Thursday Doors – Sept 22, 2016

“St. Patrick’s Parish” - Toronto

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 favourite door photos from around the world.


Today, a break from my University of Toronto doors, though the photo was part of that same day’s photo shoot. After leaving the University grounds and on my way to the Art Gallery of Ontario, my wife and I stopped by a nearby pub for a bite to eat. The image above is the view we had from our seats as we ate. I could not resist these wonderful doors of St. Patrick’s Parish in downtown Toronto. Moments after I made this image, the service let out and the steps were filled with people.

Once more, the light this day was beautiful and nicely reflected from the concrete to fill all the shadows and highlight the rich colour of the doors and surrounding stonework.

  1. Thought it had to be somewhere in North America . . . fabulous photograph, such superb use of the light and perfect timing by the sounds of it!

  2. I really like the look of this church front with all its rounded elements … and most unusual is the greenery flanking the doors. I don’t see that kind of detail on church steps very often. The splash of red really enhances the look.

    Great photo, Ed. I like the texture of the stone in the light on the left.
