Thursday Doors 26/1/23: More Piran doors

I had a hunch that there must be heaps of doors left from Piran on the Slovenian coast, where my parents are and where I spent last summer. This is correct. These are all from June.

I had several Thursday Doors posts from Piran this summer and yet failed to show all the doors. If you walk the dog twice a day, chances are that many doors will wink at you and show off or simply be glorious or derelict and imposing enough to attract attention.

And so sometimes you will fall, for not looking under your feet. It happened right next to that first house in the gallery. A couple ran over, I think they were Germans, bestia jumped on them since I let go of his leash as I fell, and all I thought of doing was check if my camera still worked. It did, but it might be it was when that error message started to flash.

Still, I was able to take all the subsequent photos and many more. My parents and uncle are there now, and sister will join them tomorrow, and I’ll be with them in thought. No matter that right now a harsh strong wind is blowing and it’s best to hide indoors.

  1. When I used to used to walk our dog, I couldn’t find more than three doors that didn’t look the same. This is a wonderful collection, Manja. I also like the one with the shell, but I’m amazed with the variety.

  2. Howdy, my sweets!

    You fell, Manga: please watch your step.
    Your instinct of check first if your camera works is precious. Shows how serious a photographer you are. I hope you weren’t hurt— really.

    That chained gate… auspicious!
    I like it that Bestia is with you all the time, or most of the time.
    As always, your photos are stellar.
    I loved the one of the gate with the butterfly. It shows shoes and the livelihood of humans inside. How lovely.
    Be well. Blessing you. Xoxo

    1. Hi, Selma, so good to hear from you. I’ve been a bit subdued and not diligent on other people’s blogs, I’m afraid.

      I love it when you call me Manga. It should be my super hero name.

      I fell but that was in June. I just scratched my leg but it faded soon. One rib hurt a bit too.

      You noticed the shoes! I haven’t. I had to go back and find them in the photo.

      And finally, a bit of basketball trivia: In the first two rounds of this year’s summer World Championships, team Slovenia will play their games in Okinawa! Manilla and Jakarta are the other two organisers. I understand that the Japanese especially desired to host Luka Dončić and his teammates. This is lovely. Greetings and hugs.


      1. Too bad I’m so far from Okinawa or I’d go take photos for you.
        Your Luka and team elucidate good sportsmanship. Japanese love that kind of spirit. Greetings and hugs to you. Manja my sweet. Blessings you. Xoxoxoxixoxixo

  3. No wonder that first one distracted you enough to fall, with all those interesting decorations! I’m the same if I fall – my first thought is always for my camera 🙂 SO far I have been lucky and not broken one (unlike bones, of which I’ve broken two!)

      1. Both times I was just careless – once in a restaurant in Marrakesh (broke a bone in my foot), and once falling over fishing ropes in Northumberland (broke a bone in my elbow)!


  4. Love the bike peeking out photo! Have missed visiting. Hubs is down & out in the hospital but keeping it low key and not publicizing it except away from my own blog. No visitors allowed. But I have time to catch up now and enjoy your lovely posts! Stay safe from falls!

  5. Hello, hello! Happy New Year, happy Chinese New year…
    (I feel so ashamed at not visiting for a while. Just had a complicated end of year and beginning, nothing important, but very busy.)
    Nice post. I think of you whenever I see a nice door here. I must do a door post…
    Hope all is well with you?
    Buon anno nuovo…

    1. Hi, Equinoxio. I’ve been very subdued on other people’s blogs too. It’s such a moment in time. No shame in that. We all do what we can.

      It’s wonderful to be thought of when faced with a beautiful door. Yes, please, do the door post! If you do it on Thursday, you can join our Thursday Doors.

      Here all is well and calm and a bit too cold for comfort but I know heat is just around the corner. Happy all new years to you too.

    1. Thank you, Dalo. I’m glad that you feel good around here. The Year of the Rabbit took me by surprise. I didn’t know it was a sign at all. Nobody I know is a rabbit. It started out well enough.
