For The Love Of Doors


I dedicate this post to my delightful UK blogging friend and writer, Valerie at A Mixed Bag, who shares a similar fascination with doors.

X ya, Valerie!

Before posting this, I went online and Googled the symbolism of doors because I have always envisioned my fears as doors and mustering the courage to walk through them. So I was curious to see if doors held some esoteric meaning.

And here is what I found out:

Doors

Hope; opportunity; opening; passage from one state or world to another; entrance to new life; initiation.

It can be an entrance or an exit. A door can represent a new challenge or opportunity. It can represent a closing of the past, or a passage to a new future.

I love doors. I love looking at them, touching them, and am curious to know what's on the other side of them. I also like to notice what type of door handle and locks they have, or if the door has a window or if it’s just one sold piece of wood or metal.

Sometimes I’ll walk around the city and go door looking. And it’s interesting how a door to a home will often give me a sense about the people who live inside, because the front door is the first thing you see when walking into a house. It’s almost like an introduction to its inhabitants.

Some doors seem open and welcoming, while others seem closed off and kind of cold; almost giving you a feeling of DO NOT ENTER.

I am especially attracted to older doors, because they contain the life history of those who walked through them prior.

I know this sounds silly, but to me doors contain a personality.

Here are some photographs I took over the past two months of various doors.

I tried to get a bit of variety, to show you how vastly different they can be.

Please enjoy…

    Ooooh what a surprise! I knew right at the start that I would love this post.

    'I know this sounds silly, but to me doors contain a personality'


    And that's the truth, Ron. I get so disillusioned with the modern trend of double glazing and uPVC windows and doors. They are so UNINTERESTING. And yet my house is part of that trend. They show the world nothing about the occupants, yet those beauties in your photographs reveal everything. I love them.


    The only way I can overcome the boring whiteness of uPVC is to make the porch attractive. The inner door is panelled wood with squared windows in the top half but you have to peer through a uPVC window to see it. Therefore I brighten the porch with colourful flowers and a couple of ornaments on a low table. If that doesn't reveal my character nothing will....hahaha.


    It's a surprising day, I had a mention on another post when I seemingly encouraged someone to resume writing.


    Hope you're geared up for a happy and peaceful weekend.

  2. Love the shots of doors you've shared with us Ron. I found out something interesting about doors recently.

    Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was? Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.
    Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

    It's not ageing, it's the door! That's a relief. ;)

  3. You found some fabulous doors, Ron! This is funny, because I have been wanting to do a post about doors in my neighborhood! There are some great doors.....and there are some really ugly ones! They really give the homes a lot of personality. The way you feel about doors is how I feel about clocks. Clocks fascinate me!

    Guess what I tried for the first time last night??? Apothic red wine! It was FABULOUS......smooth and yummy and no bad tannins! It's on my go to list now, so thanks for the great recommendation! XO

  4. Oh--another love we share. I spent more than one day in England, just walking around and capturing doors and doorways. They have such character. And I had more than one person step out to ask if there was a problem....LOL...and yes, they found me charming and a bit quirky as I shared my photo of their door with them. They were all very kind. I treasure those photos and those adventures, even if he-who-thinks-I'm-nutz...thinks I'm nutz. Yep--darn lucky I didn't just get arrested. LOLOL


    And I love Akelamalu's explanation of that doorway trigger that happens in my brain. I'm going to call them Notre Dame moments now. LOL Bless their hearts for making me years younger with their research! ;-)


    Wonderful photos--WOW is that pink! And how cool is the one with the metal covering it. The second one...has charm up the whazoo!
    Ohhhhh....now I wanna go on a door adventure! ;-)


    You have a grand weekend, sir. I'll be ignoring the swirling white stuff and pretending it's spring. :-/

    Wow, Ron, this post knocked me right off my hinges! The photos are great, I love that Emerson quote, and you make such great observations:

    "I am especially attracted to older doors, because they contain the life history of those who walked through them prior."

