Retrospective: We are Looking Back to January for these ‘Doors’

I was following Thursday Doors back then, but not posting to it.  But here we go, some Tiny Doors from my first posting for the Frugal Film Project.  The Featured Image is a Little Free Libraryon my street.

Walker Ranch Doors

I’ve done a lot of photography at Walker Ranch.  I’ve printed and displayed some too, but never focussed on the Doors…….So Let’s Go Crazy at the Ranch for this week’s Thursday Doors!

Retrospective: The Doors of Ft Lupton

There are many ‘Forts” in Colorado.  But none of them were military outposts.  Instead, these were fortified trading posts for Indigenous Peoples and early Trappers.

FtLupton_Front

Fort Lupton has been completely reconstructed on a site adjacent to the original location.  It was established in 1836 by Lancaster Lupton, a former soldier and West Point Graduate. Click on the link above for the details of the Founding of the Fort.   He had passed through the area with the Dodge-Leavenworth Expedition in 1834.

Trading Gate, interior, the Natives were kept in this smaller area and never allowed into the main Fort.

Check out the History of Ft Collins, Ft Morgan, Bent’s Fort and there are more Forts, some even were military…………

Retrospective: Mission Santa Ines

And of course a Door because it is Thursday……The side entry photographed better than the Main Entrance.  You may have noticed that this is Infrared.Mission_Side_Door1Mission_Side_Door2

Mission Santa Ines is located next to Solvang, California.  It was founded in 1804. I was visiting a friend in Santa Barbara back in 2017 when I made this visit.  I decided to use my Nikon-1, which was converted to full spectrum by KolariVision.  I then used an IR filter to limit the exposure to Infrared.

Church was in session, so I wandered around outside and focussed my photography there.  Obviously a full house with people standing in the doorway.

Views around the Courtyard,  Above Left to Right: St Francis, Shrine to Santa Ines, Jesus.

Finally, below, the Cemetery:

I had the Nikon-1 converted after much frustration with IR-films.  I do use IR-Sensitive Films and you’ll see some film tests coming soon.

Retrospectives are repostings of significant works from my old Photo Diary……….

And, some thought from yesterday’s Photo Diary on Windows and Walls……

Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph

Today’s door, from the First Floor Interior Main Hallway T-intersection:

When you turn right at the intersection above, you’re headed towards the Elevators…..More Doors, Right? And you are looking towards the main entrance door from the lobby at the end of this hall.

We toured the New Courthouse soon after it opening in 2016.  Of course the Thursday Doors gives me an opportunity to share now with my new Blogger Friends.

The Court of Appeals is located in the First Floor Lobby and the first Doors you see upon entry.

Our Doors Open Denver Tour was led by then Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Nancy Rice, who was involved in the design of the Building.  She was a Great Tour Guide because she loved the building!

A Thursday Door from Alcatraz

I have an earlier posting of this Door.  See my complete posting of this Door here.  Bringing it back now that I’ve joined the Thursday Doors Group……..And inspired by a post from Marla on the Move.

I realized that I had no Door planned for today.  OMG!  And I had just been sorting doors yesterday.  So I’m giving you one of my Indoor Doors.  From the Denver Architecture Foundation’s Doors Open Denver, the Evans School:

You know that I like interior spaces.  I know that I photographed the main entrance…. when I find it I will post it!
