Oh, Sylvia, this is a very, very difficult challenge for me, not because I don’t have any door photos, but because I have hundreds, having participated in Norm’s, now Dan’s, Thursday Doors challenge for years. I guess trying to choose is partly why it’s called a challenge. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going with an eclectic gallery, starting with a church door from Philadelphia, a city full of interesting doors.

Then there are ancient doors that are difficult to reach on purpose! This is Montezuma Castle in Arizona. Coming home late? Be sure someone leaves the ladder out for you!

This French crypt has a rather wonderful door but as it’s ajar, I hope no one’s gotten out. Reminds me of the old joke of “When isn’t a door a door?” “When it’s ajar.” ๐Ÿ™‚

Then there are moving pizza doors,

unique Colmar doors,

fancy furniture doors,

doors that might be a bit difficult to access,

doors that don’t even get noticed, and

details that make the door.

If you really enjoy doors, you should join Dan’s Thursday Doors, started and formerly hosted by Norm up in Canada, eh? Click on the highlighted link to find the entries for this last week and check in with Dan on Thursday at midnight EST or later to see his doors and link your entry. It’s lots of fun but very addictive!!

  1. I hope the door in front of the jaguar is strong enough ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Alison says:

    Love that door in the rocks

  3. Dan Antion says:

    Great choices, Janet.

  4. JohnRH says:

    Ha. Great selections! Love the leopard, and the hobbit door!

  5. There are some really cool and interesting doors in this set, Janet. I loved the old rusty gate, the church doors …wow that hardware was something! The Jaguar or is it Leopard trying to get in the door was really cool and out there!

    • Thanks, Deborah. It was hard to decide what to include and I used way more than usual. I just had to stop going through photos because as you know, I have hundreds of choices. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you enjoyed these. The jaguar/leopard is quite something. Just guessing they don’t actually use that door but who knows? Maybe it moves! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Sylvia Bacon says:

    Oh no, Janet, I certainly understand how challenging this must have been. You have some unique doors with lots of personality! I like them all, especially the one with the cat! I really appreciate your effort this week, your pictures are great and several made me laugh!

  7. restlessjo says:

    That’s just the accessory I need for our front door. It’s white too, but no black spots. Hopefully!

  8. Hammad Rais says:

    No way I’m opening my door for that snow leopard ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Leya says:

    Absolutely fantastic doors, Janet! Wow…your selection must be the most impressive one!

  10. marianallen says:

    A magnificent collection! You should do a coffee-table book of your best doors.

  11. Amy says:

    Excellent choices, Janet! Each is unique and beautiful. That leopard is quite unsual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Teresa says:

    Your doors are amazing. And I can see the similarity on our features doors! ๐Ÿ‘

    Love the door with the jaguar as well!

  13. Jane Lurie says:

    Terrific collection of doors, Janet. The ironwork and woodcarving seems like a lost art. And that cheetah!๐Ÿ†

    • I don’t know what was going on with the cheetah but it’s quite a statement. Glad you enjoyed the doors, Jane. I have hundreds and hundreds of choices so I just stopped after these. ๐Ÿ™‚