    This is so true! Doors are really portals to another time and they all have stories to tell. I met a man from Philadelphia many years ago who told me that homeowners in Philly used to take a lot of pride in their front doors and tried to make them look unique. Has this been your experience?

    This post was a real door-opening experience for me. As one who is often reluctant to change, afraid to walk through a strange door, your post reminds me that there can be a whole new world waiting for us on the other side of those closed doors.

    Have a great weekend, buddy!

  6. Thank you, Ron! I also have a thing for doors, and a similar fascination with gates.
    Love that quote. Emerson was a brilliant man.

  7. Ron, this is such a wonderful post! Very thought provoking and fascinating. Your photos are just beautiful. And each one of them gives a different feel.

    I'm especially drawn to #2 and #4 because I like old doors as well. But I also love the pink door because it looks so very bright and happy.

    Great quote by Elizabeth Tayor!

    Thank you for sharing this today, Ron. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Goooood Morning Valerie!

    SURPRISE!!!!

    I have been wanting to share a post about doors for the past couple of months, since I read on one of your post about your equal fascination with them.

    "They are so UNINTERESTING. And yet my house is part of that trend. They show the world nothing about the occupants, yet those beauties in your photographs reveal everything."

    I know exactly what you mean about those type doors - it's like they're 'generic.' So many of the home developments in Florida (and even part of the east coast) has those type doors - they all look the same. Philly, because it's such an old city, has some of the most fascinating doors and architecture.

    "Therefore I brighten the porch with colourful flowers and a couple of ornaments on a low table. If that doesn't reveal my character nothing will....hahaha."

    You GO, Valerie! And yes, you can always 'individualize' them by added your own special touch ( flowers, door wreaths, etc). I'm sure your door (and surrounding area) exemplifies your unique personality :)

    "It's a surprising day, I had a mention on another post when I seemingly encouraged someone to resume writing."

    Oh, how AWESOME is that! Yup..I just HAD to dedicate this post to YOU!

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, dear lady. Have a lovely weekend!

  9. Hellooooooooo Pearl!

    Thank you :)

    And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your comment about DOORS!!!!!

    " have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale."

    WOW...how utterly fascinating is that!!!

    And yes, I have (many times) walked through a door with a purpose, only to forget what that purpose was.

    "It's not ageing, it's the door! That's a relief. ;)"



    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA! OMG...what a RELIEF!


    Thank you soooooooooo much sharing that information on this post, m'dear! You've added MUCH!

  10. Good morning Bijoux!

    Thank you :)

    " I have been wanting to do a post about doors in my neighborhood! There are some great doors.....and there are some really ugly ones! They really give the homes a lot of personality. The way you feel about doors is how I feel about clocks. Clocks fascinate me!"

    Yes, ain't that the truth about doors? Some are great-looking, while others not-so-much. And it was so interesting to read about your fascination with CLOCKS! And I can SEE that too. Clocks are fascinating as well (especially old ones) because it's like they contain the history of 'time' past. If you ever come to Philly, I will take you to City Hall, where we can take an elevator up to the top, because the elevator ride takes you INSIDE the clock as you go up - where you can view all the inner-workings.

    "Guess what I tried for the first time last night??? Apothic red wine! It was FABULOUS......smooth and yummy and no bad tannins! It's on my go to list now, so thanks for the great recommendation!"



    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I am sooooooo glad to hear you tried Apothic red and found it FABULOUS! Isn't it an awesome wine? SMOOTH.

  11. Hey there Suzi!

    You are so welcome, my friend. I have been wanting to share a post about doors for some time now.

    "and a similar fascination with gates."

    Yes, I remember you mentioning that in one of your posts. Gates are fascinating as well, I agree. They too have a history and feel to them. And I especially like older gates.

    "Love that quote. Emerson was a brilliant man."



    Yes, he was, wasn't he? I found that quote online yesterday.


    Thanks for stopping by, Suzi. Enjoy your weekend!!!

