Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors, March 10

This week I was sorely tempted to use a door photo for ANOTHER challenge. I know!!

But I saved it, no matter how harmonious the first image might be and would suit my WPC: Har-money can’t buy post. This is a kind of photo that I’d swoon over if it was taken by somebody else, wish to live there or at least visit, and generally just feel thrilled to be able to view it. And now it’s mine.

The second photo is mom getting the feel of the doorspotting sport. Both were taken right here in Capalbio. As was the third, just on the sea side of it.

My three green doors for this week. Many many more taken. It was a busy week, not just door-wise.

Thursday Doors, March 3

Today, four brown doors and one gate.

From there, Ljubljana, Slovenia (1st image), via Roma (2nd and 3rd), to here, Capalbio (4th), and home (5th). Welcome, visitors, my two favourite women in the world. We’re going to have a wicked March 8.

Thursday Doors, February 25

Today I give you the unnecessarymost door in the world.

One would think that in a countryside like this there can’t be much happening doorwise, right?

And yet first there comes a gate that is not all that difficult to circumnavigate.

Parallel to this dirt track runs the railway. And what separates the two is this:

A heavily locked door cast into a fierce wall. Keeping the train away from the flowers.

Good-bye, door, but if you think you’re fooling anybody you need therapy.

Thursday Doors, February 11

Three doors from Monteverde, the Green Hill of Roma. A bit of competition, since Ljubljana in Slovenia, my hometown, was recently named European Green Capital 2016.

I pass these often as I walk bestia, and they always draw my eyes. There is always a car in front of the first one so I can’t get a better angle. There is often this nice light on the second one. And the third one… this photo might be my favourite door photo of them all.

Thursday Doors, February 4

I’ve been saving these since October. It was a good day.

First I descended down this stairway after purchasing four books and I encountered this door.

Then I was drawn to this door of the Church of Saint Susanna at the Baths of Diocletian.

And then amore, who was waiting outside with bestia, said: “Look, I found a little door for you to shoot.”

Which is how I tend to choose my doors, and images in general: not by the door itself, or by the quality of the image, but by how it makes me feel. Bear (with) me or feel with me.

Thursday Doors, January 28

Practically all these doors are only a few steps apart in Roma (except the first): you find them if you take Via della Lungaretta from the Belli tram 8 stop, first left to the first English book shop, and then right towards Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere (these church doors were covered in my Christmas edition of Thursday Doors) and the second English book shop. The true Trastevere door magic that happens then will be revealed in a Thursday to come.

Thursday Doors, January 14

What does one see first if one comes from the snow? The grass IS always greener over there if one travels south. Hail us who can choose.

Before leaving to Slovenia for New Year’s, I took my camera on a stroll around my home to capture some of the gates over here.

When I returned, I found myself standing in front of the last one because the light took me there.

And no matter how much I love Thursday Doors, I had to admit that it’s best when there is no door.

Thursday Doors, December 31

I pass this house daily on my walk towards the station. This is how I like my doors: sunlit, welcoming, inhabited, guarded by a beastie, with star-powered fairy vehicle pot parking. I wish Norm who hosts the Thursday Doors challenge and everybody who shares this sphere with me just such a year ahead. Cin cin!

Thursday Doors, December 17, and CFFC – Windoors

Even though I don’t like to combine challenges, today calls for an exception. There is only so much doors one can post in a week, and we know it’s on Thursday for Norm. Cee is asking for windows too, so this is for both.
