Fit for a King – #ThursdayDoors: April 25, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  This week I have chosen a photo of a door I took when we visited Denmark.  It is the Kings door at Roskilde Cathedral.  The only way to walk through this door is by exiting after a wedding, funeral or confirmation. To enter though this door you need to be royal. Made by Peter Brandes and installed in 2010, The decorations represent the 12 disciples.

Dupath door – Thursday Doors: April 18, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  So for this week I have chosen a photo of a door I took last year on a visit to Dartmoor, at Dupath well.

And just so you have a little context to the image.

Illuminating door – Thursday Doors – March 28, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  So for this week here is a door from the Cathedral at Amiens.

And the same set of doors taken at night when all of the carving was illuminated by a light show.  It was truly magical to see.

Two for the price of one – Thursday Doors – March 7, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors, I have been going back over some photos of a trip to the Outer Hebrides.  So here is a picture from within one of the Norse Mill buildings on the Isle of Lewis, looking out of the doorway, at the door of the other building.

Brougham – Thursday Doors – February 28, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors, I thought I would play along this week with what is probably one of my favorite doors.  The Door at Brougham Hall in Cumbria.  The fact that it is my favorite probably has a lot to do with that knocker!
