CoryDoors – Brave Bricks #ThursdayDoors

I don’t take the route past this house often, but I love it when I do. I’ve been wanting to share photos of it for a long time. I seem to have picked a good day to snap it, though I didn’t know that until I looked at the pictures later.

This is part of my Driving Doors series, so the pictures tend to be lopsided and with bits of my car in, sometimes.

This is the only house in this style I’ve ever seen in Corydon. I think it’s gorgeous.

An attempt to show the door revealed proudly flying rainbow flags.

A shot of their wonderful garden gate shows a light for Joey, two arched entries, that iron gate, a Little Free Library, and more Pride flags.

That makes them proud, but what makes them brave? They live two doors down from a house with a Confederate battle flag in the window, a house of which I did NOT take a picture.

Whoever the people in the brick house are, I love them with all my heart.

Thursday Doors is the brainchild of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his directions, and enter a world of doors.

    Great photos for drive-by shots, Marian. I know how difficult it is to get a clear picture from the car.

      I must admit, I pulled over for these, since I could. Most of my car photos, even the ones I park for, come out cockamamie.

    That is a lovely house. I’m sure the inside has some interesting nooks and crannies what with that kinda L design.
    Hopefully those almost neighbors play nice and everyone gets along.
    Here’s to accepting people as they are…except those who are assholes towards others; I can never accept assholes 😀

    Oh, I love the brick, the balcony, and their garden gate! Let’s hope they can both fly their flags, and colors and be accepted for who they are and live in harmony.

      Lovely thought, but I must confess, I don’t accept White Supremacists for who they are. I have an idea of where they can put their Confederate battle flag, and it isn’t in their window. You’re a much nicer person than I am. HUGS

    I share your love and admiration for the owners of that house. Great light, great gate!
    That balcony is sweet, and I do so love narrow windows.

      Every time I drive through there, I think, “I would like to own that brick house and the house across the street. So I could live in the brick house, and I could run over into the other one and look across the street at the pretty house.”

    Hi Marian,
    I’m with you 100%, that house is beautiful! It has so much charm and I can only image what those walls have seen over the years. I’d love to have a tour of the old place! Thanks so much for sharing these images and your thoughts, much appreciated!

      All I know about the house is that it was “flipped” a few years ago, so it probably doesn’t look like it did when it was built. Or–since I don’t know–I can imagine it was restored to its original charm. 🙂
