When I first noticed the street art on the wall in the photo below, it was the door next to the painting that caught my attention a lot more.
Blue! I love blue. But this shade of blue spoke to me. It was as if the door was inviting me to walk through into a different world – another time, another place.
The tiled floor that the door opened onto, almost matched the colours on the street art. And I wondered if the blue panel above the door is a sheet of glass that was painted the same colour as the door.
The two figures in the street art called out my name several times, but I declined their invitation to join them by walking through the door. I decided that the time and place I was currently in is right for me. I’m not ready to move on yet.
If you saw the last two doors I published for ‘Thursday Doors’, the ‘Open, Sesame!‘ door and the door to ‘The Tower Of The Ecliptic‘, the ‘Another Time, Another Place’ door is only a ten minute walk from them.
All the doors in my last three ‘Thursday Doors’ posts are located in Swansea, South Wales, in the United Kingdom. You can check them out further down on this post.
Would you have accepted the invitation from the figures in the street art to walk through the blue door to another time and another place?

You do find beautiful doors for your stories Hugh. The artwork is gorgeous. 🙂 x
This was a lucky find, Debby. I don’t think the artwork is all that old, but it looked very weatherworn. I’m not surprised given that I live in the wettest city in the UK.
very cool art and door connection (but are there really hundreds of others jointing in on this challenge – I did not realize it had gotten that big and assumed it was maybe close to 100 – not that it matters but was not sure )
Since I first participated in Thursday Doors, all the way back in 2014, I’ve seen hundreds of bloggers participate. You’ll have to ask Dan (the current host) how many participate each week, but he never fails to get many people to join in. It’s a great way of meeting and interacting with other bloggers with similar interests.
got it! and yes – it is truly in the hundreds as people come and go and some only participate once in a while whereas others are weekly!
so thanks for the reply on that and wishing you a good weekend Hugh
I participate when I can but enjoy the challenge of photographing doors whenever I’m out and about.
You’re welcome. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
And your comment reminds me of why I like the door challenge – because when so many share doors (when out and about) we really get this culture sharing) and my Weekend is going well – the mild September weather has sweetens the hours 😉
what an intriguing door
Didn’t you at least pop your head in to have a wee look? I think I’d have done that but wouldn’t have stepped through. Those characters don’t look very trustworthy, especially the one in the forefront.
No, I didn’t trust those figures in the painting, Mary. If I had gone through, I think I’d ended up in a two-dimensional world where all the doors were locked.
Love the door colour, and yes, if walking through that door gets me to Venice…make way!
I hope you get to return to assure me it’s safe to walk through that doorway. I’ve been to Venice, and it’s what I call a ‘gobsmacking’ city.
Venice is a wonder, isn’t it? Exceeds every expectation, a city built on dreams. Can’t wait to go back 🙂
I love that blue also and the wall art is great, too.
Thanks, Janet. I think I stumbled upon a great find.
Those arched doorways and figures reminded me of the Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn movie Charade. The shootout scene at the end.
I don’t recall seeing that movie, but I’ll certainly look it up.
It a Hitchcock movie – lots of twists and turns – I think you would like it.
If it’s Hitchcock, I’ll be sure to watch it.
Whilst intriguing, I’m with you Hugh, I wouldn’t trust either of these characters. I wonder what that may say about our personalities!
Probably a lot, Paul. I’ve seen too many scary movies to trust characters who appear in street art.
I think that the door leads to a bakery that only serves blue pastries with a side of blue coffee 😉
I’m not sure I’d like blue coloured coffee, but blue icing on top of pastries get a thumbs-up from me.
Welcome to Venice! While I am a curious person, I will not step through your door, Hugh. I’m quite happy with the place, life, and times I am living in. I would, however, not mind having a glimpse, as long as I can return to the here and now.
I’m not sure I’d trust those two figures in the street art to allow you to come back, Liesbet. It’s why I never looked any further beyond that door.
How wonderful! I love blue too so yes, I would accept the invitation. Those doors look alluring.
I loved the colour, Miriam. Not seen a door in that colour since.
IT would be hard not to at least poke my had through that door, Hugh. Maybe step inside if it wasn’t too private a place. I love blue doors, and that artwork is welcoming.
Thanks for joining us again at Thursday Doors!
I should have done just that, Dan. However, the dark side of my creative mind stepped in while I studied those figures.
Hahaha – sometimes having an imagination works against us.
