Thursday Doors – Going Back

Have you ever been through a door that wasn’t there when you were going back to exit it?

It happened to me. It was back in 2017 when I first published a Thursday Doors post that included these doors.

Photo of a black opened door that shows a painting of two slightly jarred opened glass-panelled, white doors that look out on a white cat sat on a balcony that looks towards the sea

When I pressed the publish button, I was transported through the doors and could not get back.

The white cat was very friendly, but everything else wasn’t as it seemed.

Somebody mentioned who or whatever passed by me into my world when places got traded carried on with writing and publishing posts on my blog.

You may have thought it was me who left you a comment or two but was it?

Thankfully, when Terri Webster Schrandt posted ‘Going Back‘ as the theme for this week’s Sunday Stills prompt, who or whatever was here took up the challenge and got transported back through the doors.

I’m happy to say that I instantly found myself going back to where I should have been for the last four years.

My fingers are crossed that I won’t be going back through those doors when I push the publish button.

Did/Will you miss me?

This week’s doors are located in Hove, East Sussex, in the United Kingdom.

Have you ever come across doors that have transported you back to another time and another place?

What’s Life Like From The Inside? #SundayStills #photography

I’m delighted to be hosting the Sunday Stills photography challenge again while host Terri Webster Schrandt continues her blogging break.

This week’s theme: Inside.

When I took this photo a few weeks ago, I wondered if there would be any signs of life from the inside of a raindrop.

Life inside a raindrop

Look closely. What do you see?

I was surprised by what I saw. Small air bubbles inside each one. Does that mean there are signs of life inside every raindrop?

There were no signs of life inside this restaurant, but that doesn’t mean that life doesn’t exist inside empty places, does it? Who knows what kinds of life continues inside places that are empty of human life.

Are there any signs of life from the inside?

Yet inside some objects, there can be a whole lot going on without any signs of movement.

And you don’t always need to be inside to be inside something. Can you spot the circle of life and the people inside it on this photo?

Life from Inside a circle

For some, the best time to be inside is when it’s time for a nap.

One of Austin’s favourite places is being inside his bed.

What Do You Think Of When You Hear The Word Orange? #SundayStills #photography

I’m delighted to be hosting the Sunday Stills photography challenge for the next two weeks while host Terri Webster Schrandt continues her blogging break.

Sunday Stills photography challenge

This week’s theme: Orange.

What do you think about when you see or hear the word Orange?

A different type of orange tree

I always think about autumn when the word orange is mentioned. For me, orange is somewhere between a red hot summer, and a cool blue winter. Where does orange fall for you?

Food also comes to mind with the word orange, especially the fruit with the same name.

Freshly squeezed or ‘as you are?’

Other types of food are orange in colour — for example, pumpkins, which also remind me of autumn.

Pumpkin pie or Jack-o”lantern?

Talking of food, different shades of orange can also make food look fresh, mouthwatering and tasty.

How many fruits are orange?

How about putting our ‘themed’ colour with a food? Does the sound of orange cheese tempt you?

The cheese-mobile

Would our world look more appealing to visitors if it were a different colour?

The orange planet

Can you think of any inhabitants of our world that are orange?

This is the strangest, orange creature I’ve come across on my travels. It’s known as a Cone Monster. They seem friendly but are very territorial, so my advice is to keep your distance.

Please keep your distance!
