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.

As we wandered in the old part of Philadelphia, we spotted all sorts of doors and buildings worth photographing.  One such duo is the Italian Consulate, housed in a building of old world charm and detail.   Sometimes the effect of a door is more than just the door itself.  The surroundings can make it even more special, as in this instance.

Because some days are just like that.  🙂  Not sure I’d want to come home to this every day, though.  Happy February!

Welcome back to Thursday Doors and happy 2018.  Norm, as always, thanks for hosting this group of door lovers.

This first shot was taken while we were waiting for the train into the city of Brotherly Love. I like the bright, cheerful colors.

Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the U.S., so it has a variety of doors: classical, modern, and funky.  Doors aren’t the only things worth seeing, of course, but they certainly add lots of fun when wandering the streets as our daughter and I did recently.
