Thursday Doors 46/52 Illuminated Door

One of the nicest things about the time change is that I am able to see doors in a new light.

I liked the twinklie lights, and the warm glow emanating from the door windows.

      1. On my to-do list is to take a number of photography courses. I really don’t know how to use my camera very well and if I want to take better photos, I should start to devote some time to learning.

        1. That sounds like a great place to start.
          I don’t do well with tests so I’ve been learning through trial and error, workshops, and hanging out with more knowledgeable photographers than myself. The LONG road. 🙂
          You’ll be running rings around me after one class I’m sure!

          1. Yeaaaah – I wouldn’t bet on it 🙂 I’ve had the concept of aperture and shutter speed explained NUMEROUS times and it just doesn’t stick to me.
            It’s a physics thing – it makes my eyes glaze over.

            1. Ah, well the Math part of the Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO boggles my mind and makes it go black, but…I was able to figure it out using the book by Brian Peterson Understanding Exposure 3rd Edition

              It’s all about telling a story, and the Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are the tools one uses to tell the story you want to tell.
              If I can help or answer a question just shoot me an email! You’re a lot smarter than I am …you are! So, if I can get this you can!!

  1. Ooooo! I’m not generally in favor of Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, but I make an exception for white lights, especially twinkly ones. This is beautiful and so happy-making! I wonder if they’d call the cops if I put up a tent on their sidewalk so I could look at that illumination all the time?

  2. What a beautiful and “timeless” door presentation, Deborah! I happen to like twinkle lights on decks, on arches or around a door. This was a warm and welcoming entrance.

    1. Thank you so much Robin!
      I have white twinkle lights on my back patio. I’ve thought about adding them to the fencing around our deck but haven’t done it as we spend more time on the patio than the deck right now.

      At Christmas we put up a strand of old fashioned colored Christmas lights.

  3. Lovely capture, Deborah with all these lights bouncing off! Even without the lights it would have been a great capture, because of the warm yellow light coming from the inside. My decorations usually end up a week before Dec. 25. Maybe they just wanted to be the first on the block:) Hope you saw I emailed you.

    1. Thank you so much Jesh! I think you’re right about the warm light being so nice…with or without the lights.

      I’ve been fighting a cold and sore throat since yesterday so am behind a bit with emails. I did read it! I hope it’s a fabulous turnout and huge success! xx

  4. Bah humbug! We have a half dozen neighbors on our street who are already lighting up their Christmas lights and it’s only mid-November for crying out loud. I think they should pass a law that forbids this until Dec 1st 😉
    It is a lovely shot though 😀

    1. I didn’t really get a “Christmasy” feeling when I looked at this door and photographed it since there weren’t any poinsettias, a Holiday Wreath, or specific holiday decorations near or around the door. I just thought they lit up their front courtyard and potted garden in the evenings.

      I’m now curious to see if they change the lights to colored ones, and if they put out any Holiday decor. I’ll have to start walking by there after Thanksgiving and see if there are any changes.

        1. Me too normally, but I get that bah-humbug feeling about those white lights that are supposed to resemble icicles, and the strands of colored lights. Those say Christmas to me.

          I’ve seen several houses fully decorated already and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! To them I say Bah-humbug, it’s too early!!!

        1. It’s my favorite Holiday too. I don’t put up decorations until after Thanksgiving either. Thankfully He-Man and I are on the same page and he takes down the Christmas lights and outdoor decorations right after Christmas or New Year’s Day week-end.

          Oddly enough: Last week-end daughter bought a 3ft tall lighted Abdominal Snowman you know the character from the classic Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas cartoon…it’s been sitting on my hearth since she unboxed it. I’ve been nagging her to get put away until after Thanksgiving. I’ll have to put it in the garage myself b/c she likes it up this early. 😦
