Each week bloggers from around the world share photos of doors. Old doors, new doors, short doors and tall doors.
I love this challenge and think of it often. Sadly many Thursdays fly by before I realize I missed yet another week. I actually downloaded my photos for this week’s challenge several days ago….and still I almost missed it! Fortunately Norm 2.0 gives us until Saturday at noon (Eastern Time) to get our doors posted and shared.
I tend to gravitate toward old doors, worn doors and even doors with no way of reaching them…like the two I am sharing today…second floor doors, without stairs.
Both photos taken in Snyder Texas. Hopefully both buildings are being refurbished and not just torn down.
If you would like to join the fun or just want to see a bunch of door photos stop by Norm 2.0 for a visit.
Usually my family patiently treks around with me as search for photo opportunities. They sit in the car listening to music, looking at their phones, waiting for me to walk across the field, cross the road or work my way inside an abandon building.
This recent trip was a little different. Some extended family made the trip to West Texas with us. As the entire group went to breakfast, someone had to wait in the car with the dog. It is way too hot in Texas to let your dog stay in the car if the air conditioner is not running. I volunteered to hang with the dog. Tina suggested I drive around and take pictures – she knew I had been eyeing a few places. I quickly jumped at the idea.
I drove back out State Route 84 to a dilapidated shack. I had noticed the shack on our way into town.
As I drove to the shack I noticed this house that appears to still be occupied and out by a rundown barn stood a windmill…honestly the windmill caught my eye…I love windmills.
I am finding myself drawn to the old-style water towers. I am considering a photo collection of them. Here is the Snyder Texas Water Tower…found during my photo drive.
I hope you enjoyed this small tour of Snyder Texas...I sure enjoyed taking the photos.
The letters C or D…this is what Cee wants pictures of this week.
C = Cowboy
Awhile back we were visiting family in Snyder Texas. I found this cool piece of metal art at the local college. It actually represents their mascot – The Westerners. However, I’ve chosen to call him a cowboy…for this challenge!
If you enjoy black and white photography I would encourage you to visit Cee’s page.
I seem to be drawn to abandon buildings, broken windows and any roof with a hole. I also like a door with a lot of history. When I saw this building and this door, in Snyder, Texas I had to stop and take a few photos.
