Thursday Doors: Gargoyle Greeting!

The lovely Norm from Norm 2.0 has a fun weekly feature called, “Thursday Doors”.  He invites fellow bloggers to share interesting and unique doors that we happen to stumble upon.

This week I have a rather interesting door to share.  This door is located on the front of a church here in Chicago.  What is interesting to me is the ornate and fascinating architecture around the door.  There is something about gargoyles that I just love!

However, sadly the beautiful decor surrounds rather plain, modern doors.  It was disappointing to see this juxtaposition; nonetheless, the features surrounding the doors are striking.

    Wow I agree Cher, the newer doors do no service to the original architecture. The old architecture has such class, style and flare.

      Hi John! Yes, it really does. We’d expect to see grand doors for such an incredible architectural accompaniment I’d say! Thanks, John! Cher xo

    This is gorgeous! There’s something so intriguing about beautiful doors I think it’s the wonder of what’s behind! xo

      Me too, Holly! I often think about that and also with lighted windows in old buildings at night. When I see photos of lanterns in windows or opaque glass with an iridescent lighting I always wonder the same thing! (I think of castles, and fairy tales – silly me!) Thank you, Holly! Cher xo

    That’s very intricate & the Gargoyles are enchanting! I find them a bit on the scary side. Ancient Guards, protector of all good things. That’s for sharing!

    You are so right – the contrast is there and that modern set of doors likely meets codes and all – but wow – you can see the misfit vibe- and what a grand church

      Why thank you so much! Yes, it is practical (which is totally understandable) but the contrast is so glaring! Cher xo
