Menace to Navigation #ThursdayDoors

Welcome to another death-defying display of photographs I took while driving. That means slowing down as much as traffic would allow, pointing my phone and clicking, and hoping for the best.

This first one is the best, even though it looks like I shouldn’t have been driving. I assure you, I was stone cold sober. Here’s a house in my beloved Storybook Style, with two — count ’em, TWO — catslide roofs (rooves?).

This one, although two doors are visible, I really took for the keystone windows. Love them babies!

There is a door in there, but it was the roofline that caught my eye.

I’m not even pretending this is about a door, unless you consider entrance posts as doors. I just love the look of this entrance to Audubon Park, which is not a park, but a residential area.

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.

    I like your first photo. It looks like the opening shot for a horror film. What lurks within that house!

    While I should chastise you for photo-while-driving, I’m guilty of it myself. Though, I much prefer to pull over and snap about a thousand and one shots, my son is not a fan. You did manage to find some extraordinary structures! I liked the first one and last one best–they seemed to have stories to tell. And you made me look up key-stone windows as I was unfamiliar with them.

      I’m very careful when I photo-while-driving. I do pull over sometimes, but if I don’t, or don’t just stop if there’s nobody behind me, I slow wa-a-a-a-ay down and snap without looking and hope for the best.

        I actually snapped a picture of a funny voting-related bumper sticker…and then it struck me that was a stupid way to die and I stopped trying to get a non-blurry copy. I’m hoping Darwin would approve my eventual good sense.

    Nice drive-by’s, Marian. I’ve been known to take photos while driving, albeit almost always on the highway and taking great care that a) no other cars are nearby and b) that I have one hand on the wheel and am not looking away from the highway. Thank goodness for “delete!”

      I know, right? I’ve taking more pictures of bushes, trees, and telephone poles than I have doors. lol

        Maybe we should start a challenge for delete-able (vs. delectable) drive-by shots and put all our misfit photos there. 🙂

            Of course you’d only pick the best of the worst…or maybe the worst of the worst, who knows? 🙂

    I know you said you slow down to take these photos, but I certainly got a feeling of high speed driving as I scrolled through your photos! This looks like it would be a pleasant place for a late afternoon stroll 🙂

      Ha! No, no high speed. It’s like movie magic, isn’t it, where the bear is cuddling the actor and Sound Effects puts in all these growls and snarls and gasps. 🙂

    Wow, all of this drive-by dooring is making me dizzy 😀
    Kidding aside you come across some pretty fancy building during your outings.

      You and my fellow dooristas have sharpened my eye for them. 🙂
