Time for a Trap Door?

Thursday is here, today!  Time for more of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors posts and as I write this next episode I’m wondering if I’ve already posted too many doors from Denmark (don’t worry, the well has not run dry yet and there are more doors from Denmark and the other places that we recently visited).  I guess that is what happens when you make a special point to look for doors while vacationing (no stone is left un-turned or no door is left closed); you bring back a ton of door photos.  So, I’ve decided to give you some door relief at the end of this post to jump through the trap door and take a quick look at other photos of my trip that happens to not be of doors just to clear  your minds for a spell; mind you, this might be breaking some of Norm’s rules of displaying images that do not have hardware or door knobs but the option is yours to jump through the trap door or not.

In this first door photo I shot the Christiansborg Palace entry door.  I set up to take the shot which would have taken me less than a couple of seconds to expose but it ended up taking me at least five minutes.  Just as I was preparing to take the shot two guys and a little girl walked out of the building and decided to stop in the front of the door entrance to have a discussion.  They looked at me with my camera pointed their way (I must have been within 10 yards of them) but they ignored me and continued to have a discourse of how life began in this universe (at least that’s what it appeared to me what they were doing because it was like eons had passed before my eyes).  I even called out and waved my hands for them to kindly move out of my composition to no avail so I waited and waited.  Finally, a clear shot and 2 seconds later I got my shot (a trifecta effect – 3 doors).

The entry door seemed huge in scale to the other doors but it was really dwarfed by the size of the palace.  The second photo is the top portion of the palace and the monument statue in the plaza to demonstrate how large the palace was.

When we departed from the Christiansborg Palace to head back to the apartment we passed a building with this set of back doors (I took a bunch of door photos from this building but I’ll post them another time).  I think it was a church because it had a most unusual spire but I couldn’t translate the Danish plaque so I’ll have to do some research.

The church entrance was guarded by Neptune.

I will end the post here and those willing to jump down the trap door (here’s what I depict a trap door to look like including a selfie of my legs ready to jump into the trap door).

  1. Love the trap door and those door knockers on the church or palace.

    Those photo bombers would have sorely tested my patience. When people do that to me I usually turn my attention and camera to something else. Most the time the attention seekers move on.

    1. Thanks, Deborah! I guess practicing Zen would be helpful. Sometimes I get impatient but when I take my time and wait whether by force or by intuition I get some great results. That still doesn’t stop me from cursing under my breath.
      Will see you on Saturday to patiently wait for the money shot of the stars! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Joann! The odd last photo caught my eye as were headed back to our apartment across from the canal; it seems that these doors were below the sidewalk grade so you had to walk down a few steps to reach the subfloor to open the door and I guess they put these locked wooden doors at sidewalk level either to protect pedestrians from falling into the steps or maybe from throwing debris down the steps.
      Thanks for visiting my Flickr site too!

      1. Oh – that makes so much sense! I had shown the photo to my husband and we were trying to figure out the logic of the trap door. Of course your explanation sounds so obvious now!
