Ran out of fresh doors this week so I “traveled” back to my archives and found this! It was 2012 and we visited Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands; the door photo was taken in Norway, more specifically, Bergen. Bergen was a quaint, beautiful community where the bus from the airport drops you off in the town center (a park) and you can ask any local where your address is located and they probably can point you in the right direction.
We had a great time there, the weather was unusually sunny (according to the locals) and the midnight sun set sometime after 11:00 p.m. for a few hours. Lots to eat, see and experience so if you plan on visiting Norway, try to see Bergen.
This door photo below was taken near the famous Fish Market where you can get fresh seafood or other food, a drink at the many outdoor cafe’s and sometimes entertained by street artist musicians.
When I took this shot, I recalled thinking how cool the old wooden door storefront looked but I always wondered about the large gaps from the decayed wood at the bottom. Well, 4 years later when I reviewed this photo in detail for the Thursday Doors post I looked closely and noticed the straight edges outside the old door’s frame; and “oh snap”! The old door and frame storefront was mounted on a door behind the old doors (look closely and you can see the straight edges and the black door handles show where the two door edges open, the old wooden bolts below are deceptive because it is cut where the door edge ends and does not really bolt both doors together). Unfortunately, I did not enter this shop to see what was behind these doors; if I did I would not have been surprised by this cool looking door.
