NA Driving Doors #ThursdayDoors

That’s New Albany, not Not Applicable. Except I think one or more of these doors I photographed while driving might be in Louisville, so those would be Not Applicable to the title, which means New Albany.

ANYWAY, here they are, from my Sekrit Stash of door photos, kept for just such an occasion. I mean, not, obviously, a GLOBAL PANDEMIC, because I didn’t expect that, but I did expect there would be weeks when I wouldn’t be on any doorscursions. So.

This door is shy, but it IS visible.
This door is also shy, but visible. This is the Justice center, sporting columns from the old building.
This door is NOT shy!

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.

    A nice collection. I like that they saved the columns, but I wish they had incorporated them into the building. Maybe if I saw them in person I’d understand.

      The new building is flatly utilitarian. The columns tickle me, standing out all alone. They look like a bit of Ancient Roman ruins in the middle of an American Midwestern city.

    Oooh,I only saw the first door AFTER reading your comment, when I looked better πŸ™‚
    I have a whole post coming up in a couple of weeks with doors taken from a moving car πŸ™‚ but I was not driving.

    Lovely post πŸ™‚

      I usually don’t try to take pictures when I’m driving driving, but sometimes I do when I’m driving but stopped at a stop sign or red light, or when I can pull over or stop in the street with nobody behind me. I can barely take pictures from a MOVING car if I’m a passenger, so more power to you! πŸ˜€

        I wouldn’t attempt driving and taking pictures either πŸ™‚ Besides, around here you must drive in a residential area if you want to immortalize doors and these days there are lots of kids on the street.
        Maybe try taking pictures with a digital camera when in a moving car, not your phone? It has to do with the shutter speed, I think πŸ˜‰

          Oh, that makes sense! I have a digital camera, but one of the reasons I got a “smart” phone was so I wouldn’t have to carry a phone AND a camera in my 200-pound purse. My #4 daughter doesn’t even CARRY a purse; if it doesn’t fit in her pockets, she doesn’t have it. I asked her, “How can you go around with nothing on you? What if somebody needs a Bandaid? What if somebody needs hand lotion? Or earplugs? Or a pencil sharpener?” She said, “I don’t need all those things. YOU have all those things. Here–will you put this in your purse for me until we get home?”

            Sooo sweet! I know that very well… A different generation. Some things they can’t do without, some they can πŸ™‚ When we’re holidaying, I’m the one responsible πŸ™‚ for such items – and a few extras.
            When my son was little I used to carry at least a couple of die cast cars in my handbag. Emergency toys… I miss that πŸ™‚

            It is so convenient to take pictures with a phone, but I do know that if I want a good one I should be more patient πŸ™‚

    I want to say that I’m happy they thought to preserve them, but honestly those columns just look oddly out of place just standing there :-/
    You found an excellent corner door, and it leads into a bakery so that’s a bonus right there. Now just don’t get yourself arrested for drinking and driving, or photo-snapping and driving or…well, anything else for that matter πŸ˜‰

      Yes, Chief, no getting arrested! I remember you made us sign a no-bail waiver when we joined Thursday Doors. πŸ˜‰ The columns DO look odd, which is probably why I like them. πŸ˜€

    I think someone should sue the pandemic for interfering with our doorscursions and other scursions as well! Someone must pay. Isn’t that the lesson of the last month? Yes, I’m cynical. I admit it.

      I think the lesson of the past month is that the wrong people have been paying for about 400 years, and it’s about 400 years past time for that to stop.

        My comment wasn’t meant to be in any way a political comment. It was just laughing at how we haven’t been able to get out and take pictures of doors.

          You are so right! Sue the pandemic for descursioning us! Do we have any lawyers amongst the dooristas? Or would that be a conflict of interest? I’ve been binge-watching Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, and I know Saul Goodman would take the case. Saul Goodman would take ANY case, as long as he got paid.

      Isn’t it perfect? It almost makes my teeth hurt, just looking at the colors.

    Well done. Not easy easy to capture drive by shots like that. Love those big white pillars.
