More From England #ThursdayDoors

In the Before Times, people used to fly and visit each other in other countries. My friend and fellow writer Ginnie Fleming went to visit our friend and fellow writer Andrea Gilbey, and they took lots of pictures of doors for me. NATURALLY (we’re talking about ME, here), I didn’t make note of where they were. So — scavenger hunt! If you know where these pictures came from, tell us in the comments below.

Nice li’l door.

I like all the foofarah on the lower stories.

Is this Windsor? It kinda looks like Windsor. Or is it the Tower of London? Or what?

This one is inside, but that’s as much as I know.

Dig that crazy fornication! Yes: “originally ‘arch, vaulted chamber, a vaulted opening, a covered way,’ probably an extension, based on appearance, from a source akin toΒ fornusΒ “brick oven of arched or domed shape” — Online Etymology Dictionary

Thursday doors is under the direction of Dan Antion, photographer extraordinaire and critter daddy. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his directions, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone finds an intriguing picture with no context.



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.

    Your friend has a wonderful eye for doors. I like these a lot. I’ve only been to London once, and not for very long, so I’m no help. But I do like them (that counts for something…right?).

    Andrea tells me:
    1 – Forty Hall, Enfield.
    2 – Waltham Abbey church, Essex.
    3 – Trinity College, Cambridge.
    4 – Hatfield House, Hertfordshire, home of Elizabeth I. (spot this room in Enola Holmes!)
    5 – Liverpool Street Station, London.
    So now you know.
