Oh these are wonderful photos Willow! Makes me want to go...

Oh and are you going to get a really big memory card or take more than one???

Flower said...

Love the doors!! The colors are intersting and so are the shapes!
It also looks like there is a "drinking" theme hidden in them!

Knitting Linguist said...

Those are great door photos! Also, thanks for the blog comment -- I think I do have enough yarn for the drive, but I appreciate the facilitation in the suggestion to maybe visit my lys :) I might just do that anyway; just doing my part to support small businesses through this recession, right? I'm so bummed I'll be out of town for the quilt shop round robin -- there's a wonderful little shop right down the street from where I live. It's probably just as well, though, as I do NOT need another craft right now! :)

Those are great photos and great architecture. My son loves photography and he photographed several doors in New Orleans. Those were great photos. They are framed and in his home.

Leslie said...

Awesome doors Willow! Thanks!

Enjoyed all your English doors, but I think my favourite must be the Twinings one. For me, it has an extra bit of innocent magic not often found in a door.

Had to laugh, being a Brit - good to see all these English doors! Lovely choice.

A few more on mine....!

Britt-Arnhild said...

A lovely collection.
I would love to open each and every one of them to find out what is hidden behind.

Elizabeth said...

Yes, it's Twinings Tea for me - but the others were lovely too.
Isn't this fun!

Amongst The Oaks said...

Love your photos. I have that same one of the door in a door at Oxford.
Hugs, Laura

Roxie said...

What splendid photos. What made you focus on doors while you were in England? They are so evocative!

Islandsparrow said...

great doors - your post gives me some photo ideas since I'm heading to London this spring.

rochambeau said...

Lovely lovely doors, Willow :-) I remember visiting France some 15 yrs ago and being enamored with their balcony iron works.

christine mercer-vernon said...

great doors! i particularly like the starbucks door, i am a huge coffee drinker and my friends go to starbucks frequently, but we have none this charming!! i love that it's not the commercialized storefronts we are used too.

artgirlATL said...

I love getting to travel via Willow. Hugs from your buddy the Granny!

Sara said...

Oh how I love English doors! thank you for sharing these examples...what a wonderful thing that you have gotten to see them in person!

Jane said...

Lovely to see some English doors, I shall be taking more notice of doors around me. All doors at work are double glazed metal doors. Jane x

Amongst The Oaks said...

Sorry to answer your comment on my blog this way, but I couldn't "reply".
Yes, I've visited Mottisfont Abbey. The garden is fabulous! Love, love, love it. See my post on 17 November, 2007.

I love that door with the big slanted bush growing on top. How great!

somepinkflowers said...

ohohohoho...

is that last door
from my earl grey tea company?

:-)


how cool
that they would have
such a stylish door!

thanks ever-so for sharing...

Sue said...

Lucky for me that the Doors of the World have opened to show me your work and world. I'm enjoying this trip around the globe and meeting wonderful artists and bloggers like you. Your doors are a wonderful portrait of English culture! Best wishes.

England has so many legendary doors and then the doors that just have character but are less well known. I love these ones -- and I love the Twinings photo!! What a charming building!

Bethany Hissong said...

I have always loved door photos and yours are really great Willow! I found myself just staring at every detail. You are so lucky to have been able to go there. It has me thinking about doing a "Doors of Lancaster" series!! :)

La La said...

Love the photos. Beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are very welcome any time.

AnnieElf said...

What a fantastic collection of doores. All so beautiful and beckoning.

Amongst The Oaks said...

Willow,
Mottisfont is grander and laid out more like a manor with different fields and two walled gardens. They have a huge rose garden with that famous white bench below the pink roses that climb up the wall. Great photo op!
Tintinhull is on a smaller scale; more residential. But I liked the feeling of rooms there. And it had ideas that maybe some of us could actually duplicate.
But they're both great, really.
Hugs, Laura

Joanne said...

These doors are wonderful! I love that you showed us what Starbuck's looks like in other parts of the world from our own! (i.e. coffee drinker talking!) Thanks for the "tour" of your doors.

kate said...

I have been enjoying the different 'Doors' posts. What a wonderful idea! You have beautiful photographs here.

Mary said...

Willow,

The doors are awesome. Thanks so much for sharing.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

I so enjoyed visiting your doors. We stopped in Bath on a trip from London to Wales and were charmed by the fantastic architecture and scenery.
Your doors are wonderful.
