Thursday Doors…Ancient to modern

We’d planned to go to Saguaro National Park but circumstances conspired to lead us to choose a closer destination due to a later start. Casa Grande National Monument has been on our list since we saw the sign for it on our initial trip to Tucson the first year we were here. Although an interesting and somewhat mysterious place, it’s quite small and after we’d finished, one of those magazines that points you to local businesses and entertainment led my husband to a listing for Windmill Winery, where we spent an enjoyable afternoon. More about both those places at another time but this truck at the winery looks good for Thursday Door.

This is part of Casa Grande, fashioned from the caliche soil of this area. There’s a doorway here sans an actual door but I don’t even know that there were doors initially.

This door has nothing to do with that trip at all but I thought you’d enjoy it as much as I did. That’s it for this edition of Thursday Doors. Thanks for stopping by. Now click on the link, go to host Dan’s blog and check out some of the other doors featured there.

    Three very different doors, wonderful Janet.

    Truck doors, car doors and doorway doors are all great. I think I like the truck the best.

  9. Emille says:

    You crack me up with the 2 cars, Janet:) The first one has an extremely long bed (for its size). Love the simplicity of your second capture!

  10. Janet, what fun. I love old cars and trucks, and that old flatbed is a real beauty. Fun angles in your doors shots. Hugs on the wing!

    Janet – one word comes to mind for this post – FUN
    the old and new and the contrast in vehicles

  12. JT Twissel says:

    Those look like jail house doors in a ghost town! Love the old truck.

  13. de Wets Wild says:

    Such a contrast between the vehicles in the top and bottom photographs! It’s as if looking through that hole in the wall transformed the one into the other!

  14. Marsha says:

    Is that your new yellow car? I love it! Your truck looks a little worn out. LOL

  15. […] I left Snooze and Blues Bloggers, This, that and the other thing, Wind Kisses, and Journeys by Johnbo., Vince and I saw this unusual building near our condo. I […]

  16. It doesn’t look like the middle one had an actual door, but the building and opening for one is neat. I love the old truck and the yellow sports car!

  17. Resa says:

    The juxtaposition between the truck door and yellow car door is fab.
    The mill winery is piquing!

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