Besides beautiful old buildings and doors, Pasadena has classic gates. Let’s take a quick look.

“There are so many doors to open. I am impatient to begin.” –Charlie Gordan”― Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon

“Either you enter the interesting gates and experience interesting things or you stand behind the gates and sit cowardly!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up someone. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

for Thursday Doors

  1. I love gates not only because they are their own unique class of doors, but their craftsmanship makes you stop, look, and admire. 🙂

    Oh – loved the gates you photographed. The quotes were very true. A very nice post indeed. If we don’t walk through the gates and explore, we will miss some wonderful adventures.

  3. Teresa says:

    Lovely gates.

  4. Sue says:

    Great craftsmanship!

  5. Ally Bean says:

    The last gate is different from any I’ve seen before. I like it, so beautiful.

  6. lolaWi says:

    beautiful gates!

  7. I love gates even more than doors, I think, and I especially enjoyed the quotes you pulled to go with these.

  8. Norm 2.0 says:

    All of them are lovely. There’s a craftsmanship and artistic ability that goes into iron gates like these that I find is generally under-appreciated. It really isn’t easy and takes a long time to learn how to do this type of work.
    Thanks for sharing these 🙂

    The gates are beautiful, and I love the Letter Box at 110 !

    Such craftsmanship on display. Iron gates fascinate me.

    • I knew you and Norm would especially appreciate these and the workmanship involved. I really like letter/mail boxes like these, even though they wouldn’t look good everywhere. Here a number of boxes are together in a large metal box along the street. We have a key to unlock our box and get the mail. The mailman only has to get out and fill the boxes rather than stop at each house.

  10. I love your quotes and doors. I think I like Daniel Keyes’ best and the last door, hiding behind tree 🙂

  11. Those are beautiful gates, and wonderful quotes to go with them.

  12. Beautiful. I love how dramatic these doors look. That tree on the last one is gorgeous! And I like that quote you chose, also read that book many years ago.

  13. Beautiful gates and lovely quotes. Have a nice weekend!

  14. The last one is my favourite. Love the design of the gates and the tree in front. Plus it’s set in an arch. Perfect
