Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time), by using the blue link-up button below.
I was also lucky enough to meet up with another Atlanta area blogger, Ludwig Keck from Two Camera – Two Views. Ludwig and his friend David were nice enough to come in to town to join me for a doorscursion around the Midtown area; a part of the city which I had never seen before.
For those who have never been, I’d say that it’s relatively easy to keep your bearings straight in Atlanta…ahem, once you get used to the fact that every other street is called ‘Peachtree’ Road, or Lane, or Boulevard, or something.
Then don’t forget to factor in the added confusion of all the possible cardinal point combinations and permutations i.e. NE, SW… or the classic South Peachtree St. NW!?!? Really Atlanta? FFS!
Okay I may be exaggerating on that last one but no – Atlanta streets are not confusing at all *he said sarcastically* 😉
All the more reason to go exploring in the good company of locals. So the three of us met at my hotel and headed out on foot with cameras in hand.
One of the first places we passed was this little restaurant with an iconic little mascot sitting out front. Anyone care to guess what type of food this place served?
We walked a few blocks east and in no time we were in front of the historic Fox theater. I’ll have another doors post totally on the Fox in a week or two but for now check out the wonderful old sign and marquee.
But since Thursday Doors is about doors, maybe I should just shut up and show you some of the nice ones I found:
Since we were all wearing sagging pants we wouldn’t have felt welcome in this place 😛
These last shots are all from Saint Mark Methodist Church with great hardware and stained glass. I would have loved to see the inside of this place.
Many thanks again to Ludwig and David for an enjoyable afternoon as well as the chance to get out and discover some of the city.

Special Note: Monday Oct 10th is our Thanksgiving holiday here in Canada so as I do each year, on Friday evening I’ll be unplugging completely from all social media to enjoy the long weekend with family and friends. I’ll be back on Tuesday to reply to comments and check out any Doors posts I might have missed.
As always I thank you for looking 🙂
