Thursday Doors: Inside my Building

This post is Inspired by Thursday Doors, hosted by Norm Frampton. For more interesting doors from all around the globe, check it out.


The building I live in has twenty-four floors with six flats per floor.  As I thought out-loud what my next Thursday door post should be, my husband suggested, “There are a lot of interesting doors in our building waiting to be captured by your camera.” =)

Therefore, we set out to capture the interesting doors in our building.  We entered the stairwell, climbed the twelve steps to the next floor, walked the hallway looking for doors, then repeated that twenty-four times.  I was quite tired at the end but it was a good workout and fun to find more interesting doors than I had imagined.  Here are a few:


Doors often display the personality of its owner.

Every door is an entryway to a unique world just beyond.


I didn’t pause very long in front of the doors I took photos of.  That would be strange and a little creepy.  However, as I clicked the shots I heard talking, laughing, music, and more inside.

Life was happening just beyond the doors.


In my building, there is a lot of life happening!

Reaching the top, I gasped for air as we walked through the door to the roof.  We were greeted by a beautiful view at dusk.


Thank you for stopping by!

    Brenda, I love all the doors, particularly with the branch/nests and what a wonderful view from the top and living within minutes from the coast/lake…beautiful! The variety of doors is amazing, showing the huge range there is in personal tastes! Isn’t it amazing how we often look but don’t see the beauty right on our doorstep! Great post!

    1. “Isn’t it amazing how we often look but don’t see…” is a very true statement. I’ve lived in this building for a year and never even noticed the difference in the doors on my own floor. I too love the branch/nest one, the person living inside seems like someone I’d want to meet. =) Thanks so much for commenting and hope you are having a nice weekend!

        I agree, I’d be curious to meet them too! Funny really the unfounded assumptions we make…whereas a plainer door might actually bring us into a really quirky interesting home! You too, have a lovely weekend!

    Clever blog Brenda. I really liked the variety. I can’t imagine that anyone would get away with such personalization here, its a shame. Great view from your roof.

    What an excellent collection of doors! It’s pretty cool the building lets everyone have different doors. I would’ve thought most body corporate/ landlords would be against non-uniformity

    Great collection Brenda and so true – how often we miss the beauty right under our noses 🙂 That door with the shoes outside, I am pretty sure that Indians reside there (I can also suggest the likely region!) 😀 The last photo is awesome.

    1. Really!? That’s amazing that you can guess the region. =) It was a good reminder that many times in life, I don’t notice the details. Thanks for commenting, I love it!
