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

  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. Sue says:

    Great craftsmanship!

  4. Ally Bean says:

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

  5. lolaWi says:

    beautiful gates!

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

    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.

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

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

  11. 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.

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

  13. 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

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