Thursday Doors


The sunshine over Youghal was so bright this week it almost got in the way of my Thursday Doors shots – as you can see from the image above. Some of the photos I took with my phone turned out so bright they’d blind you if I posted them. Mind you, I’m not complaining, we’ve been waiting a long time for those blue skies and warm days.


There is a nice little dock along this street but as the weather was so good, many of the boats that moor there were out in the bay or upriver.



I’m sure this old building has a door somewhere but I couldn’t see it because of a high wall. I stuck my phone up over it to take this shot. Thanks for stopping by my blog and if you’d like to see a wide variety of interesting doors from around the globe, head on over to Norm’s blog – you won’t be disappointed. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh golly – I wish I was there! Here in San Francisco – June is often called “Gloom” because of the persistent fog!

    Great sunny photos – at last! Yes, that’s what I noticed when in Holland the sun is shining, there seems to be more contrast, than the Mediterranean areas. It also may have to do with our eyes, suddenly having to adjust to more light?

  3. Love that last shot work. ๐Ÿ˜€ Well done. I had to do similar, through cracks in the wall, to see inside a 1200 yr. old mosgue.

  5. Great doors! I love the last red one because of the lock and mail slot being so high – makes me think someone tall lives there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had to put my phone over my head to get my door shot too. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’ve always loved red doors. There’s just something about them… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Me, too, Linda. We recently bought an old house to renovate and I’ve already been looking at red doors – even though it will probably be next year before we get round to changing the front door, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really like your selection of side-by-side doors … all of them very interesting. My favourites though are in the 2nd photo. The red and ivory doors really complement one another.

    Gotta love a nice red door. And despite the lack of door in that last shot, I still love that old building.

  13. I love the doors with the stained glass, probably give a nice effect indoors when the sun shines. Struggling with the sun shining bright sound familiar. On the one side we are so glad with those rays, on the other the contrast can be fierce and does not look good on a picture. Yesterday I had the same problem trying to capture a view from a window in a rather dark room. I’ll see what I can do with processing, so maybe I will post it one of these Mondays.

    • We had such a grey winter that I’m willing to sacrifice the quality of my photos for the lovely sunny days we’ve been having. Maybe if I invested in a decent camera instead of using my phone I might not have the same problems, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I have a nice camera, but not a DSLR, especially because I want to take it with me everywhere I go and put it in my bag. Still coming to terms with Tv, Av, etc., though. But as long as we are having fun, it’s ok with me.

  14. Those two sets of side by side doors are nice. I like the glass in the weathered yellow door the best.

    It looked like a lovely day to be out on a doorscursion!

    You must be so happy to finally have sun in your part of the world. Our endless summer just keeps on keeping on and it is nearly the time for winter, according to the calendar!!!

    Lovely sunny days! Hope the weather stays like that. Youghal is a beautiful town, I love the lighthouse, and always marvel at the green and purple rocks when the tide is out.
