Welcome to Thursday Doors! This is a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos, drawings, or other images or stories from around the world. If you’d like to join us, simply create your own Thursday Doors post each (or any) week and then share a link to your post in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). If you like, you can add our badge to your post.
I am including some of the local houses in the area known as Old Wethersfield in the town of Wethersfield, Connecticut. I don’t have a lot of history to share about these houses, but that’s OK because I have some administrative issues to take care of.
First. I want to extend another round of thanks to Cee Neuner for sharing Thursday Doors as her Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge last week. Cross-links between the two challenges pushed us to a record number of participants, and an amazing number of wonderful doors.
I also want to announce that there will be a Second Annual Thursday Doors Writing Challenge. Last year’s inaugural challenge was well received, but I began the process a little late. The writing challenge will take place in May, but in order for that to happen, we need doors. So, today’s announcement is mainly for Thursday Doors participants.
You may recall that the challenge asks the writers, poets, authors, journalists, well, you get the picture, to choose an image of a door/doorlike object for inspiration. Last year, I think I gave people a week or so to choose a door to share. Given that selecting one door from the hundreds of doors most of our participants gather in a year is a daunting task, I thought it best to start early. I also think restricting people to a single image is a little harsh, especially since we had multiple writing entries last year. However, I do want to offer writing participants a finite number of images to choose from.
So, start thinking about two or three images you would be willing to share as inspiration. Remember, specific images, not entire libraries.
That’s it for the details. Now, I hope you enjoy the doors from Old Wethersfield and the doors linked in by our participants.
