Not the best quality images for Thursday Doors this week, as they were taken from the car as we traversed Dublin city, so you’ll have to forgive me. I couldn’t pass them without capturing a few shots, Dublin is famous for its colourful doors, as you can see from the first photo.
It must have been bin day, but the doors are anything but rubbish.
I’ve included these because of their unusual colour. Dotted all over the city you’ll find black, red, all shades of blue, green and even bright yellow doors – this particular row had apricot and tan.
If any of you are familiar with horse racing this side of the Atlantic you will recognize the place name on the sign (if you have great eyesight it will help – sorry this one is so blurred). This is Cheltenham Place and the Cheltenham races were on that week in the UK. Unfortunately, Mr. R. picked up speed just as I was taking the shot. I think the name of the street had an affect on him, I must stop giving him oats for breakfast.
These poor neglected old houses have no doors at all. I wonder why they were all painted white. On the other side of the canal, the houses were in much better condition, as you can see from the next photograph.
I’ve put some more into a slideshow, including one of the beautiful ornate streetlamps you’ll find throughout the city.
This is what Dublin Doors would look like should they be placed next to each other. A rainbow of portals to feast the eyes on, colourful if somewhat blurred:
Many thanks for stopping by and sorry about the quality of the images but next week’s Thursday Doors will be a lot better as they were taken from the street – not the car. For a great selection of doors why not pay a visit to Norm’s blog and see what surprises await you there.
