Thursday Doors – November 14, 2019

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 your link in the comments below, anytime between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). 

Door Soup

Door soup is what you get when you have no official theme or subject the week and toss a whole bunch of unrelated doors into the same pot.

This batch includes a bunch of previously unused door pics that I found interesting enough to capture but still haven’t been able to find a home for in any of my usual posts.

Plus there’s 6″ of snow on the ground that I’m not ready to deal with. I mean it’s barely mid-November for crying out loud (!), so I’m scouring the archives because a new doorscursion just ain’t gonna happen this week.

Subway doors in the Montréal Métro

A set of pretty carriage house doors from the estate of former Prime Minister Mackenzie King, in Gatineau Québec.

A non-exit to a shop at Upper Canada Village.

A few more from Kingston, Ontario.

Inside the Hochelaga Inn

Kingston City Hall

“Authorized personnel only” – Université de Montréal Science Centre.

Trendy health-food/organic grocery store in north end Ahuntsic neighbourhood, Montréal

A mix of battered, weathered, and worn beauties from various parts of the city.

That first step though…

And let’s finish off with one that has two of my favourite door categories covered: a corner door that’s also a ghost door.

I hope it’s warmer with less snow wherever you happen to be right now.

Don’t forget to add your links in the comments section below to share your own doors post this week.

As always thanks for looking 🙂

  1. Hi, I’ve just found your challenge, via Cee’s blog. What a beautiful selection of doors. Here is my entry for the challenge.


  2. nice doors. We don’t have snow, but it’s been cold here.

  3. My favourite is the second subway photo, with the grand transit station in the background! I did get excited for you in the last two, because I know you like the corner doors. I also like the spiral staircases right next to them.

    I made it just under the wire!

    Some great doors there. Sometimes it is good to do a sweep up if random doors.

  10. You make a great door soup, Norm. It’s colourful and well-balanced.

    In my post I round up one summer day from Slovenian coast, which got flooded pretty badly a few nights ago along with Venice. Right now we’re having a terrible storm. Don’t know who is more afraid, bestia or I.

  17. Howdy Norm. The leaves in our yard still crunch from our icy rain; good day for soup! Liked the metro shots with all the curved glasswork. Also enjoyed the Kingston views; on our Canada travels, we stopped in Kingston because it had a Yellow Deli. Loved the historic buildings of that town.

      Thanks. Even though Kingston is only a 4 hour drive from us, this summer was the first time we actually stopped there and spent a few days exploring. Had I known how pretty some of the older parts of town were, I would have visited much sooner.

    Door soup is always fun! You never know what you’ll get! 🙂 We had some flurries here on Tuesday, but no snow sticking yet. And I’d like to keep it that way for a bit. 😉 Stay warm!

    Many ingredients in your soup – I don’t know if I can replicate your recipe!:) I recognize the frantic mode, when my challenge All Seasons is due and something totally unexpected is hurled my way, preferrably just the day before publishing the post!
    Feel for you, it seems in more of the snow areas, winter and snow decided to come early! Hope that it does not mean we have a longer winter:(

    That’s a very tasty door soup. I like the Not an Exit door. Out here in California – no snow but lots of gray and chilly.

    Hey Norm, Happy Snow Day to you! Sorry, I know you’re not happy about this white stuff just yet. I love the thin, metal door with the twisty, circular metal stairs to the side. So much going on in that pic!

    I wondered about the “Not An Exit” sign on the street side of a door – but then I realized why it was on that side, so passers-by could scold anyone coming out that way.

    My favorite is the skinny corner door with the winding staircase next to it – now unused, I hope!!

    Door soup! Great idea! And I sympathize about the snow – we also got several inches and have been in a deep freeze since then, when it’s supposed to be 50 degrees F!! It MIGHT start melting tomorrow if the temperature reaches the predicted 40 degrees! So my doors post this week remembers a hot day in July on our European river cruise…

    I liked this collection, theme or no theme! I like that the Hochelaga Inn photo is taken from the inside toward the outdoors. So often, or for pictures are from the opposite angle.

      Thanks Corina. I do try to remember to capture indoor door shots too but you’re right, the outdoor ones seems to come to mind more naturally. Good to see you 🙂


  28. I’m catching up with last weeks doors, and managed to squeeze a post in for today: It comes with a short poem and a long explanation of what the week in Spain that provided the doors has brought me.

  29. Hurrah for archives, Norm. 🙂 I like the carriage house doors and the doors with the etched glass, but you always have to love a red phone booth. We have a bit of snow here, but the cold the last few days has been worse. Maybe that’s what caused me to accidentally post Friday’s post today as well as my Thursday Doors post. That story will do until I come up with a better one. Happy Thursday and thanks for being a great host.

  30. “Door soup”; I’ll have to remember that. My contribution for this week is themed on two levels, however.

    Great soup, Norm! I love the older doors and the ghost door. I also like the “selfie in the phone booth” even if that’s a little incongruous. The carriage house doors and the interior shot looking out through the double entrance doors are my favorites.

    My doors are over here –

    I do like a good helping of door soup. One never knows what to expect.

    I like the randomness of this week’s selection – from the elegant Hochelaga Inn doors with the etched glass, to the ghost door. My favourite is the second last one – the old door beside that tiny iron staircase. There’s that exceptionally high step to the door and when I see a staircase like that, my impulse is to want to climb it!

    Stay warm, Norm.

  41. 12°F here but right no snow. 🙂 This is a great array of doors. My favorites are the white double doors in the yellow building, the etched glass, and, of course, the red telephone booth. Happy Thursday, Norm. If only that snow would melt and not have to be moved, but with these temps I’m thinking ‘not’. 🙂
