Thursday Doors – Vintage Surprise

The arrival of a couple of 1930’s style vintage wedding cars was a pleasant surprise when my grandson, Lukas, was capturing some Thursday Doors photos on his trip to Antrim Castle Gardens. The chauffeurs were very friendly and even posed for him. The two door Silver Beauford had beautiful dark red leather interior while the seven seater Silver Imperial Landaulette had lovely cream seating. I’ll leave a link to their website at the end of the post.

Now, onto some nice images of the gardens. The tree below has been trained to grow in a spiral shape. I love how the shadow makes it look like as if a snake is wound around it.

Crossing the bridge brings us to some beautiful river views.

In the distance you can see a ferris wheel that has been set up in the Market Square of Antrim town for the summer.

Over on Dan’s blog you’ll find a variety of posts from around the globe with lots of interesting doors and buildings. Thanks again, Lukas, for contributing to another Thursday Doors and sharing that lovely vintage surprise with us.

    What an interesting gallery today, Jean. The cars are remarkable. I checked their site. I like the idea of being chauffeured in a red Ferrari πŸ˜‰ While the doors are great, I think I prefer the river views. They look so peaceful. I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

    Looks lovely! Where I live, all is dry and brown so it’s nice to see a greener part of the world!

  8. Wonderful glimpses. I like that snake tree too. Just yesterday I was standing by the road in shade, but it was 36 degrees, for two hours, taking photos of oldtimers whiz by. Result: 300 really not that good photos. πŸ˜€ Lucky that I’m not a pro. These two are magnificent.

    The twisting tree is amazing. Any indication of its age? I cannot imagine how long this grooming must take but obviously an exercise for the patient gardener!
