Thursday Doors…back to Basel

For yesterday’s Photo Challenge, I revisited Basel, Switzerland.  While waiting for our flight the next day, we were blessed to meet Claudia, a fellow blogger who lives in Basel and was happy to show us around her lovely city for an afternoon.  My favorite part was wandering the streets of the non-tourist areas, seeing the very old, but well-kept buildings and, of course, doors, although this was well before I joined Thursday Doors. Oh, all the doors I missed!  🙂  I’ve featured some of the Basel doors here before, but here are a few more for your enjoyment.

Two doors, but not Tudors…

    You managed to get some nice ones, Janet. I know that feeling, though. When you see a picture today, that you took years ago and realize “there’s a door right behind that bush…” Oh, if we only knew 🙂

  2. msgt3227 says:

    Those are some truly wonderful doors!

    impressive Janet!!

  4. Laura says:

    I like the knocker on the first door. Great photos 🙂

  5. ianbcross says:

    Staid, solid and Swiss, these doors. Apart from the gates, of course.

  6. My love of doors didn’t become a conscious thing until you started posting photos of them. And now I notice them consciously and love them all the more. Thank you! I especially love the doors of European buildings. The creation of beautiful, strong, sturdy doors (and buildings) seems to be an art that was forgotten in the long-ago migration to the US. Every once in awhile here, I’ll notice a door worth pausing for.

  7. I like the scrolled doors in the second photo, Janet. What an entryway!

    That garage, or driveway, or whatever, that thing is GORGEOUS! 😀

    Isn’t it fun to meet another blogger? I did so in Holland. Love these doors, Janet. Especially the wrought iron gate – regal! And the garage door (I assume) is pretty unusual! Great post!

    • Thanks, Jesh. I’ve been fortunate to meet about 10 and it’s so much fun. I hope to meet more in the future.

      • jesh stg says:

        My goodness! You must travel a lot then?

      • Three live in or around Philadelphia, where our younger daughter went to are school. One I met while my husband was at a conference in San Francisco, several more at a writer’s conference. One we met in France several years ago. I travel more than some, but not as much as I’d like. 🙂


  10. Beautiful doors. Janet. 🙂

  11. Joanne Sisco says:

    I’m going to start thinking of you as Queen of the Pun 🙂

  12. Norm 2.0 says:

    That first one has some wonderful detailed carving in it, and it’s huge too. Nice shots Janet 🙂

  13. I love Basel. We were able to spend only about half a day there. I would love to go back! Wonderful doors!

  14. dimlamp says:

    That first one is lovely.

  15. Those are some DOORS in the bottom photo. 🙂

  16. Hihi, funny. Tudors or not Tudors.

  17. Candy says:

    Great doors. And that last building is stunning!

  18. That first door is fabulous, Janet. It has everything, including ironwork and a lovely pillar. I know what you mean about having missed lots of doors. When I was in Budapest and Lisbon I photographed lots of wonderful old buildings but only took shots of a few doors – and they have soooo many. It was before Thursday Doors, though, so I wasn’t really on the lookout. 😦

  19. Oh the first and last doors are lovely! Great finds!

  20. jazzytower says:

    A nice collection Janet:) Especially love that first one.

  21. marianallen says:

    ~gasp~ that gate! Those doors! That painted wall! What a wonderful collection of finds! Wow, that last one just knocks me out!

  22. Liked your door shots but loved your captions, more!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
