Thursday Doors – October 13, 2016
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.
Back to the University of Toronto and the wide assortment of doors and interesting architectural styles.
An observation, as I considered this image: it is incredible, the details, some quite obvious, that we miss. For example, this door has two very distinct and different columns, each with a unique capital (that is the top part of the column). Something I had not noticed when I first saw the door and framed the shot. It now has me curious what the symbolism of the two styles is.
A rather sad element of this image is that it shows the significant damage done to the marble columns by salt and age. However, the door itself is quite marvelous with its expressive ironwork. I hope you enjoy this week’s Thursday Door.

I love the cascading effect of the multiple the layers in the doorframe.
All the doors there are so interesting. Thanks.
How big is this door? It looks like the handle is quite low.
I gotta admit – the asymmetry in the columns bothers me a little bit. If you find out why they’re like that, please let us know!
No, this is a standard size door. I had not noticed the low handle.
To be honest, I was looking at the photo for a long time before I noticed it. There’s a lot of detail in this door!
Actually, when I looked at the photo again, the door is about ten feet tall. So the handle is at the right height. There is a lot going on in this image.
That is one very ornate door! 🙂
Simply beautiful door with unique features. Smiles Robin
Gorgeous door! Great find 🙂
