Photo Phriday: The Front Door

If, as the saying goes, that your eyes are the windows to your soul then what does that make your front door. This week for my Photo Phriday I have taken various photos of peoples front doors, which weirdly consisted of me driving around neighbourhoods for hours shooting photos of people’s homes from my car. I am sure there were curious observers who thought terrible things about me maybe even some that wondered WHY I was taking photos of the house. Was I part of a band of robbers casing out possible hit, or was I a neurotic exterior decorator who instead of having talent went around and took photos of other homes so I could copy it exactly for my clients. Ok so maybe the thoughts of the neighbours were not that in depth but seriously I felt a little secret agent-ish.

Anyways back to the doors I found some curious things while I did a little research that I would like to share with you. There is for instance a whole philosophy, which I am not really sure that I buy, that says an entryway can be a reflection of the personal style within. And then I found the Front Door Test on blog things and of course I took the test. My results were surprisingly correct. My front door is white and my results were

You have simple tastes.
You like the classic basics, especially when they’re done well.
Lots of space in your life is very important.
You don’t like physical or mental clutter.


Wow that was pretty much dead on right. But of course that was not the end of it because I am crazy like that and because the questions TECHNICALLY asks what color would you WANT to paint the door of your new cute little home, I did the quiz again and picked red. Which would probably be the color I would paint my door if I was not so lazy and if my neighbour had not crawled into my brain and took my blue house red door with white trim color scheme, she painted her house six months ago and I think I cried for a month. The answer on the quiz was surprisingly correct AGAIN but for the crazy half of me.

You are bold, brave and easily excited.
You are passionate about what you believe.
And you’re never afraid to tell people exactly what you think.
You’re picky and particular. It is sometimes hard to meet your standards.


So seriously maybe I should have a half red door and a half white one, I am a Libra after all and my life is all about balancing out my sane self with my oh so crazy self. This Photo Phriday has given me a lot of food for thought.

Hope you enjoy the pretty pictures and they inspire you to look at your front door in a new light.

THIS TECHNICALLY PROBABLY IS NOT SOMEONE'S FRONT DOOR BUT IT "IS" A DOOR AND I DID LOVE THE GRITTYNESS OF IT

I like the first one and the wooden one with the circles in the glass - very cool.
