Wednesday Doorway

SDP  5-18-11
This is my first time participating in Wednesday Doorway, which is a bit surprising since I do like a nice, eye catching doorway. While I was taking a stroll last night through the Burns Court neighborhood in Sarasota, this front door captured my attention. The neighborhood is full of adorable bungalows, many dating back to the 1920's when Owen Burns established the area. As you can imagine, there's probably a lot of upkeep with them. It was only after I downloaded this shot that I noticed the door is two-toned. Someone seems to be doing a nice job restoring it. I'll make a point to return this summer and see the final product.

Maybe they want it two-toned? :-) 'Tis gorgeous. Love those old houses but you're right, they are a heck of a lot of work.

I'm going to try to remember to post the osprey photos on our Stone Creek blog tomorrow...but don't laugh too hard! They aren't nearly as good as your osprey shot!

Oh I love doorways, I have to check this one out! I have many from the Ca da Zan. I like this door photo!!

Nice one, SRQ. I wonder what their plan is, with the two tones. Maybe Jacob is right about wanting it that way. I suspect they left it this way to think about which they like better, and it will in time all be refinished.

Nice job on the doorway photo.

When we visited Ireland last year, we found that they make a really big deal about decorating doorways. There is actually a strip of apparently famous doorways that many of the tours stop to see.
