Thursday Doors (and Lady in airport X-ray)

For some Thursday Doors this week, this painted-brick building (in Richmond, VA) stood out to me. Notice the three diverse doors – only one seems to be working (far right).  This is “so” Richmond. 

That tree had some nice winter interest (this was early February 2018) – and the rooftop gadgets suggest this building might have some business activity. 

Right down the road – a nice street shot shows you people lined up at the end of a workday. And who gets to have the number “50” put on their license plate?  I thought that’d be taken – or is this government issued? hm 

 

We saw the man with the bag a few times that day:

 Also from early February – did you hear about the lady who did not want to let go of her bag at the airport X-ray machine – so she went on the conveyor belt with her bag? Hey sometimes you just have to keep that bag with you at all times…. ha

And now for my closing door  – no bags here – just some light beams….  quite inviting… 
🙂 

 

T o see more doors or to join in with Norm’s challenge – go HERE.

  1. The 1st picture, the building has some weird doors, I think. They look something like wooden shutter. I love how you experimented with light and a half closed door. So many patterns created. How is that possible. Usually only one big ray beam comes through the gaps. Did you try some sort of experiment ?

    1. Hi Ady – thanks for the comment – and that last picture witht he beams – I have NO IDEA!!
      That is a place we do sunday night yoga – and the beams happen in their own.
      I have similar rays beam in other places – including a door at home.
      I think it is from the light sources – the one on the photo has some ceiling lights –
      but no experiment and that was actually a quick phone pic.
      I did edit it a tiny put – but very simple.
      thanks for asking.

      and good point on the shutter look – I bet those are service doors – some of the old hotels have similar slits and we heard it was “service” and maintenance back in the days

    1. i know – but maybe something sketchy was going on and she sensed someone would steal from her – maybe a family heirloom ring she say someone eye-balling??

  2. Nice shadows in that last shot but your doors are overshadowed by that weird woman!! Why get any more X-rays than you need…provided that’s not fake news. I wouldn’t think they’d let her.

  3. Interesting post. Three diverse doors but only one works (Richmondesque). The rooftop gadgets look a little disorderly? Wonder what the business activity is; but the man you saw a few times has beautiful tresses or is it some scarf? The X-ray woman can’t be from the US? And the best is saved for the last: inviting indeed, and not only is it ‘brightly positive’ but look at the shadows – lines of white dividing lovely triangles.

    1. I replied to this but it disappeared – and further I found this comment in :”trash” not spam – so weird.
      and in my other comment I noted how we call those tresses “dreads”
      and they were cool.
      And thanks for the term Richmondesque
      🙂
      and loved the artsy description on that final photo.

      thanks M

  4. From what I think the roof gears in the picture is, I think that build is not a simple or ordinary build. That gadget on the roof looks like a bunch of microwave antennae. I am not sure you see the car with “50” on the license tag near that same building or not. If it is that might be government related. Hmm.

    Oh, I love the light in the last door picture!

    1. I like your thinking – and maybe we are on to something here – just kidding –
      but thanks for explaining the gear on the roof.
      and maybe that is a new type of escape room that offers some electric shock – kidding kidding

    1. yeah – I was wondering about that too -but maybe that was part of why she wanted to go with her bag – things were a little sketchy ?

    1. you made a really great point – I wonder about the radiation exposure too –
      and thx for the info on the plate – It looked like it was a State kind of vehicle.

    1. well thanks for saying that – and would you believe this post started off with that single photo?
      I was done and was about to post (a single pic) and then saw the trio pic from Feb – and thought “let’s add it – yeah, why not….”
      lol

  5. Never know what kind of doors you’ll find in some of the old buildings! Love the light beams! I must say, though, that woman seems to be taking the advice of not letting her bags out of her sight just a bit to the extreme! LOL!

    1. thanks for the fun comment and laughed because Oh my goodness – that phrase is embedded in us when we travel – “do not leave your bags alone” and they ask “did you have your bags out of sight at any time”
      and well, she did take it literal – lol

  6. That peek of light is pleasant. I likey.
    I also like that building with its odd doors and windows. It’s interesting. I would have photographed that one, too.
    I do like to keep my bag about me, but not enough to get ON the conveyor belt… Hm…

    Here, the plates like that are state government plates.

    1. Thanks Joey – and yeah – I watch my bag closely too – and I have stood there to grab it right when it comes out of the X-ray line – (some people let their bag sit in the mid of bags while they re shoe) – but no belt for me either – lol
      but it looks like she has some cute high heels on – a nice height and width – lol