  12. Hola Denise~

    Thanks, girl :)

    It's funny because for as long as I had this attraction for doors, I've never actually research their meaning. So I was utterly fascinated to read all the articles I found online about doors.

    Yes, isn't #2 the coolest? It looks like a door you would see on the house that Dracula lives in - HA! Very Gothic!

    "Great quote by Elizabeth Tayor!"



    I loved Elizabeth Taylor and could SO see her saying that.


    Have a terrific weekend, girl. And thank you for stopping by!

  13. Hey there Rob!

    HA! OMG...I loved the first sentence of your comment. As well as the first sentence of your last paragraph. You are so CLEVER!

    " I met a man from Philadelphia many years ago who told me that homeowners in Philly used to take a lot of pride in their front doors and tried to make them look unique. Has this been your experience?"

    Yes, it has been my experience. Philly takes a GREAT deal of pride in not only their front doors, but all it's magnificent, historical architecture as well. They really work to preserve it's beauty. Most of these photos, I took in the oldest part of Philly, Society Hill. So the doors and architecture are stunning.

    "As one who is often reluctant to change, afraid to walk through a strange door, your post reminds me that there can be a whole new world waiting for us on the other side of those closed doors."



    Yes, you are soooooooo right. And I LOVE how you said that! I too am reluctant and afraid to walk through certain doors. But it's funny because I always realize (AFTER I walk through the door) that my fears always stemmed from the feeling of being afraid, rather then the actual experience on the other side.


    Always fab to see ya, buddy. Thanks for stopping by and have a most excellent weekend!

  14. Hiya Mel!

    "Oh--another love we share."

    I bet the doors in England were faaaaaaaaaabulous! And it's so funny you mentioned their reaction to you taking photos of the doors, because I get the SAME reaction here in Philly. Some people will poke their head of the windows and say, "Can I help you?" And I say, "No, I was just admiring your door." HA!

    "And I love Akelamalu's explanation of that doorway trigger that happens in my brain. I'm going to call them Notre Dame moments now."

    Yes! Wasn't her explanation BRILLIANT??? And now I won't feel so bad every time I walk through a door and forget why I walked through it :)

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos.

    "And how cool is the one with the metal covering it."

    Isn't that one of the most interesting type doors? It was layers of copper and tin. And I agree, that second door is faaaaaabulous! Very Gothic.



    Mucho thanks for stopping by, dear lady. Have a super-duper weekend!

  15. Ron, how you ever think to come up with these topics? I like how you can take something such as doors, and make them sound so interesting and deep. I enjoy how your mind thinks. This was so fascinating to read because you made me more aware of noticing doors.


    Great photographs. I really like 5 and 8. It's interesting to note how 5 doesn't have a door handle, just a lock. I like the art deco architecture around 8, yet the door has a completely different style.

  16. Well, you'll have to count me silly as well! I love vintage (old) doors and hardware. I love, Love, LOVE these door shots! It would be impossible to pick the one I like best. I agree with the esoteric meaning and analogy of doors. Makes one wonder what the door into our own soul looks like. Hope you have a wonderful, door-opening weekend!

    "It's interesting to note how 5 doesn't have a door handle, just a lock."

    Hey, I didn't even notice that!?!?

    Also, I never noticed how there are two different things going on in #8.

  20. What a wonderful trip you've taken us on, Ron! I gravitate to doors that look welcoming (NOT #5!). I've never seen a Pepto Bismol-pink door like your #3 -- nor have I seen a pea-green one like #7 (interesting mail slot, though!). I've heard that painting your door red (like #8) can be good Feng Shui, depending on which direction it faces. My favorite of your selections probably is #6, though for the life of me, I can't figure out how they open that thing! Have a splendid weekend, Ron!

    me too, ron. i like my doors beat up, paint-chipped, rusted and peeling. funny, i wouldn't want it as my personal door though. i can appreciate new door as well and i do notice them, mostly when colored either red or a cherry or brown wood. i always wanted a black and white house with a red door.

