Thursday Doors 13/52 Morro Bay, CA

I spent the week-end in Morro Bay, CA. and of course couldn’t help but notice a door or two. 🙂

The first door I encountered that I loved were the built-in sliding blind doors that covered our sliding glass doors in our room at Embarcadero Inn. I liked them so much I’m going to have them put on our sliding glass door when we replace the 5 doors we didn’t do in the remodel last year. That will be after we finish the new retaining walls, and planting in the backyard which is happening this week.

Anyway, here’s what those blinds look like. We had a view of the Harbor, but not Morro Rock.

Nº 495- I liked the waves etched in the glass on this door.

Nº 830- Sun~n~Buns Bakery’s side door +1- there were delicious odors wafting from this door. It was with great will-power that we walked by it without going in. We were saving our appetites for dinner.

Nº 1185- The Portal Window and flag drew me to this door, the menu drew us in for dinner. Great American Fish Co.  We both had the Mesquite Grilled Talipia. It was so tender, and good I ate the whole filet!

I couldn’t pass up the doors on two boats docked in the harbor. Could you? 🙂

This first one I liked how weathered the door was, and I saw an abstract image in it. I wish I had my longer lens with me just then!

Papagallo II the yacht’s door struct me as being clean, classic, and the oak gave me the impression that it was sturdy and strong.  Is she a yacht? I don’t know boats very well, but I know what I like! 🙂

There were two unusual  homes that I came across while keeping an eye out for doors, although one is only a partial door I hope Norm, and the Door Purist forgive me for this entry, but I couldn’t resist.

The Windmill House: Was the home of Gladys Walton the silent film star. She added on the Windmill late in her life.  She also built a Lighthouse house in Morro Bay, but I missed that one! She died in Morro Bay at the age of 90. You see, I could only see part of the upper door on the balcony, and the back door due to the fence.

Nº 1270- The Pueblo House- I thought this house was really out of place here at the coast, but perhaps not being California. While I was taking photos of the doors, and house the owner or resident came home. Thankfully, he was really nice and thought it was cool that I was taking photos of his doors. PHEW!

I didn’t manage to get a door photograph that I really liked this past week, so I dug deep into my archives…all the way back to 2010 for this image.

Nº 40- I’ve had a thing for red doors a long time. 🙂  I could sit here with my morning or afternoon tea watching the world pass by.

Thursday Doors 10/52 Nº21245

Saturday we had pouring rain and a lot of wind and there was quite a bit of debris all over the steep road when He-Man and  I went for a “stretch our legs” walk Sunday morning.

Most folks had already swept up or were in the process, but these owners must have slept in. Nº21245

… continuing on with the statuary decor  by the door theme I spied this door- Nº12903

Nº12903

I like the design, and how they carried that into the glass panels. I really like the Lions guarding the doors.  I don’t care for the door knocker on the door. I find it distracting, and only one door has a knob. I would have two. That’s just me.  Maybe they were going for a Yin-Yang thing?

Thursday Doors 9/52 San Francisco

Copyright © 2016 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

While I was in San Francisco walking around North Beach last week I couldn’t help but take notice of the doors;  quite a few caught my eye.

Nº 551, 553 & 555 – I love these doors, moulding, and color scheme.

Nº 551, 553, 555

Nº 1405- These are so modern or perhaps it’s Art Deco? I think it’s a bit glamorous. 🙂

I really like this shade of yellow. It’s so uplifting; like sunshine.

Nº1405

Nº 4:  The wire work, arch, and color scheme grabbed my attention with this door. I saw it while on my way to lunch, and had to stop to make the image.

Nº 4

Nº 325, & Nº 327- These were by far the cheeriest, and prettiest doors I saw on my walk-about. They were also pretty steep. 🙂

Nº 325 & Nº 327

I have more doors from this walk about that I’ll be sharing at some point.

Thursday Doors 8/52 Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

Copyright ©2016 Deborah M. Zajac: ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I’m a bit out of sync with my posts this week since I was hanging with the family, and chasing Horsetail Fall light this past week-end.  I didn’t find any doors to photograph this past week so I’m diving into my archives for Norm’s Thursday Doors this week.

This little church parish of Immaculate Conception is out in the countryside where I go birding quite often. It stands at the end of a small community called Tres Pinos in the township of Hollister, CA.

The Church building was built in 1892 by Father Bernard Smythe across the street from its current location. The land to build the church was purchased for $75.oo.

The Parish was moved to its present location when Hwy 25 was constructed.

The doors are humble…

the land, garden and sculptures around them are beautiful.

Winged Victory was constructed in 1945 as a memorial to World War II.

Sculpture “Father, if it is possible let this cup pass away from me. Not as I will, but as you will” ~Jesus Christ: Matthew 26:39

The centerpiece of the 14 Stations of the Cross is Michael Angelo’s Pieta. It was sculpted in Carrera, Italy by Enrico Toricelli and donated by Fr. Stuhlmann and his brother in memory of their mother. The base of the sculpture was built by Edward Matthews.
