Time for Thursday Doors and today we have door photos from Richmond, Virginia.
Starting with the old wrap-around porch and center we have the simple screen door -and left back we have a door with that older double-window.
Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to have a small scraping tool to remove the chipped paint and prep this house for a new paint job. I also wonder who sat on this porch in its glory days. The time before there was air conditioning – you know, when a porch like this provided relief from the heat. Maybe a dog was there and some rocking chairs? Or maybe this church pew (below) was there?
Next up – this was down the road for the above house. The door and window – all closed off
Now we have old church doors. The painted door knobs and molding around them had unique character. The wear on these doors made me wonder the many folks that came and went through them. We were there that day because a former student invited me to come and hear her speak – and the hubs and I were honored to be a part of it. Right across the street was a house that I think I saw on an old TV show that featured an event in Richmond. I am going to try and look It up when I have time. If I find anything – I will be sure to share a post about it (for those that keep track of these little things bloggers share).
Closing doors are from the Virginia War Memorial.
I featured the VA Memorial little more in depth on June 6th (here) – but considering I took the doors there specifically for Thursday Doors, thought I would add a couple here today (and thanks Dan for the suggestion).