  23. Helloooooooooo Debbie!

    Aw, thank you, dearest lady :)

    Aren't doors so interesting?

    "! I gravitate to doors that look welcoming (NOT #5!)."

    HAHAHHAHAHAAHA! I agree, not a welcoming door at all. But I find the tin/copper front kind of an interesting choice.

    "I've heard that painting your door red (like #8) can be good Feng Shui, depending on which direction it faces."

    Thank you for sharing that because I never knew!?!

    " My favorite of your selections probably is #6, though for the life of me, I can't figure out how they open that thing!"



    OMG, I thought THE SAME THING!!! How do they open it, and how to they walk through it because it looks so small? I imaging it's sorta like one of those closest doors that opens like a fan?

    Yup, my sentiments exactly. I wouldn't want it as a door to my home though.

    "i always wanted a black and white house with a red door."

    Yes! Yes! Yes! That sounds so COOL!!!! I love black and white, with just a splash of color.

    "love the green one in your post too."

  25. Ron, I read this post while I was at work today, but wanted to wait until I came home to comment. I love this post because I have the same affinity for doors and have always felt like doors represented something. It was so interesting to read what you discovered when you Googled 'the symbolism of doors.' I can believe it too!


    Really nice selections you shared here. Love #'s 2, 4, and 8. But I have to say that #5, even though I wouldn't want that door on my house, is so very interesting. I like the overhang. Did you notice if it was made of plastic or glass because I can't tell from the photo?


    Great quotes too!

  26. Hey ho Robert!

    You like doors as well? COOL!!!!!

    " It was so interesting to read what you discovered when you Googled 'the symbolism of doors.' I can believe it too!"

    I found that information on several different websites, so I took a few of the most interesting ones I could find. And I think it's very interesting is several of the comments here that there are other people who feel the same way - that doors symbolize things.

    " But I have to say that #5, even though I wouldn't want that door on my house, is so very interesting. I like the overhang. Did you notice if it was made of plastic or glass because I can't tell from the photo?"

    Yes, I kind of feel the same way about that door. I don't think I would choose it as a door for my home, but there is something about it that intrigues me. I think it's the tin/copper overlay.

    And the overhang was made of a frosted GLASS that was suspended with wire. Isn't it cool?

    "Warning, though: painting your sliding glass door will NOT produce the same effect..."



    Bwhahahahhahahahahaha! CRACKED ME UP!!! Which reminds me of when my family moved to Florida in 1973. We had never experienced sliding glass doors before. We finally had to paste on DECALS because everyone in our family kept SLAMMING into them - HA!

  41. That certainly is a nice selection of doors! Something about that last one... yes, I think it's my fav. :)

    I was sad when we had to get a new front door. Our dog, Rev, chewed it beyond repair. It was a wooden door, painted white, with 12 panes of glass in it. French style, I guess. Loved that door!

    While I do like open floor plans in some homes, I'm glad that we have a lot of doors. They do add that extra bit of personality to a home.

    When using Feng Shui principles, a lot of people paint front doors red to bring in Yang energy. Of course, they can be painted any color depending on what you want to attract to your home.

  42. Thank you, Mary :)

    Most of these photographs were taken in Society Hill. I LOVE that area because it still has the homes with all the old doors.

    Yes, it seems that the refurbished ones are more expensive than the newer ones. And it's probably because of the high quality that went into making them.

I think what struck me the most was that you went around taking these... I can picture it (no pun intended!)....

    I took these shots over a period of a few months. I walked around with the intention of finding interesting doors to shoot. But sometimes I'll just see one without even looking for it, and then shoot it. I try to have my camera with me at all times, just in case I see something interesting.

    Yes! Doors are not only the entrances to buildings, but they also tend to lend a hint to the character of the occupant. And lemme tell ya, some doors don't come cheap. Karin and I actually went door shopping about a year ago, and some of those doors (especially the refurbished or rescued ones) can go for a pretty penny!
