Brick Door and Window

Another door photo inspired by Mike and his look at life – with a twist….

This building is a couple blocks down the same road from the Church/Barn Door photo and appears to be from the same era.ย  It appears to be used for music instruction, as I have seen children of all ages arriving and leaving with their cased instruments at all times of the morning and afternoon…from a regular door on the front of the building.

    If the door is forever closed, go through the window! Great catch! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is an interesting take, especially with the bricked in door, that once was, and the stress crack in the brick. These old buildings tend to lend character to our cities. I love the fact that people are beginning to restore and use many of these treasures, rather than demolishing them. Nice shot!

    • I rather liked it, too, Marcy…thank you. And it is nice that concerned people are restoring and re-using these treasures. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another great shot. I always feel bad for blocked up windows and doors – there’s a strong impulse to liberate them!

    • Thank you, Lois…I feel the same…but given that we can see where they used to be, it seems like it would be easy to just press on the perforated lines (like stickers or old-school paper-doll clothes) and push the bricks out/in. That would be one hell of a liberation! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I really like the blocked door. It holds so many stories.

    • I think it might, Erica…from a long, long time ago. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Excellent photo. I love old buildings with a story, even if I don’t know what their story is.

    • Thank you, Allen…I don’t know what the stories are for this one, but given the apparent age of the building, I would imagine that it has a few to tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a find. A bricked up door. I really do like this one.

    • Thank you, George…I thought it was rather interesting, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    If there is a bricked door alone in the wall does anyone see it open ?
    Intriguing subject and a well done composition. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Nice thought, Elmediat…and thank you for the nice words. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. The Lockless Door
    Robert Frost

    It went many years,
    But at last came a knock,
    And I thought of the door
    With no lock to lock.

    I blew out the light,
    I tip-toed the floor,
    And raised both hands
    In prayer to the door.

    But the knock came again
    My window was wide;
    I climbed on the sill
    And descended outside.

    Back over the sill
    I bade a “Come in”
    To whoever the knock
    At the door may have been.

    So at a knock
    I emptied my cage
    To hide in the world
    And alter with age.
