The sort of doors that I’m likely to come across are those in a more rural and less populated setting. Basically, I’m not often found in areas where a lot more humans like to gather, build towns or cities and live fairly close to each other and therefore the exposure to fancy doors protecting the incumbents place of residence from the elements and world in general is limited.
However there are a good few doors around here that are protecting other buildings and providing access by humans occasionally. Namely agricultural barn doors. Not the modern hangar sized things for getting huge machinery, livestock or crops in and out but the human sized ones, used when farms were also more human.
Of course, things have moved on, so often these old buildings are often prettier than the functional doors they’ve been left with now. The buildings themselves are probably not used for the same purpose as they were built for but offer secure storage for a myriad of mysterious farmy things.
The one worry I have about having chosen to do some Thursday Doors is revealing itself as ‘not really thinking it through’. Eventually people are going to get tired of these sometimes old and sometimes not fancy doors and I’ll have to go to places there are people in to find more loved ones.
Anyway, I liked this one because it has a white (ish) door contrasting with an impenetrably dark window and there are a pleasing amount of regular man made geometric shapes, interrupted only by the little unruly amount of nature creeping in at the doorway. I accept that the door itself is nothing fancy.
And I like this next one because it shows that these are doors in buildings that are not used frequently now, some are left uncared for, unpainted and weathered and the nettles and all sorts of weeds and lichens take up residence. If you look really close there’s a snail, always a good addition to a barn or shed door.
