Thursday Doors…wooden doors

I’ve been walking along the beach in the mornings on The Strand, officially the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, a paved, 22-mile (35-km) path running from Will Rogers State Beach in the north to Torrance County Beach in the south. There are houses of all sorts, from enormous to small (all some degree of expensive), houses that would look perfect in New England while others wouldn’t be out of place in Europe, modern to houses that might have been in Italy for many years, and of course all these houses have doors. The problem for me is that there are quite a few people out and about in the early morning and it feels a bit awkward to me sometimes to be taking photos of doors when I’m not that far away from the house itself and the homeowners might be looking out as they sip their morning coffee.

Nevertheless, I’ve managed to capture a few doors and today I’ve chosen some wooden ones that look quite substantial. Don’t try to kick these doors down the way they often do on TV! The only thing likely to break would be your leg.

Thursday Doors 9.8.22

  1. Lovely photos of the doors!

  2. peggy says:

    Wow. That first door could belong on a castle. It would be nice to have an entryway like the third photo.

  3. Alison says:

    So exactly where is this?

  4. The wide variety of houses intrigues me. A wonderful collection. Love the way you framed the first one.

    • The first one was me trying to be a bit subtle about taking a photo of the door but it worked well for the framing. You’d be astonished at the variety in size and styles of the homes. But they’re all expensive!!

  5. Oh yes, I love the courtyard in the top image, the garage door in the second, and it does like this last building would fit right in in Italy! Nice finds, Janet.

  6. Dan Antion says:

    These are amazing doors, Janet. I love that garage door, and the way it matches the entry door.

  7. de Wets Wild says:

    Those do look like they belong on medieval castles rather than homes!

  8. I love these wooden doors and the whole vibe of the first photo. 🙂

  9. Marsha says:

    You did a beautiful job capturing these doors, and they are quite close up. I feel that same awkwardness when I shoot pictures of people’s home doors as well and I don’t usually get that close.

    Wow – they do seem like string doors that are not easy to break down!
    And sounds like a nice place to walk –
    Oh and Janet / I know what you mean about taking photos with folks out / even though I do like taking street shots – there are many times I keep the camera out away because it is not socially fitting

    I really like all of these doors, Janet!
