Thursday Doors: (Parenthetical)

There are a million scenes like this in southeastern Pennsylvania. I’ve driven past this one a million times and, every time, I’d say, “I need to stop and take some pictures for Thursday Doors.” And I did (finally).

ThursdayDoors DSF‘Twas a gloomy day about a month ago. A MONTH AGO. I had every intention of publishing them three weeks ago, but… I won’t lament how time flies (again… methinks I say that a lot… BECAUSE IT’S TRUE! — someone is obvs messing with the space-time continuum. Nor will I reiterate the suckitude and struggles that, even though they were difficult, didn’t seem to slow time any. (Hmmm…. interesting…)

As I was saying, ’twas gloomy, but I was gleeful (happy to finally be getting up close to these doors).

Appears to be part of a former farm (a million of them around here). Now, it’s some township’s park/maintenance yard. The green doors remind me of (once were?) stable doors. I love the color green that they are (hunter?), and how weathered. I can’t help but wonder who walked here, what their stories are… (if only these walls, and doors, could talk…)

 

(Note: I tried out the photo layout thingy… to see the photos larger, click on each!)


This post is one of many through Thursday Doors by Norm Frampton. See other doors — from around the world — on his weekly linkup and/or on the Twitter at #ThursdayDoors. This week’s link is hereSee more of my doors here.

    1. Hi, Laurie. Welcome. Well, southeastern PA is large. These aren’t particularly famous doors either. Just down a country road (in a suburb) ones. 🙂

      Thanks so much for the nice comments and for stopping by! I’ll be visiting you soon online!

  1. I like the photo layout because it is noice to see them as collage (with option to make them big)
    and how cool to have so many former farms. We have “some” in our area and I also wish some of them could talk.

    1. It’s cool to have the former farms with some farm buildings. The only downside of the “former farms” part – most of these farmers sold their land for housing developments. There are more farms still intact in central PA, but that’s changing a bit, too. *sigh*

      Yes, talking buildings. That would be so cool.

    1. Happy to be here. FINALLY. Thanks so much, Norm! They are lovely in all their weatheredness. And thanks for the comment about the last show following the line of the wall. (Said like Spock) – I am attempting to improve my composition especially when using the tiny camera in this portable communication device.

  2. Glad you finally made it and with such a great find. I love the door colors and the stone (have to get it out of the fields and use it for something, right?). There are so many beautiful farms in Pennsylvania, but seeing abandoned farms makes me so sad for a variety of reasons. Thanks for salvaging this one, at least for Thursday Doors.

    1. Oh, but Mr. Monet (and his haystacks paintings) would say they do change! They’re never the same doors twice — light, shadow, time of day, season, you know. 🙂
