Let’s skedaddle to Philadelphia for this week’s set of doors. Everyone wearing their masks? I picked out three I really liked, then realized that they’re all doubles and the first two are double doubles. They also have a great deal of stately gravitas. But what can you expect of a city founded in 1652 by the Quaker William Penn?

    Those are impressive doors! I particularly like the wrought iron gate.

  2. Nicely set up for two way traffic and social distancing – how did they know! πŸ™‚

  3. I like the first and second set best, but they’re all wonderful doors and entrances.

    I love doors – any size, shape, color. Enjoyed your wonderful photos of doors.

    I like the symmetry and wood color of the two doors in the last photo. With that round window above, it looks perfectly inviting.

    That second one looks like a high security set up. Maybe a bank. The wrought iron gate is fantastic.

    All three entrances here are impressive, Janet. It’s often difficult to capture structures so big, you did a good job. Architecture in Philadelphia is so beautiful.

    The first ones are so majestic that it’s impossible for me to objective. The columns just add to the stately feel of that entrance. I’m assuming it’s a museum or perhaps and important government building….

  11. Impressive doors. My favorite is the first one. Very interesting double doors.

  12. Beautiful doors, Janet. William Penn became a Quaker in Ireland in an area I lived in for many years. This was not with his father’s blessing. Interesting read about them hear: http://kinsalebeg.com/chapters/ferrypoint/ferrypoint.html#13
