Thursday Doors: Heavy Metal?

Still posting door images from Morocco, Fez to be more precise.

I found this door in the Medina and it sure looks well secured. With the metal studs it looks like a heavy metal door.

However, upon closer inspection it’s an all wooden door (closeup cross section).

Thanks for visiting; be sure to look for Thursday Doors hosted by Dan Antion to see his amazing images and stories and other door contributors.

Getting Back to Doors

This is a very short post as time is running out and I wanted to get the Thursday Door repetitive posting muscles back in action. The way I see it, if you start posting doors again it might get easier to continue doing so.

I checked my photo archives that I am still post processing from a trip to Morocco in February and March 2020, wow it seems like it was so long ago! Life in pandemic does funny things to your concept of time.

Here’s an ordinary door that I walked past in the Fez medina.


That’s it for this week; door posting muscles feeling stronger already ;-D Also, be sure to check Dan Antion’s No Facilities Thursday Doors posts for other door bloggers’ posts at https://nofacilities.com/category/thursday-doors/

A New Beginning

Thursday Doors is under new management by one of the original participant bloggers when it debuted under the founder, Norm Frampton, our Canadian friend. Dan Antion, Norm’s made in America counterpart, will continue the legacy of Thursday Doors but don’t be surprised if you see some train related doors once in awhile. I swear, Dan is like a walking encyclopedia telling us about interesting historical facts that gives his door photos life and don’t blink because he throws some real funny stuff into his blogs.

So this is my Thursday Doors photo for Dan Antion’s inaugural Thursday Doors in his No Facilities website. Be sure to check out posts by other door aficionados at: https://nofacilities.com/2020/12/03/welcome-to-thursday-doorsas-always/

This was taken from Freak Alley in Boise, Idaho. The one door that I found is in the yellow painted image of some kind of animal with sloth-like claws in a cage.

Bon Voyage, Norm

It has been a long while that I have posted a Thursday Doors blog and my lame excuse was that I took a photo trip for a month in September and October, 2020.  We traveled to Idaho, Montana, Colorado and Nevada while passing through Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Moab in Utah and other small towns in between our major itinerary.  We tried to take a break from the pandemic thinking those states north and east of us were safer but when we returned home we discovered the COVID-19 infection rates spiked in those states; we made it back safely utilizing masks and social distancing practices everywhere we visited!  The break in posting can, and does contribute to laziness and lack of motivation to continue posting so I’ll have to get motivated again to start posting doors.

Last week, I learned that Norm Frampton, the discoverer, originator and creator of Thursday Doors is stepping away from running and maintaining this world-wide blog.  It sent shock ways through my brain and made me realize that I couldn’t let this last post for Norm slip away.  So I’m posting a couple of door photos that I took on this last trip for our Thursday Doors mentor, Norm Frampton, Door Master Emeritus.

As Norm mentioned, he is not disappearing but taking a break from running the Thursday Doors blog and Dan Antion has taken on that responsibility.  Dan is one the creative and funny door bloggers as well as posting other blogs so I’m looking forward to joining his new Door Blogs.

I found this appropriate door photo in Freak Alley in Boise, Idaho that encapsulates what Norm is doing.

The next photo is to remind Norm that if he doesn’t return to post a door blog in the future we’ll send out the wolves to find him. It was also taken in Freak Alley.

So Norm, this is bon voyage, not good bye! Good luck on your break and I hope to see your door posts on Dan’s TD site in the future. It was truly nice to know you even if it was a virtual relationship and maybe some day I’ll run into you in person. Take care and stay safe.

Where Else But Back to Fes

Continuing the journey through Morocco and picking up where we left off (hoping that Norm had a nice vacation break during the interim).

Looks like someone is welcoming us in (just thought of the fairytale, Little Red Ridding Hood when the wolf invited Red Ridding Hood in and to come closer) but I just shot the photo and ran to catch up with our tour.

A nice door with a padlock!

And the final door for this post, the best for the last.

Fes Doors, Continued

Time certainly flies when you’re sheltered in place.  I wonder if this is how the time appears to incarcerated prisoners.  It’s already mid August and the fall season is just around the corner.

I lost track of the days and just realized that I have to get some doors ready to post on Thursday Doors.  I admire the door bloggers that are always posting their doors and, posting on other days of the week!  That’s dedication!

I’m going to share a few doors this week, again.  In Fes, we did see the tannery where they prepared the leather for their products and when I get to that part of the tour I’ll share some photos of what we saw and describe what we smelled.  But here’s the doors as we wandered through the alleyways of the Fes medina.

Corner door, looks typically ornate and secure in Morocco.

Door number 4, again looks sturdy and interestingly looks like a riveter gone wild.

The last door is a 2fer 1.  Most impressive are the signs on the wall and the blue brick pavement.

Fes, Morocco

I’ve missed a couple of weeks again. It’s hard to keep track of time when you’re sheltered in place for so long!  I’m going to begin where Chefchaouen ended which happens to Fes.  I actually started the Moroccan doors posts with Fes, here’s that link to that post: https://undiscoverdimagesamongstus2.wordpress.com/2020/04/02/old-world/

Rather than redo some of the history of Fes, you can check the link above while I’ll post a couple of doors from Fes.

The first door looks like old tech security door locks (6 locks but who’s counting?).

And for the second door, a unique ornate door.

Last Doors from the Blue City

The will tour continue to other Moroccan cities but I am posting a couple more doors from Chefchaouen for this week.

Actually, this photo has a couple of doors but I guess you can say, something fishy is going on here.

And the door is closed as we move on to the next city.
