Borough Market

We grabbed a coffee here – from the cutest little coffee venue ever. Just a couple of weeks ago. 

Here in Borough Market in London. 



The coffee was fantastic!  And the vibe here was electric!  The sights. The smells. The flavours!  We stayed for lunch, which we picked up from a Somalian vendor … and it was delicious!  


There were so many people.

Afterwards, we walked across London Bridge. 

The news of yesterday’s attacks has me retracing our steps in my mind. 

Heartbreaking. 

And Senseless.

MET Doors

New York City has soooo many sights to visit. And there are just sooooo many things to do here. But, I guess I’m a creature of habit. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favourite places to visit when I’m in NYC. 


The MET is the largest museum in the United States and one of the most visited in the world. I’ve been here several times but have not seen the same exhibits twice. 


Here are a few of the doors I walked through in this most magnificent building on my most recent visit. 


Going up ….


And down.








This column is just a portion of one from the Temple of Artimis and is part of the Greek and Roman Sculpture Exhibition. 

This exhibition was a fine prelude to the special installation which is on the rooftop. But more about that in a future post.   For now we are looking at doors … and doorways.

London Doors

We walked ALOT during our recent visit to London. Sooooo much to see. And so little time. But i would argue that the very best way to really see a city is from the street. 

And I couldn’t help but collect a few photos of Doors along the way….. 


The gates to Kensington Palace.


The Household Cavalry Door. 


A pub door. 



Doors at Shakesphere’s Globe Theatre


The Door to Spencer House


Near St. James Park. 


A Fleet Street Door – and friendly doorman. 


And, of course, the doors to Canada House … with Nelson’s Column reflected in the window.

Doors of Portobello Road 

Exploring Notting Hill, just over a week ago, we were treated to some gorgeous doorways along this famous, vibrant road.  Let’s take a walk ….



Each of the entrances to these terraced houses have such a lot of individuality and personality.  





And, at No 22, the the former home of George Orwell. 

That’s enough walking.  Time for a cup of tea …. or maybe a gin & tonic.

The Doors of Mowsley

A stop in South Leicestershire village of Mowsley and Sunday Lunch in the local. 



This 500 year old village has a population of just over 300.  It boasts a terrific pub …. The Staff of Life, where we found a wood fire in the fire place, an older gentleman in a chair by the fire and a handful of fellas leaning on the bar with their pints … and some very fine food. 


And in Mowsley, of course, there are lots of very pretty Doors …
