71: Doors and windows

(Bench and window in Old Town San Diego.)

It’s still snowing here in the Bogs.  Mostly light flurries with the occasional snow squall.  So far we don’t have much in the way of accumulation.  The ground was probably too warm at the start.

(Through one door and out the other.)

My outdoor time today was pretty uneventful.  It was mostly about moving from one place to another and trying to stay warm.

I could ramble on about the cold and the snow but in deference to my visitors who have had enough of winter, cold, and snow, I decided to post some more sunny California photos.

(Pitcher window.)

These are all from my brief visit to Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.  To be honest, even though I like the snow (so far), I’m enjoying looking at all the sunshine in some of the photos.  It’s very warming.

(Red doors.)

(Yellow doors.)

Not too long ago I posted about my passion for doors, windows, gates, and other portals when it comes to photography.  You can find it here if you missed it (or want to read it again).

(Green door.)

Someday I may gather them all together — all these photos of doors, windows, gates, and other portals — and put them in a book or something.  I’d like to do something with them.  I’m just not sure what.

(Framed with succulents.)

I can’t completely ignore my outdoor time, though, since part of what I’m blogging about on a daily basis is spending time with Mother Nature.  If you’ve had enough of cold, snow, and gray weather, leave now.  I’m about to post a snowy photo or two.

(Today’s view of the pond.)

It’s in the 20’s today.  The cloud cover is thick and mostly of the dark gray variety.  As I mentioned earlier, we’ve had flurries with the occasional squall and not much accumulation.  The sun came out for about 5 minutes this morning while it was snowing.  I would have taken a picture but I was out and about, running errands.

(The creek overfloweth.)

One of my errands involved picking up some things I’ll need for something that is happening next week.  It’s something important that I should have done two years ago when I turned 50.  Better late than never, as they say.  I didn’t purposely put it off (even though it isn’t something I really want to do).  It just happened that way, what with all that was going on in my life at the time.

(Christmas light on the front porch.)

Those of you of a certain age might have a fairly good guess as to what I’m not naming just yet.  I’ll tell you all about it (well, maybe not all about it) soon.

    I agree, it’s nice to look at warm climate photos when you’re experiencing the cold and the snow.

    Robin, your weather looks like the kind of weather we’re getting here in southern Ontario.

      I know some parts of southern Ontario get similar weather to ours, Marianne. At least it seems that way when I compare weather notes with another blogging friend who lives near Toronto.

    Love, love, love all the windows and doors. Great colors in a lot of the old ones.

    Uh-oh, picking IT up. Please…don’t tell ALL about it. 🙂

    Those windows with the old lead panes are fabulous!

    These are wonderful captures of doors and windows. I always enjoy photos of doors and windows… just something about them. 🙂
