Best of Thursday Doors 2021

Since this is the last Thursday Doors post of the year, let’s have 30 of my favourite doors posted in 2021.

This year has been spread over two blogs, so the first half and a bit of my Thursday Doors can be found on my previous blog Mexcessive.

With August we have all moved to this blog where one of the most memorable Thursday Doors post as such, with no door that would stand out but as an experience, must have been Doors for lunch. Remember that terrace view and the food?

After I had a look at all these doors again, I have chosen 30 most representative ones, closest to my heart. They have all been posted this year and mostly photographed too, but some of them are from the prepandemic times, such as the Farnese and Viterbo doors.

The gallery starts with five door gifts, including last week’s Oregon bird sanctuary gate gifted by Crystal and famous uncle’s fridge door. Then follow Slovenian doors, including the featured photo that father took at the Betnava Castle, and the ones from Italy are not far behind.

Under the gallery is something that I played around with only to realise that a gif (most probably) would not be accepted in the new Thursday Doors badge contest which our host Dan is organising. Still, have a look. But I include also my second, official badge proposition.

Be well, enjoy the holidays and keep your doors open or closed, depending on whether you have to embrace something or let it go.

First, the gif I made thinking it would certainly attract attention if added to every Thursday Doors post, but it is 2 MB big even after compression.

That’s why my official proposal for our new badge is this:

  1. I consider you the queen of doors:) I love the first capture, and my favorites of yours are the blue detailed door on the right, as well as the fox with his paws on the door. Wishing you a very merry Christmas, and all the best for the year 2022, Manja!

    1. Ha, indeed, you have been with me or in many of the same locations, Crystal. You know! 🙂 Still, I had been fearful of even worse heat that what we had. It was not so terrible. 😉 Thank you for your gate again, it’s getting lots of deserving love from my visitors.

  2. Given all the doors you’ve had, Manja, I don’t know how you got it down to 30. These are wonderful, and I remember so many of them. I can’t pick a favorite but I love the one with your mom on the balcony and the one your uncle took of the important door. I also really like the fox door from last week.

    We can’t have a gif for the badge for two reasons. 1) I don’t thinks it’s supported on my sidebar, and 2) gifs make me nauseous. However, your second entry is fine.

    1. Oh my, Dan, I never thought of your second reason. So sorry! Do you wish that I send you my other proposal by mail so that you don’t have to look at the gif again? And thanks, I did manage to keep them at 30. 😀 This is a fun tradition and I’m glad you continue with it.

  3. Your mom’s witch friend’s door quite steals the show! Though your uncle has made an excellent point with his, ha ha! Absolutely love the wire sculpture of the gymnast. Perfect place to put it, so well thought out – great shot. Superbly framed with the light, the man walking by and his shadow 🙂
