Castleberry Hill – Atlanta Doorscursion – Part 1
Note: This week’s Thursday Doors post is written in two parts, showing you two different photographers’ impressions of the same doorscursion. The second part can be found over at Michelle Lunato’s Photography blog.
A few week back while in Atlanta on business I had the good fortune to meet up with fellow blogger and photographer Michelle Lunato.
Since she knows the area much better, she had suggested Castleberry Hill as a nearby neighborhood with good doorscursion potential. Well, Michelle turned out to be spot on.
Just southwest of the downtown core this federally recognized historic neighborhood contains an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops, with lots of old industrial spaces converted into trendy lofts and condos. We also saw some pretty cool street-art which I’ve saved for some future posts.
Here are some of my favorite (mostly door) discoveries:
We saw plenty of red brick and lots of lovely wrought-iron throughout the area.
With a name like ‘Match’ at first we thought this was a cigar lounge, but it turned out to be a Polynesian themed bar with an open-air rooftop lounge.
Don’t you just hate when someone plants a tree right in the middle of your shot?
On the lower left there was an old car mirror attached to the wall outside of this garage door, no doubt to offer a view of oncoming traffic before venturing out of this blind exit.
With the graffiti on the door it made for a great semi-selfie.
Across the street I found some “ghost doors’ in this old industrial building.
I fell in love with this old decorative mail box door.
And this long abandoned phone junction box too.
Of course I had to sneak in at least one shot of my hostess in action.
We stopped for lunch at a place called the No Mas Cantina which was an interesting mix of restaurant and artistic housewares/decorations shop. There was a wonderful interior door that my eye was drawn to the minute we walked in. Unfortunately there were some diners sitting at a table right in front of the door, blocking the view.
Michelle must have thought I was odd, the way I kept looking back every few minutes to see if they had left yet.
Finally the payoff – my favorite door of the day!
Please head on over to Michelle’s post to see her pics from the same walk.
