Thursday Doors – August 18, 2016
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.
Another of many images made during my tour of the University of Toronto campus.
The door above belongs to the University of Toronto Art Museum. I did not know that the U of T had an art museum. Shortly after making this image, I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario for an exhibit of paintings by Lawren Harris and, sure enough, one of the paintings in the exhibit was on loan for the U of T Art Museum. Isn’t it strange how, shortly after discovering something new, you come across it in your life?
This door attracted my attention primarily because if the detailed carving above it, and it’s a wonderful dark oak door with lots of interest in the glass panels. The doors stops seem to have had better days and have not been gently used.
