Bonne Bay Doors – Norris Point, Newfoundland 

Only a few doors this week but they are all doors of character.

Across the Bonne Bay harbour from Woody Point is the lovely little village of Norris Point.

As we waited for our harbour boat tour to depart we took some time to explore this quiet fishing village enjoying the scenery and looking for doors 😉

It was one of those typical coastal days where the sun and the clouds couldn’t make up their minds about who would be in charge.

Sunny one minute. Cloudy or foggy the next.

We strolled along the waterfront and as expected in places that are so exposed to the elements, there were some weathered old buildings,

and lots of texture for my camera to capture everywhere I turned.

In other words: it was a good day 🙂

As always, thanks so much for visiting 🙂

  1. Great doors, Norm. And the more weathered, the better.

    Your final green, distressed door with no steps is a wonderful find. I could look at this for hours. There is an ‘unbalanced balance’ about it that draws me in…cannot explain the intrigue.

  4. So on my list of places to visit. Every picture a winner and that last one is a work of art. I love how you framed it

  5. You are so right… so much texture! I know that we are supposed to love blue skies, but some days those gray days make for the most dramatic photos. I love the green accents…and those mountain views….oh my!! Great shots Norm!

    I love the weathered effect on each door- and such a peaceful post – with subtle reminders about the weathering from coastal exposure. Also, your words were perfect – like “where the sun and the clouds couldn’t make up their minds…” hm

    Doors are the best. I can never resist taking a photo of ones that catch my eye and have hundreds.

    Lovely, Norm. The feel of adventure and solitude comes through. Green must be a popular color. It suits the doors well. Thank you for another great doors post.

  10. It was a very good day to be there with a camera! I like the weathered row boat, and the kayaker in teh water. WOW, both outstanding compositions!

    I liked your humor, Norm in this post. I liked the textures you included, rough wood, soft clouds, and paint chipped boat. The doors are so weathered and worn, they feel like an old memory, beloved for their “being there” for as long as they have been.
    On another note, I wondered why the doors don’t have a ledge under them or a finishing wood strip? This is probably a silly question. . .
    Newfoundland looks so beautiful. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  12. There’s nothing better than weathered wooden surfaces. The doors are great as is the boat. I wonder how anyone enters that green door that doesn’t have a handle or other hardware?

  13. What a lovely feature to wander through on your blog, I found you through “Bedlam & Daisies” after falling in love with her Paris doors…those weathered doors have many stories to tell and I enjoyed your capture of their various textures (just one part of their tales!)!

    Even though one can see the harshness of the elements, there is a beauty about it. And like you say, its a textural bliss:) Saw Ian Cross’s comment to you – he doesn’t seem to have his comments on, probably intended, but thank him for letting us know about his whereabouts and what he is doing! If I find an email later one, I of course will send him a hello.

    I love the weatherbeaten woodwork. Plastic sheeting and bamboo just don’t have the staying power.

    Norm, Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders has insisted on vetting my blogs from Bangladesh. I don’t mind but this means I miss the opportunity to publicise our work among regular contributors to Thursday Doors. BBC News is broadcasting a piece on our clinic featuring an interview with me at 10pm GMT on Thursday. Of course you could catch it online. Is there any way you could let folks know about this?

    Sometimes, the simplest doors are the nicest. Wonderful, restful yet dramatic photos. You, sir, are brilliant.

    Love the weathered wood doors. Well, all the weathered wood. *tries to breathe the fresh air*
    Your capture of the undecided sky is perfection — What a shade of blue! And all that depth and mood! Marvelous stuff.

  21. I agree: wonderful textures and doors, although I do wonder about the lack of steps. As beautiful as the place is, I can see that living there could be very difficult and take a special sort of person to not just live there but thrive and enjoy the life.

    These are wonderful doors, Norm. The authentic weathered wood makes your mind drift to all the storms and conditions these guys have stood up to over time. I’m with Judy, I’m glad you were early and had done time to look around.

    It’s funny how “early” now means “time to find doors”

    Green doors and trim seem to be the colour of choice. These old wooden doors must take a beating from the weather in this area. In spite of how rugged they look, they must get occasional TLC to still be standing and looking as good as they do. That poor boat on the other hand has seen better days.
