Thursday doors…Pasadena 1

What’s a good activity during Covid while visiting a daughter and her husband in southern California? Let’s grab some coffee, then go walking in a neighborhood filled with elegant homes. Caffeine, exercise, good company, and doors. What’s not to like? There should be lots of doors, which means handing off my coffee regularly so I can take photos. What I didn’t take into account is that in such a neighborhood everyone has gates and many doors are too far away for my phone camera. However, here are some of the doors I did get and you’ll be getting gates at some point.

Decked out for Christmas.

This is the quintessential California look, don’t you think, and it looks more livable to me.

If you took away the house around it, this would make a marvelous door for a mausoleum, don’t you think?

    Wow – loved all of the doors. Guess my favorite is the first one.

  2. Dan Antion says:

    Seeing decorated doors in California, or anywhere where it’s still green always seemed odd, but these are very nice doors. You’re so right about the last one. That might be a little creepy to come home to. For future reference, I love gates, just in case.

  3. The last door looks so grand!

  4. I always thought Pasadena would be a cool city, but I never got to go. Thanks for the doors. It was a treat. Hugs.

    • It’s a great city and has some amazing homes. The area where we walked was filled with enormous houses on large grounds. Fun to look at but I always wonder who really needs and uses houses that big. πŸ™‚ Thanks for dropping in again, Teagan.

  5. Kate Lester says:

    Almost a symbiotic relationship: you get to admire the homes and decorations and they get to pay the taxes and upkeep.

  6. restlessjo says:

    Seldom understated in Pasadena? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  7. Those are truly some palatial doors! I can only imagine the treasures just on the other side.

    • The houses that went with them and the other homes were palatial as well; fun too look at but to overwhelming for me. The people with large families who could use all that space couldn’t afford it. πŸ™‚

  8. Natalie says:

    Very nice selection of doors. I like the first one. I’m visiting from Dan’s Thursday Doors.

    Great you were able to spend some time in good ole’ Pasadena! Did I ever tell you (probably not) it was in Pasadena, that I started painting in the church services? Love these doors. Looking at them and their lovely frame, it’s telling how much I am still craving for Californian culture!

    • I don’t think you told me that. πŸ™‚ There are lots of things I like about California but not enough to balance the things I don’t like. So it’s nice I can visit and enjoy the former without dealing with (much) of the latter. πŸ™‚

      • Junie-Jesh says:

        Yes, I hear you. Some of those things turned into relief when we passed the Texan border. But I do miss some of the most awesome friends, and my daughters families of course.

  10. Teresa says:

    One is a house and the other two looks like mansions…am I right?

  11. Pretty fancy doors! And taxes to go with them! Ha Ha!

  12. They’re all really nice doors. I agree with your thoughts on the last door. It’s very grand and would work for mausoleum. Wow, that the first time I’ve written or spelled mausoleum!

  13. Very elegant homes, Janet. That last one is definitely a showpiece.

  14. Resa says:

    Neat doors. Gates are doors of sorts. That should be an interesting post!

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