Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio

You have seen this town and most of its doors already but the photos are new. On Sunday I hopped up with my passing visitors and clicked around while they climbed the tower.

Sunday was lovely. Yesterday you saw the poppies we found, and today you will see our nearest town, Capalbio on the hill, the view from up there, and some of its doors. I could add – again, but newly captured with my new old camera.

Whereas today it’s raining and bestia didn’t wish to go on his morning walk until 1 pm, which is lucky since I went to sleep at 7 am. Luka lost brutally, twice in a row now. I have 123 unopened posts from you all to view and some actual work to do, but all I wish is just chill and do nothing. I’m sure it will pass, eventually.

One of these Thursdays I will post a door story (or poem, we will see) written to one of the doors gathered here for Dan’s second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge, and you can do the same by the end of this month and leave the link with your story in the comments there.

And now welcome to our Sunday, May 1st. This is Capalbio in the south of Tuscany. I wish you well.

  1. The cheerful window may be my favourite of all here: for the yellow pansies, the arch inside, and the wonderful sculptures on top! 🙂 Lovely lovely Tuscany. I’m so glad you got out and had a chance to speak in your own language.

    1. Thank you, Crystal, I’m so glad too! This is what I need, a little push to go somewhere or I just don’t!! And what you say makes me really happy that I included that window shot. It simply forced me to post it. 🙂

      1. It grows and overtakes everything. I have been digging it up in my yard for years now and, if you leave one little piece of root in the ground, I grows and grows and grows. It is pretty when it is in bloom, but I am not a fan.

  2. Shame on you for doubting how your photo would turn out. Your photos are always wonderful. I like the gate. I love the courtyard, and I like seeing all the doors. Up until 7:00am? That’s a rough night. I hope you had an easy day today. I look forward to your entry in the writing challenge – thanks for advertising it!

    1. Thank you, Dan. Well, I had doubts only for that gate as it was in the shadow. No more doubts! 🙂 Tonight it’s happening again. The game starts at 3.30 am my time. I’m just going to pull an all-nighter… I like the doors you have gathered for the challenge and looking forward to writing and reading door tales.

    1. Thank you, Jo. Less is more is not something that translates to my brainwaves very well. 😀 123 are only those that Gmail is counting. Then there are all those in ‘social’ compartment… And yes, you included, sorry to say. The poems in April messed up my routine. It will get better.


  3. I can absolutely see why that green door is your favourite! It’s beautiful in its own right, plus it has that amazing view! And of course your two photos of it incorporate leading lines – had you realised? 😆

    1. Hahha, Sarah, no, I hadn’t! I’m not so sure that I understand this concept very well. I can see that the railing can be a sort of leading line, but what about the other photo of the same door? I’m really glad that you like it, and that you help me see it. ❤
