Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy

I set out to find green doors in my archives and immediately had 50 photos from one year alone. That’s why today Italy, Slovenia next week.

Last week K. mentioned in a comment to my post that she liked green doors and I was reminded of the green door post I did once before. I decided to look for the green doors that I gathered after September 7th 2017 when it was posted. As soon as I finished browsing through 2018 I could stop, because I had over 50 already.

I decided to split them in half by countries, so today you get the ones in Italy and Slovenia will follow next week.

All today’s photos were taken between September 16th 2017 and October 1st 2018. I was astonished how busy I used to be, swishing between Tuscany and Rome and Slovenia like it’s nothing at all, while receiving visitors (including a familiar face next to the familiar door, as you will see at the end of the gallery).

Welcome and happy summer! We’ve had three quite hot days already.

(Mutters something barely audible about the Eurovision Song Contest and Mavs vs. Suns happening tonight again. But very quietly. On Tuesday I jinxed them both.)

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. I’m not surprised that you have so many beautiful green doors in your archive. This is acc CT wonderful collection. I like the one with the caption “lots of pretty doors” and the last one. Overlooking that view couldn’t be better.

  2. Green doors…are cheery, sometimes warm, pleasing to me, always a surprise. Wow Manja, 50 green doors is quite alot and kudos to you for going back to count. Very nice doors this week and seeing Norm is always a plus!

  3. Amazing photos! I just love all of the different shades of green doors! I don’t see too many green doors in my town, but then again, I don’t think our buildings are as old. The architecture of the buildings in your photos is lovely, too.

  4. I’m a fan of green doors too, and you do them justice. So hard to select a favorite, but I’ll try. The feature photo is splendid, and so many are evocative. The one I keep returning to is the door with the graffiti eye. Very meta. Also, thanks for the photo of the Terme di Saturnia. Fascinating.

    And I just checked the Mavs score. WHAT???!!! I’ll say nothing more…

    1. Haha, Carol Ann, thank you. I hope you’ll have the same reaction after tonight’s decisive seventh game. 🙂 I’m so curious if the system will let the Mavs win. Meta is my mom’s name and I’m so amused how this word is gaining momentum lately. More green doors – from Slovenia this time – coming up this Thursday. Thank you!

    1. Oh Norm, I fully intended to show you this post. Did I link to you on Twitter? I hope so. I’m sitting here too much. It’s time for more offline. I’m so glad that you saw it. Yes, time is passing like crazy. I hope you all both well and happy.

    1. Thank you, Sunra Nina. I often hear from people that they speculate and think about what goes on behind this or that door. I never do that. The door is there to separate us and them. Just like I rarely look in through windows. I do peek at the gardens though.

      1. Totally get it. Respecting the door’s destiny as boundary – I love that. There’s this-ness and there’s that-ness and that is how it should be. It makes separation okay. Thanks Manja for the food for thought! I can imagine you peeking in at the gardens! 🙂
