Thursday Doors: 21st Sept 2017 – #photography

After a short break, one of my favourite bloggers, Norman Frampton, is back in the world of blogging, Norm has appeared on my blog as a guest blogger. You can read the post by clicking here. I’m celebrating his return with an entry to his popular Thursday Doors photography feature.

What’s Thursday Doors? It’s a fantastic photography challenge with the theme of, you’ve guessed it, Doors! Check out the details by clicking here.

Without further ado, I’m going (just about) all wooden with my doors this week. These doors were all found in the quaint little medieval town of Burford, which is in the Cotswolds in southern England.

Does this first door look as if it’s been boarded up from the inside? I wonder what the occupants are trying to keep out?

Can you spot the jagged join in this door?

This next door has a shinney new lock. I wonder if the occupants can see out through that foggy glass? Maybe it’s one-way glass?

This door looks newer than the others. At least the occupants don’t have far to walk to post their mail.

And last, but by no means least, this small door which even I’d have to bend my head to go through.

Can you spot the one door which is not wooden?

  1. Hi, Hugh – Great ‘Thursday Doors’ post. I had viewed it earlier but thought that there must be a ‘twist’ to the answer so I gave it some time before I commented. I now see that there was a big twist. Well done!

  2. I really like the frosty glass one. As you said, how cool would it be if its a one way window – great for keeping tabs on anyone who’s passing by. That little door would be perfect for me since I am so short. They all look wooden, Hugh. Perhaps its the glassy one…

        1. lol, I’m not so sure, Mabel. I think I’d have a ‘Samantha Fox’ moment. She presented The Brits many years ago and became a laughing stock after it. I think it was a case that she did very little rehearsal.

  3. They’re all so beautiful, Hugh, and set in the stone homes with the greenery, they’re magical as well. My favorite is the old one with the jagged joining. I love that! I have no idea which one isn’t wood. I’m going to guess The Gryphon House, since it doesn’t show any weathering. 🙂

  4. That’s a great collection of doors! I love wooden – and not so wooden – doors. Maybe the door of the Little House is not made of wood, but of a wood-like material?

  5. Aha! You are so clever, Hugh, to trick us with the metal post door. That photo is my favorite with the beautiful door, bright metal post, and lovely flowers. I have been to the cotswold’s and adored its charm. You have opened the door to my memories of that trip and made me want to take up the door photo challenge.

    1. I hope you do take up the Thursday Doors challenge, Molly. It’s a fun challenge and great for meeting other bloggers.

      Glad to hear I opened up that door to those memories of that trip to the Cotswolds. It’s a beautiful part of the world. I especially like to visit during December when all the little towns are dressed up for the festive season. A great place to hunt for those unusual Christmas presents.

      1. Oh, that must be beautiful to see those villages dressed up in Christmas finery! I hope you take some photos. I will be on the lookout for unusual doors, probably with a twist of humor. Or twisted humor, more likely. 😉

  6. Interesting perceptions Hugh. The first door you think is boarded up, maybe someone hiding. To me, it looks like a door that perhaps had been sanded down and the inside panels had yet to be painted? Interesting how we see things differently. 🙂

  7. Great set of doors, Hugh. I like the jigsaw design of the second and the window in the third that looks as if it might suck you into another dimension. Thursday Doors is probably my favorite of all challenges out there and Norm does a great job as ambassa-door.


  8. Great fun post, Hugh! I had not guessed the correct one either. They all looked like wood to me but didn’t think of the postal door. Good one! I love doors – they are all so different especially in Europe. They have class and sophistication in the old world way. Here in the USA most doors look alike. LOL!

  9. Awesome collection Hugh! Thanks for joining us and for the wonderful shout-out as well 🙂
    I’m going to guess that the 4th one is not wood. It has a bit of a shiny look that makes me think it might be some sort of moulded thermo-plastic.
    I’ve heard (and seen) nothing but wonderful things about the Cotswolds – I do hope to visit there one day.

    1. It’s a beautiful part of the UK, Norm. We’ve stayed there several times. On this visit, we were on our way to collect Austin, our new Cardigan Corgi Puppy. A stay over in the Cotswold was the perfect stopover. It’s also a very dog-friendly place, with most of the shops having no problems in you taking in your dog while you browse. I can recommend the cream teas as well. 😀
      As for the odd door out, I’m afraid the fourth door was made of wood.

      1. I’m now wondering how you checked.
        “Knock knock.”
        ‘Can I help you?’
        ‘I’m just checking if your door is made of wood.’
        ‘Because I’d like to photograph it.’
        ‘Marlene, let the dog out.’
        “Bark. Woof. Growl. Grrrrr”
        ‘I only wanted a photo!’

        1. lol, Fortunately for me, there was nobody at home, and I never heard a ‘bark’or a Growl (well apart from the growl my partner was making as I stopped every few seconds to take photos of doors). 😀
