Thursday Doors

DoorThis photo was taken while walking in Bruges, Belgium. A canal runs between the two sides of the street so the houses that are seen in the window reflections are actually across the canal on the other side. If Bruges is not on your bucket list, might I be so bold as to suggest you add them. You won’t regret it. 🙂


“Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. The city-center Markt features horse-drawn carriage rides and 17th-century houses converted into restaurants and cafes, as well as the 13th-century belfry with its 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.”

  1. I thought you’d have some interesting door posts from over there! How pretty and unusual this one is ! 🙂

    I like how this lovely specimen is bathed in ice cold blue light! What a pretty “rose window” too. I wonder if it would be annoying to have that canal barricading your access to the other side of the street, or, more likely, they just get used to it. Nicer to look at than a busy highway, I suppose! Amazing to think of how many years this door has stood there, solidly built, letting generations and generations pass through its entry!

    For the non-travelers, how do you cross the street with a canal? Are there just a couple of places to cross , far from one another?

    I love how the curves are carried through from the steps to the door and transom and arch. This is a wonderful entrance.


  6. Thank you for sharing that beautiful photo with the reflections! Such a beautiful city!


  7. What a great door! I love the window above it!


  8. Now THAT’S a door!
    I used to stub my toes all the time while walking in Florence, Dublin and other cities with great doors.

    Beautiful lines in that photo – curved and straight ones combined so well. I visited Bruges once, about 40 years ago – would love to go again.


  15. Bruges is absolutely lovely, you’re right! Thanks for sharing this lovely pic!
