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.

Shipshape – Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

This weeks Challenge asks us to:

“focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.”

So here is a shot taken during our visit to the Viking Ship Museum at Roskilde, during our recent trip to Copenhagen.
