Thursday Doors

A couple of interesting doors from Greenwich, SE London. The Cigar Warehouse no longer produces cigars. It is an estate agency (realtor is the American term). Next to it there is an NHS health centre and on the pavement (sidewalk) there is a bright red pillar box (mailbox). The second photo shows a house in Circus Street, with an “eau de Nil” coloured door, with decorative wreath.

This will be my last Thursday Door posting. As soon as my visa application has been approved, I will be leaving UK for Bangladesh. Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders is pulling out all the stops to provide care for the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people who have fled from Myanmar. They are living on the borderline in a desperate state, fortunate to have a sheet of plastic tarpaulin and four posts, never mind a door.

Thursday Doors – Saint Paul de Vence

SPdV is a beautiful hilltop village in the foothills north of the French Riviera. It’s not just my opinion – lots of actors, writers, painters and celebrities have lived here. And died here – James Baldwin (American writer) and Donald Pleasance (British actor). If you visit, try to avoid the throng of tourists who arrive in luxury coaches in late morning and phagocytose the fashionable restaurants for lunch.

The streets are narrow and lined with art galleries and gift shops. But forget these, and concentrate on the doors. This is statuette is above the main gate to the village.P1300601
