Thursday Doors

Today on a visit to Baltimore we happened by the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens on the southwest side of Druid Hill Park. Amazing is what comes to mind first. Built in 1888 it was an honor to be able to stand in the footsteps of such a magnificent building and check out these historic doors. I’ll be writing more about this adventure soon.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature by Norm 2.0 allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world.

  1. I had a look at ‘Thursday doors’; fascinating but if I contributed to it then it would be rarely as I’d probably only resurrect my ‘door project’ on film. Yours are certainly superb.
    My project was a very brief photo ‘love affair’ with doors but it got put on the back burner with my classic/film cameras blog. If you’re interested here’s a post I did to keep the idea alive:

    I was amazed to see I posted this about 6.1/2 years ago!
    Of course as someone interested in things vintage the cameras might interest you too. Do you ever sell any?

    • I only occasionally contribute to the Thursday Door prompt. Yesterday’s doors were just too wonderful to not share. I do love a good vintage camera and sold a few of them last month in Round Top Texas. It’s one vintage item I am aways on the lookout to find.

    • Finally got a chance to check out your door pics. Fabulous! I first started noticing doors as an indicator of a building’s personality in the late 1990’s when we were in Ireland and I saw a poster of the doors of Ireland. The lovely thatched cottages all had different colored doors giving their cottage a distinctive look and a little personality. Ever since, I notice doors. Sadly not always when I can stop and take photos. But, I know I will continue to notice doors.
