The venue for our daughter’s wedding is Las Gaviotas in Baja California, Mexico. It’s a beautiful community built up the lower side of a hill. The houses are close, but every house has a view of the ocean and many of them have wonderful doors. Here are just a few from one of my morning walks.

I recently spent a long Memorial Day weekend in southern California (as well as Baja California), starting in Pasadena with our two daughters.  I love what this parking garage owner has done with the doors to the elevators!

First Baptist Church in Pasadena, California has been around sine 1903.  Its beauty drew me in, but the doors to the church were locked.  After ringing the bell and explaining to the secretary my desire to see the inside, she not only let me in, but told me all about the church.  There were a few lovely doors to be seen as well, although the bright California sun sometimes made it difficult to get a good shot.

Bon jour!  Today it’s time for a quick trip to that most lovely of towns, Plombières-les-Bains.  We don’t have time for a trip to the baths, but since this is Thursday Doors, it doesn’t matter.  We’re in search of some grate doors and have found three.  Of course there are many more, but let’s not be greedy.  Afterwards, we can stop for a coffee and use the toilet before heading home.  Oui, oui!

Not all doors are easy to photograph.  Some hide behind trees or cars or people or in other ways.  We must honor their reticence, yet share their beauty with other door lovers.  These were hiding in Philadelphia.  But there’s no hiding the eclectic collection of doors you’ll find by joining the Thursday Doors a-door-able group of photographers.  Just head over to our head doorman and after admiring his post, click on the link frog to open many doors.

Although Philadelphia was founded long before cars were around and it’s much easier in many ways to do without one if you live in the city environs, there are now plenty of cars and where there are cars, there are sometimes garages.  I, for one, can appreciate the Philadelphia garage, having had to hope for a parking spot too many times over the years of visits.  These garage doors aren’t your usual doors, though.  See if you can spot some of what makes them interesting and maybe a bit a-door-able.

If you can drive in the snow, head up to Montreal, park at Norm’s garage, then walk through doors all over the world.  Take your time.  There are no parking tickets.

I suppose these could be called “double doors”, but I like “twos.”  It’s one of those word that when I look at it for a time, looks weird.  I found these two twos in Philadelphia, but in addition to the two sets of Tudors two doors, there are lots of twos in the photos, three photos but only of two sets of doors.  There are even twos in the addresses.   Too many twos to count?

The doorkeeper for all of us is Norm, possibly still digging himself out of winter in Montreal.  But the doors, whatever the number, are always open, so come on in.
