Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.
“SV Blackjack” – Cabin Door
This image is quite a departure from my regular ‘doors’ images. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to see a Tall Ship Regatta stop in the small port town of Bath, Ontario. Bath, is a small village on the south shores of Lake Ontario and made an ideal spot for these magnificent vessels to harbour for the night.
I have a very real love for sailing ships. I love the sound of rigging creaking, the snap of the sails as they fill with wind, and water sloshing against the hull. I’m a bit of romantic, picturing these ships plying the lakes and seas in bygone days. Most of the older vessels still have a lot of brass and wood on their trim and fittings, including this cabin door, though not ideally lit, it was an opportunity for me to add another door to my collection.
Though I posted images of other ships earlier this month, I’m including an image of this particular ship for your enjoyment.
