Thursday Doors – July 07, 2016

“Old Side Door” - St. Mary’s Anglican Church, Richmond Hil

“When someone you love says goodbye you can stare long and hard at the door they closed and forget to see all the doors God has open in front of you.”
― Shannon L. Alder

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world

The image above is of yet another fine door at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The door is an oddity, as there is no step down (I was going to title it “Mind Your Step”), and it’s sealed off on the inside. I imagine it must have been a door to the Incumbent’s residence in days gone by. I will need to ask about that.

In any case, it’s a beautiful door and is nicely complimented by a set of wonderful windows and framed below by a lush garden at this historical church in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

  1. Ed, what got my attention was the quote you used. It made me think about closed doors, and did I feel the way the sentiment ther saame way. When a heart is open to love, that love is forever, the human body can walk away, (or die) but the spirit and nature of the love, remains.. it is always with us. someone else could I suppose close a door, and turn their backs, but then, they would no longer be the love that was.. My love would still be with me.. and the door would always be open, for when we love, we love unconditionally.
    Sorry… this blog inspired that thought.

  2. Ed: Thanks for the like on my, “Day Lilies and Frog Rain Gauge.”. Interestingly enough, it’s raining here right now – and we need it. Our Spring was unusually low on rain this year. We generally get plastered in April and May – not this year. Take care, bud.

  3. Ed: I want to thank you for the, like on myYellow Day Lily. The Lilies stopped blooming for a while and are now coming out again.

  5. I like the color of the door. It has character. This part of town, houses, window trims are have contrast colors but not standing out. Culture! Thank you for liking my newest post on my blog.

  6. Ed: Thanks for the like on my, Where’s the Male American Gold Finch. Always appreciate your continued interest in my work.
