As per Norm’s invitation at Thursday Doors, here’s my 2018 year-end recap. As usual, I’m nearly the last one to join the party but made it in just under the wire. Check out more photos of fascinating doors and the places they were discovered from all around the world by visiting Norm’s site and clicking on the blue frog.
Unlike other years, 2018 was not a big year of travel. Most of my “doorscursions” were in my own backyard, here in Hong Kong or close by.
My favorite four of the year are as follows:
Taking a stroll through the 1881 Heritage historical site located in Tsim Sha Tsui (Hong Kong), I came across the Ball Tower (or Signal Tower), elevated and overlooking Victoria Harbour. The bench outside the tower was a very peaceful place to sit awhile.
Like many others, I’m always drawn to a red door. This one lives in Kowloon Tong and is technically a gate leading into a courtyard. But, I count it as a door. In Chinese culture, a red door implies a happy home inside.
This door is located in UlanBator, the capital city of Outer Mongolia, a place I love to visit.
This door is from the Royal Ger at the re-creation of a Chinggis Khaan settlement in the countryside outside Ulan Bator.
Well, those are my favorites for 2018. I hope to have more to share in 2019. Here’s wishing you a wonderful holiday and a happy new year!!
