Merrie Olde #ThursdayDoors

Back before COVID, my friends the Flemings visited our friend Andrea Gilbey in England. Being excellent friends, they made sure to take lots of pictures of doors, arches, fancy windows, and such for me.

Until I ever find another door to photograph, I’ll put these pictures in rotation with my other saved-for-emergencies pictures.

I don’t know where these are, although I can guess at some of them.

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.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about distant friends.

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 round corner door! You have a picture of a round corner door. That’s so cool. You have good friends. The other doors are beautiful, especially the door within a door, but the round corner was the best,

      I know! I was so excited by the round corner door! There’s a name for a door-within-a-door, I think, but I forget what it is.

        I had to look it up. According to the all powerful Oz (a-hem, google) it’s either a ‘wicket gate’ or a ‘speakeasy door’.

    Nice gifts from your friends! I love the round corner door, and the upper story room hanging over the roof line. One of my trips over there I was told to build out on the street you charged for the space, but people figured out they could go up and out and not be taxed more! Clever.
