since I’m trying to avoid too many purely technical posts, and since the subject of photo captions is so very important to my Thursday Doors posts, let me give you a quick update on the Guttenberg Gallery issue.
My posting two issues (one feature request and one bug) on Github has gotten the attention of a few developers from the Guttenberg project, or from sub-projects within that larger effort. Suffice it to say, there are several issues with Guttenberg and Jetpack and Galleries and Jetpack Lightrooms and a few other sub-projects I wasn’t aware of. I don’t have any hard information at this time, but I do feel confident that the people working on this project are trying to give us a very good experience when it comes to displaying multiple images. I’ll save the technical details for another day, but don’t give up. I think there will be a good solution before we get cast out of the Classic Editor.
This multi-faceted post is part of Norm Frampton’s wonderfully fun blogfest, Thursday Doors. If you love doors and want to see, photograph and/or share doors, you really need to jog on up to Norm’s place – OK, you can walk – and check out his doors. Norm will have instructions waiting for you if you have doors to share, and he will have lots of links to a world (literally) of doors.
The photos in my Classic Gallery are mostly from a walk around our office. The photos are described in the captions. Click on any one image to enter the Jetpack Lightroom (technical name for a slide show). And, if my introduction caused you to think about that great song “I Know Where I’m Going” by The Judd’s, there’s a link to that under the gallery.
