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.

I’ve run out of relatively current doors so I’m going dumpster archive diving to Philadelphia, a city that always provides interesting doors. I’ve got a little of everything so everyone can hopefully find something s/he likes: wooden doors, metalwork, a side door, stonework, interesting windows, and more. What’s more eclectic than that? 🙂 Alas, I have no history for any of these doors but feel free to make up your own. Philly’s been around for many years, so you have a lot of choices.

The door and windows all present attractive glass and a bay window look always appeals to me.

Oh that all security would be this beautiful!

Flowers and vegetation make for a friendly look and take away the feel of being in a big city at least a little bit.

Sometimes you don’t need a special color to make a door attractive. “Plain” wood can be as beautiful as anything as these Philadelphia doors aptly demonstrate. Of course, details matter, both on and around the doors, but these have that covered as well.
