Next week I will continue my looong Farnese doors series, but today I wish to welcome Dan at No Facilities as our new host by posting some of my doors on my first blog that he singled out as his favourites.

I remember clear as day how I felt in my second blogging year upon finding out there existed a photo challenge that asked us to post doors. It felt like finding my tribe.

Dan has been a part of it from the beginning, visiting my doors and commenting on most if not all Thursdays. In his comment he often specifies which door he prefers, and here is a collection of such Thursday Doors from my first blog which ran from 2014 till 2016. I had three more since and this is my fifth. I’ve been posting doors on Thursdays throughout.

Norm Frampton was the host when I joined in May 2015 and remained so until last week. Now Dan has taken over for which I am extremely grateful, as are all of other contributors, I’m sure.

Here is Dan’s first post as the host, and in my gallery are some of my doors that he liked back then and chances are still does. They come from three countries: Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. Some are blue, which I believe is his favourite door colour, some are arched, another favourite feature, and many are wooden which he understands seeing that he has been known to make some of his own doors and other furniture. And one is a special bee door which he said he would share with his daughter who likes bees.

Dan, you’ve been here throughout but now welcome to your new role. To many happy doorful Thursdays!

  1. Thank you so much for this unique welcome to my stewardship of Thursday Doors Manja. The doors you feature have always amazed me. I remember some of these, but I think you’ve probably had 1,000 doors since 2015 (and all winners).

  2. I have followed your doors on and off for a while and You really
    Do find such gems!
    In this post – I live the color of the doors you chose to pose with and then really like the door from the church in San Martino sul Fiora with that man.

      1. I do notice his shirt matched and all the more when our partners get into photos – esp in an artsy way
        And I ha e been pausing my door-scursions lately – will maybe pick it back up in 2021 – I was trying to write some more flash fiction and still am trying
        Anyhow – the door challenge sure does bring the flavors of the world together and Your (Mcubed) doors 🚪 have that tall and originality to them – also glad Dan is keeping this challenge going – hope you have a great weekend

  3. Oh, what a fantastic collection! I love the gate with that parked car, and the door in Montalto di Castro especially….these doors are mostly before I came across you in the blogosphere

  4. Dan has excellent taste! But of course, you are also a superb photographer and every door is like a chocolate temptation. I favor the Santa Susanna door (I did not know there was a Saint named after me) and the Etruscan peek-a-boo and the door near the end with the bright light and the dripping grape vines. We are entering the dreary season here before the snow arrives when everything is gray and black/brown. Your photos are a sunny balm.

    1. Yeah! I’m glad to deliver some balm and chocolate temptation to Santa Susanna. 😀 But you are getting the snoooow! I miss it so, no matter how strange it sounds. Slovenia used to have lots of it, still does but less, whereas in the seven years since I’m here in Tuscany we had it for five hours or so. Thank you and always welcome to have a peek.
