    The gate in the last photo calls to me. I like the circles at the top. They remind me of the circles on the background of your blog. Pretty.

    These are great. I like that simple wooden door in the brick enclosure. Its size and color are perfect, and although it’s a simple door, it gives the space an elegant touch.

    Nice collection of doors. Also a nice choice for A to Z.

  4. Ease of access for HUMANS is even more important. As a person who currently uses a walker, I find doors EVERYWHERE are impossible to open easily, have small and dangerous lips or steps or thresholds, and are too heavy.

    Few have the button available AND WORKING that opens the door. The button itself is usually hard to push.

    It is often easier to stay home, because SOMEWHERE – like yesterday at the hospital ON the ONLY way to cardiac rehab – there will be a door which I can’t open easily. The bathrooms with accessible stalls will often have these doors, so you can’t get in! The one in the lobby of the local rehab facility has a handicapped stall – and the stiffest, heaviest door I’ve run up against (literally) lately.

    Take a mile of accessible pathway from Point A to Point B. Put two steps in the middle. You have now rendered the entire mile inaccessible. I should not have to point this out! The world is a sea of barriers.

    Nicely done. I was wondering how you were gonna get this to sync with your A-Z, not that I ever doubted you of course 😉

  6. Sometimes function is everything. I like the door with the brick wall. I feel as though there might be a tiny but lovely patio there or a very secret little patio garden (although the sunshine might not get in there too well.

    Doors like the gate in your last photo make me curious about what’s on the other side. One of the aspects of Thursday doors that I like is the curiosity and wonder about what’s behind some of the doors…the furnishings, architecture and people.

    What is it about doors that just draws the eyes? I have a lithograph from Germany that has been reprinted for a hundred years, that’s how popular the image is!

    The idea that a door could go beyond something to open and close, and a protection of intruders developed since I have been looking at Thurs. doors. Pity that the towns around me do not share that fancy idea:) You did well today with the functional doors:):)

  11. I like the last one the best as the others are a little too plain! 🙂

    All are great doors which we don’t get enough of the utilitarian styles, I liked the brick home (townhouse?) with a garage below it and the black rod iron gate! Beautiful choices a true departure from the norm. (Ha ha, Norm! 😀 )
