Doors. Dead, Closed and Gone.

Norm 2.0! I haven’t forgotten you. I have dearly missed your door challenges. Fret not dear blogging friend, I have taken door pictures on nearly all of my travels from here to there and back to somewhere in between.

This long-last door post is brought to you from Rochester, New York. I was there for work and found a good couple of hours of free time. And to top it off, my free time wound up being on a cool overcast, gloomy day. Why was gloomy perfect? Well, because I was on a mission to visit a well-known cemetery, the Mt. Hope Cemetery.

Years ago, I would have never thought of walking around a cemetery for fun. But some of them are so filled with stunning stonework, it is hard not to appreciate them.

I have a ton of photos from this trip. However, let’s start off with just a taste so I can manage to make a post.

In honor of Norm 2.0’s Thursday Door Challenge, here is the door of a large building on the cemetery grounds.


Technically, it’s the door framing that attracted my attention. I am a sucker for grand stonework, and this Victorian style cemetery was full of it.

Even though the door was a temporary construction filler, it worked well with the fell of the place: cold and a bit creepy.

As for the rest of the building, here are some views of the rest of it.

    1. You were right Norm. Your comment was lurking in my spam box. Sorry! Yes, I am happy to be back to blogging and your challenge. Just to be safe, I have already started my post for next Thursday in case I get busy with work. (It should be a busy day…but anticipate more possible doors in the week.) I have so many pictures, it may take a bit to go through them. But, that’s half the fun.


    1. I’ve been missing the door fun and friends! Between having surgery in December and starting a new job in January, I’ve been struggling to find a new routine. I think I am starting to find a groove now so, hopefully, I will get back into some blogging. I definitely have a pile of photos to collected up from my travels though.

        1. Oh gosh, good point. I just kind of disappeared. I stopped my editing of Army manuals job to become the public affairs officer for the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit ( I get to run around and take pictures and videos, write stories, manage social media pages, and travel to competitions with the teams at times. It is the nicest bunch of people, freedom to be creative and the stability of a government job. (Well, as stable as life gets these days anyhow.) It really could not be more perfect. I just need more time in the day to do all the things I want to do.
