Thursday Doors…plus de portes de Colmar

After an excellent lunch, it’s always good to take a walk.  Because we’re here during the week, there are slightly less tourists than usual, so let’s be thankful for that.  But you still have to be careful not to suddenly stop when you see just the right door (or a great patisserie.)  You might get rear-ended.

Old churches often have great doors and these first two prove that rule.

Sidewalk seating is always nice, but on a hot day, the sunny side of the street isn’t as attractive, at least until evening.

Doorscursion Central is found in Montreal on Norm’s site.  You can visit, participate, or both.  Just click on the highlighted link which will be live once I get up and link my post.  Happy Thursday!

  1. Oh, nice finds! I really love the contrast of the stark silver ironwork against the warm wood doors themselves.

    • Hardware can make such a difference, can’t it, Hannah? Thanks for visiting and commenting. It’s always appreciated. Have a terrific Thursday.

  2. Such beautiful doors!

  3. Sheree says:

    Handsome selection of doors!

  4. They certainly don’t make doors like they used to. Your historic collection is magnificent.

    • Hey, nice to see you, Lisa (so to speak.) I always stock up on doors photos when I’m in France and in Philadelphia. 🙂 Thanks for popping in!


  5. Beautiful hardware, and very nice photography

  6. Amy says:

    Love the tone of this arch door. Well captured, Janet!

  7. I want to go to Colmar now 🙂 Lovely doors!

    • The historic part of Colmar is well worth a visit, even with tourists (which we were as well.) I’m happy you enjoy it with me, at least a tiny, tiny bit of it.

    I love the golden light on all of these and the decorative hinge plates on that last one are stunning. Excellent finds Janet 🙂

  9. Su Leslie says:

    Love that second door in particular Janet.

  10. JT Twissel says:

    Wow, those hinges are just amazing. It looks like (from the lighting) you were there at twilight.

  11. dimlamp says:

    Beautiful doors.

  12. Those first set of doors look wide enough for a carriage to enter through them!

    The hardware on the second is amazing. Good doorscursion and walk!

  13. Joanne Sisco says:

    The hardware on the second door is exquisite!! While the last door would have stood out on its own, the 2nd one steals the show.

  14. marianallen says:

    Fabulous finds! The ironwork on that second door is stunning! As, I am sure, was that sun.

    • Right now I’d love to have some of the sun, as we’re getting more rain today. Yes, the ironwork is wonderful and much of what makes the doors special.


  15. Love the church doors. Fewer people is always good for taking photos. =)

  16. Robert says:

    Such detail in those wooden doors!

  17. Historic doors win out over modern every day of the week.
