Floral – #ThursdayDoors: May 30, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  I love the ironwork on the hinges on this one.

Old in new – #ThursdayDoors: May 23, 2019

Each week Norm asks that we post images of Doors.  I particularly liked the fact this old wooden door was set in a brightly painted frame with a neon lit sign above.

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.

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.
