Thursday Doors 28/7/22: Piran in July

All these doors were captured this month on the coast of Slovenia. There are worse times and places to be.

All but two, that is. Yesterday, just as I was choosing doors for this post, the following door came flying in by way of Crystal, my friend from Oregon who visited us last year and just may buy the property in Piran next to my parents (never say never). She made me happy with her recent post Linked where she shows that we are exactly that, and now she sends me this door saying that it reminded her of me:

This hand painted door is at the McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. Photo: Crystal

Let me tell you: there are worse things than be reminded of by way of a beautiful door. But you know that. You are the Thursday Doors crowd.

As a side note, I’m sad to report that my Tamron lens is slowly going to the dogs, even though it’s not even one year old. At times, and it’s happening more and more, it refuses to – and I lack the correct vocabulary – automatically send the darkness where it’s needed so that portions of my photos remain white blobs and I get the error message.

Just as this post was almost ready, Crystal sent me another photo from the same place. How wonderful is this painting?

Photo: Crystal, with eternal thanks.

And this is Piran in July, at your service. If you ever come over, all these doors will seem so very familiar and will remind you of me.

  1. I love the artwork on the Sea door

    I also love the painted door and the painting form your friend. You should remember that painting for next year’s writing challenge.

    I have never seen a door where the glass panel drops back like it does in that phot near the bottom. That’s so interesting.

    The narrow streets and the structures between buildings on the sides of those streets always make me think of you 🙂

  2. I like the sea door best, and I also like the green door with the bird alert, and the side church door with the simple wooden patterns and the door with boat-on-stone because it’s similar. I’m glad you like the doors I sent and I am so discouraged to hear about your dying lens.

    1. Thank you, Martina. On this door is the only way I like jellyfish. I get the “error” message more than in 50% cases after I click. I try to figure out why it happens and how to fix it but so far no luck. I know, I need to visit a proper photo studio and ask. Nothing like that in our little Piran.


  3. Those are some of the most unique doors I’ve seen on here. The window in the door made me wonder why more people don’t have that. Then Hubby pointed out, it would be easy to reach in that window and unlock the door. Meh. Fine.
