Thursday doors…Tlaquepaque revisited

I had occasion not long ago to take my parents to Sedona, Arizona and time to kill while they went about their business. I headed back to the lovely shopping area of Tlaquepaque, where I thought I’d relax and look around. I also ended up finding some Christmas presents and a great pair of earrings for myself, so that worked out well. Of course Tlaquepaque also has some doors and gates worthy of including in a Thursday Doors post, but I had to be careful not to include any I’d used in a previous post.

Simplicity is the key here.

This door was not only interesting to look at, but made for a photo that needs a second look. There’s a bit of reflection, but you can also see straight through the gallery to the courtyard on the other side.

I asked permission to take a doorfie of the safe. What’s around it isn’t attractive, but I did love the door. I had a good time looking around, the only irritating moment being after I’d stood, social distanced, in a line to get what sounded like herbal iced tea to go, only to find that it was actually flavored black tea. I have nothing against black tea; in fact, I drink it often. But by mid-afternoon, I eschew caffeine, so ended up walking away empty-handed. However, I did have doors, Christmas gifts, some beautiful shells (bought, obviously, not found), and a relaxing couple of hours mostly outdoors surrounded by beautiful landscaping and buildings.

    What neat doors. I like that first door very much.

  3. Ally Bean says:

    The safe door is cool. I visited Sedona once. It was delightful. I wonder if I shall ever get that way again? [Rhetorical question.]

  4. Norm 2.0 says:

    Excellent finds! I love the twist of the ‘modern’ keypad on that old safe.

  5. scooj says:

    Three really interesting doors, a very nice selection.

    Love Sedona -a city/town where many artist lives (and therefore expensive to live, lol). That first door is so cute and distinctive. Great you ran into some doors while waiting:)
    By the way I have written you another email. Feel free to get back to it any time. Hope that the subject line did not scare you off -I did it for myself, so I can put a star in front of it in the inbox. I keep track of the stars. The others ….whenever or if I get to it.

    • Just responded, Jesh. Thanks for the reminder. I sometimes get behind on return emails.

      Sedona is lovely IF you have the money and IF you have interests that you can find there, such as art or being in the outdoors. My parents lived there for a few year after my dad retired, but they didn’t have much to do there and really like the Phoenix area much better.

    Excellent collection. The safe door is very neat!

  8. You call this simplicity, but there are really volumes of information in the details. I love it when you can really zoom in on all of that, free from extraneous noise. I’m also a big fan of the accidental self portrait!

  9. Teresa says:

    Love that first door with the lamp on the side…perfect!

  10. Nice to have an outing. It’s lovely indeed!

    • It’s a shopping area, but very nice and a place you can just go and relax a bit if you like. And yes, having an outing is quite enjoyable, more so these days than usual.


  11. Wonderful selection. Thank you for sharing them. Sedona is indeed just wonderful.

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