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.
Special Note: Before getting into my post, I want to mention to anyone who hasn’t already heard, that Thursday Doors is combining forces with Cee’s Thursday black and white challenge this week. The topic for her challenge .is doors and drawers. So, we’re going to welcome any participants of Cee’s challenge to join us, and I’d encourage any regulars at this challenge to take or modify some of your doors to link to her challenge.
Thursday Doors normally runs until noon Saturday. This week, we will accept doors from any of Cee’s participants for the week-long duration of her challenge. This extends to all participants to Thursday Doors, too. If you decide to join Cee’s challenge, feel free to link back here again. I will gather all links and add them to the Sunday Recap this week, and, as necessary, next week.
This weekend, for the first time since July 2019, the fire department in our little town is holding their Annual Carnival. Annual, as long as I’ve lived in this town, but cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid. It’s not a large carnival, but I am thrilled to feature every door I can find. Later today, I’ll be enjoying a sausage grinder (submarine sandwich, hoagie, etc.) with peppers and onions. I wash that down with a beer. It benefits the firemen, so I call it charity. Speaking of charity, I’m claiming doors, doorways, gates and openings through which people might pass as a door.
If things go according to plan, the firemen will host a parade on Saturday night, and I will be featuring firetruck doors next week.
First the black and white images:
