At the end of January and beginning of February, I spend a rather rainy and windy weekend in Antwerp, Belgium. Due my recent blogging break, I did not write anything special about this weekend trip, the truth be told it was not a very eventful trip, the rain did keep me from exploring most of the city.
With Thursday Doors in mind, a linkup in which I had never participated in, I snapped some pictures of doors which I walked past or through. As the linkup celebrates it’s one year anniversary this week, well I did have to join in, didn’t I?
This first door can be found in one of the nicer streets in Antwerp. It is quite majestic, but is in desperate need of a renovation, seen the area where it is, that will most lies happen sooner or later. Maybe the wood is naked, waiting for a new coat of paint?
By the water, an old citadel can be found, we passed through this archway on our walk. I do wonder who else did go through it in the past…
And finally, a very impressive door of the Cathedral of our Lady. It was a huge door! As there are primary school kids on a field trip in front of it, it seems even bigger. I would have liked to get a shot of the door without anyone, but that was not possible, even though the day was windy and the city seemed to be mostly lifeless.
Have you seen any great doors recently? Have you travelled to Antwerp? Isn’t it strange how the weather changes our perception of things?
My heart goes out to Belgium!
