If variety is the spice of life, it was a spicy day in Philadelphia, even though I had little time for shooting doors on this trip. Eating spicy food has been linked with living longer. Not sure these doors/gates will help with that, but you may enjoy your time more.

This is one of the most unusual gates I’ve seen.

Notice the two dogs at the bottom on either side?

Gates are good and doors are good, but the combination is even better.  These are from Baja California.

Boundaries are good, but without a gate, all that you have are fences.

If you’d like to see more doors,  grab your passport and pop up to Montreal where Norm is our host.  Feel free to join us if you’d like.  We’d a-door having you stop by.  🙂

 

 

Door:  a. A movable structure used to close off an entrance, typically consisting of a panel that swings on hinges or that slides or rotates.

Gate: 1. A structure that can be swung, drawn, or lowered to block an entrance or a passageway.

Hmmm, these two definitions sound rather similar to me so with the authority of dictionaries behind me, I offer you these three gate-doors from Plombières les Bains.  Just think of a gate as an outside door with open windows.   These are not door-ky, but rather they a-door-n their space.  I heartily en-doors them.  🙂  Happy Thursday!
