Thursday Doors – August 24, 2017

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. 

Note: I will be on a hiatus from blogging and unable to run Thursday Doors the weeks of Aug 31, Sept 7 and 14th. While I’m away Thursday Doors will continue thanks to an awesome line-up of guest hosts. During that time please check this space for a link to that week’s host.

Tired and In Need of a Break

I have done a Thursday Doors post every single week without fail since September 4th, 2014.

Folks, that’s over 150 weeks. Perhaps I could be in line for some sort of Iron Man award? Just call me the Cal Ripken Jr. of doors 😉

No really, when was the last time you saw a door marked “Puppeteers Entrance”?

I love it, but I’m pooped and I need an extended rest.

Down but not quite out.

For this week’s post I thought I’d put up a few that kinda reflect my mood at the moment, so here’s an assortment of doors that are tired and just like me, could use a break 😀


I’ll be around through the weekend to check out everyone’s #ThursdayDoors posts for this week, but then I am unplugging for a while.

I expect to be back refreshed and recharged with a new Thursday Doors post on September 21st.

Purple is always nice – right?

In the meantime please keep having fun with your own doors posts each week and do play nice with our weekly guest hosts who will do their very best to keep you in wonderful doors while I’m away.

This one is just sad

But then a few steps back and it only gets sadder…

Across the street the morning light is breaking through

And then even beat-up old doors can be beautiful 🙂

As always: thanks for visiting. See you all in a few weeks 😀

  4. Yeah, some TLC for Norm coming up! Have a most excellent break and do not worry about a thing. And – they are indeed beautiful too.

    I sometimes wonder how I make I through the summers, but I guess I would be sad ithout my friends I have met. It would be different if I shared.a household and would blog only once or twice a week.
    The colorful, worn doors made me think of how a garden with weeds is still pretty!
    Hope you have a lovely and exciting vacation, Norm and your “honey.”

  9. I’m going to miss you while you are gone. But you do need a break. I’m looking forward to the guest posts. Like the puppet door.

  12. I haven’t posted for TD in a while myself and on a blogging break except for the weekly photo challenge. Enjoy your break, Norm, and we will both be back with some doors to share! I collected a few in Lake Tahoe 🙂

    That last one with its caption really made me smile.
    Feels like it’s been a long time since my last TD post (I also sympathise with the tired state of your doors this week) but I’m hoping to find time to put one together in the next few weeks – maybe to support the guest hosts!
    Looking forward to your return 🙂 Hope you have a good break

    Enjoy your break, Norm! I understand the need – I’ve been doing SoCS since March 2014, though I’ve had a few breaks of my own since then.
    Love the doors! There’s something about old, run-down doors that’s just … je ne sais quoi.

      Thanks Deborah. I’ve taken vacations and get-aways fairly regularly, but I would always blog from the road. This is the first time I’m taking a full-stock blogging break though. It ill be interesting to see how much I miss it while I’m away 🙂

    We all need a rest from time to time. When I was a teen one summer I worked with a group of marionettes – such fun. The door brings back those memories. Thanks!

  22. That’s an unexpected collection of doors, Norm. But that made it fun. I got a kick out of the puppeteers entrance. Have a thriving Thursday!

      Thanks Marian. You kids usually behave well whenever I’m gone so I’m not worried about that, but this is the first time I take a full-stop break from Thursday Doors and from blogging. I suspect it will feel a bit weird.

      Thanks Joey. Those red ones are not far from my wife’s office so I’ve been meaning to capture them for a while. They always leave me feeling a little sad for them, but they also have so much character 🙂

    3 years is a long time without a break. Rest up, my friend! … but do come back. So many bloggers have taken a break and then never came back. I hope that doesn’t happen!

    btw – LOVE the puppet door 🙂

  35. Thanks for your leadership and enjoy your R&R – you earned it. 🙂 I can relate to these doors some days. Keep your camera or phone close by because I’m guessing you’ll still see a door worth capturing while you are off. 🙂

    These are some tired looking doors but, like you, they all appear to have worked hard and served well. I love the “old red line” group. Enjoy your R&R, Norm. We’llplay nice with the guest hosts and we’ll make you proud with our doors.

    Enjoy, and thank you for all the work you’ve done to let us share in the fun that is Thursday Doors.
