I had to add a bit of light to this photo of a French door because the position and intensity of the sun made it difficult to see the wonderful details. Then I needed to get closer so you could really appreciate them. Have to admit that I’m sorry I missed my yearly trip to France last year. Maybe this year. I’d love to get some more doors to share. In the meanwhile, enjoy this one. And don’t forget to have a bit of fun with today’s date, 1.21.21, which is a palindrome, meaning it reads the same forwards and backwards. Just thought you’d like to know. Getting my math geek on for you, Dan.

for Thursday Doors 1.21.21

  1. Sheree says:

    In Europe it’s 21/01/21! Fabulous doors and I hope you manage to add to your stock later in the year.

  2. restlessjo says:

    Yes, I think you Americans have a funny way of writing the date too, but I shall refrain from saying so πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ A nice bit of cavorting going on on those doors, Janet!

  3. Dan Antion says:

    That’s a wonderful door, Janet and I love palindromes πŸ™‚.

    I hope you get back to France for doors and pastries and wine and…all the normal experiences of travel.

    Take care and stay safe.

    • Thanks, Dan. I’m excited today because we got rain last night, the second night in the last week and there’s more rain in the forecast, or at least the possibility of it, over the next four or five days!!

      Yes,I’m looking forward to traveling again, even “just” in the US. But I always enjoy my time in France and with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law.

    Interesting about the date. 1.21.21
    Never to be experienced again.

    2.22.22 I guess this is possible. Too lazy to figure if.
    3.33.33 I think not.

  5. I just love old doors – and given the difficulty the sun gave you on this day, I like this one too. Thanks.

    • There are lots and lots of great old doors in France and I’ve featured a lot of them in past posts. They loo perfect on their buildings but would look bizarre on ours. πŸ™‚

  6. Just imagine the amount of work that went into designing and making that door – all the wood carving and ironwork!

  7. Su Leslie says:

    Beautiful door Janet. I hope we’ll all be able to travel before too long.

  8. Amy says:

    Such a special door. Beautifully captured, Janet.

    • There are so many photo-worthy doors there that it’s sometimes difficult to get where we’re trying to go, as I keep stopping to take photos. And then there are the ones I see while we’re driving by and can’t stop to get. 😦

  9. Jet Eliot says:

    Beautiful doors you present today, Janet, and I am so grateful for the reminder about the date numbers. I’m usually very aware of this, but missed this one today. And the palindrome is espec. terrific.

  10. Junie-Jesh says:

    Of course I first looked at your images, and thought – is that the same door? But then I read your text, lol. Didn’t know you were a Francophile (my made up word) – where do you mostly go, or is it all over? The name of my mother will tell you why I’m interested in France – her last name was: de Caron de Saint Germain.

    • When my sister-in-law and brother-in-law lived in Provence, I went there. Now they live closer to German and Switzerland in the Franche-ComtΓ©, so that’s where I go. I’ve also been to Normandy to see the WWII beaches, especially Omaha Beach where my father-in-law landed on D-Day. Years ago in the mid-seventies when I visited Europe for almost a year, I was in other parts of France as well, including some time in Paris.

    Love the filigree work in the window glass. I’m sure some quilter somewhere has been inspired by these details πŸ™‚

  12. Natalie says:

    Janet, Very nice door with the details. I enjoy your math geekiness πŸ™‚ #ThursdayDoors

    • πŸ™‚ Thanks, Natalie. It was a very attractive door, that’s for sure. I was a bit of a math geek for a time but when I got to trig, I decided unless I was going into a field that needed a lot of math, that was probably the end of it for me. So far I haven’t needed to figure out the width of a river from the shadow of a tree, so I guess that was true. πŸ™‚

  13. Fabulous doors, I hope you get back to France this year for more. At nine pm on the 21st it was the 21st hour of the 21st day of 21st year of the 21st century. Does that make sense?

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