CoryDoors Frontier #ThursdayDoors

I took Mom to the dentist, then walked around taking pictures. These are one set. The Frontier communications company has a nice little office building and, next to it, this industrial-looking big box. I loved the perspective, looking through it to the back lot, with the doors rolled up.

Lots of ghost windows.

For some reason, peeling paint just knocks me out. Here are a couple of shots that I love.

For some real doors, go to Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors link-up. Norm’ll have some stellar doors for you. Then you can click on the blue frog link at the end of his post and find links to doors all over the world!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about peeling paint.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hi. That brick wall with the white paint looks like a great piece of cover art!
    Imagine the book it would go with!

      Ooo! I’ll have to offer it to Leslie R. Lee for his next PACKAGED book! You HAVE read PACKAGED, haven’t you? Hmmm…. Maybe you’d better not. It’s disorienting. But fun! Brilliant!

    An interesting perspective indeed. Nothing like patterns in peeling paint to inspire the imagination, hey?

      I think it stems from my growing up in the oldest part of town. If you wanted to put up new wallpaper (this was when wallpaper was cheaper than paint) and decided to do it right and strip the old paper off, sometimes you’d end up with two inches of extra room all around and layers of different paper back to when the house was built. A form of Urban Archaeology.

    Peeling paint does it for me too. Textures, patterns, funky shadows depending on the light.
    Nice ones 🙂

      Thanks, Norm. I like the aesthetics and, as Jan said, the narrative.

    I got stuck after a first person thought:

    The only thing more slow and boring than watching paint dry is watching paint peel.

    And then my brain said I need a nap.

    I like the peeling paint, but I like the perspective in the first shot.

      I like that perspective, too, and the transition from bright light to shadow to bright.

    Wow, lots of people watching peeling paint! When do you find the time to find Thursday Doors to shoot? 😉

    Marian, don’t know why you had a 409 error in your reply to me last time but I hope it doesn’t happen again cause I don’t know how to fix it.
