Still No Doors

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.

That’s the standard Reusable Block opening for Thursday Doors, but we remain on hiatus this week. Of course, some people ignore my suggestion to take a break, and I can support that by being here. I do have some IMPORTANT NEWS today.

Tomorrow is the final day to submit an entry for the Thursday Doors Badge Contest. We don’t have many entries, but rules being rules, the schedule will remain in force. If you want the information on the contest, it’s all listed in this post. The bottom line:

  • Design a badge
  • Post it on your blog
  • Let me know by posting a comment on any post on my blog
  • If you don’t have a blog, email your badge to me (noFacilities at gmail dot com)

Because I really don’t like seeing the blank stare entry on my home page when I have no pictures, I’m including a few of my earliest doors in a small gallery today.

I’ll be here on Saturday, but if you’re not, I wish you all the best in the New Year!

If you like magical realism with suspense, action and a bit of family sarcasm, you will enjoy these books:

The Evil You Choose
When Evil Chooses You

  1. Admit it Dan, you’re a door addict! And so are we who are commenting! 🥴

    Love the sinking garage. It’s still classy, and both entrances on the Elm Grove Chapel are eye catchers. The gatehouse at Melrose Cemetery is definitely unique. It looks like it was lopped off of the top of a castle and plunked there.

    Nice little year end tour Dan.

    See ya Saturday!

    • I don’t think there was ever any doubt, Ginger. I know someone will have a doors post today (there is one out there, but he doesn’t link here). I thought these might be some that very few people had seen.

      The gate house has slit openings like the ones castles had for archers to shoot through. It’s a cemetery! What would they be protecting?

      I hope you have a good end of the week. I’ll be here on Saturday.


  2. Great photos, Dan. I know I’ve missed a lot of posts through the holidays, but I’m easing my way back in. :) Yours is always a blog I enjoy visiting. The mortuary chapel looks like a child’s playhouse. :)
