A Door to Get Into the Festive Spirit

Gone but not forgotten.  The computer failed me after the recent fix last month so it was in the shop again and my technician worked on it for a whole week and finally got it working about 98% correct.  When I got it back I had to figure out how to manage the data storage when my disks had runneth over.  Solution was to buy another external disk but trying to catch up on editing photos, finding and moving files made me feel like a deer caught in headlights and I’m still finding my way through the data jungle.

In the meantime, I’ve missed posting and following posts of doors.  I have a post waiting for me to get caught up but it will have to wait until the holiday hiatus imposed by our Door-Master, Norm Frampton, is over.  But fear not, I have a door from my Russian vacation this year that might get you into a festive mood even if the door was not built for that purpose.

The door photo below was taken while we walked through Red Square’s alleys and stairways to get us to the GUM Building.


The GUM Building is a huge department store.  We first saw it on out night walking tour in Red Square.



This photo was taken during the day when I found the featured door above.


In case you’re wondering what the GUM Building looked like on the inside, this is a shot that I took.


This was a good image to jog the memory from Russia and maybe someday you might see this place on your own.

I’m ending this short door post for this week while I get back to editing photos and trying to piece my data back from different storage disks to its final destination.

Thanks for visiting my post and thanks to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors website.  For more posts and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.

  1. What’s behind that stunning door? A gorgeous grand corridor filled with more doors! 🙂 Great share — glad you’re getting your tech issues sorted out. External hard drives are great once you get acclimated.

  2. Talking about a festive door! Do you know what building style they call this?
    In the Hague there is an old indoor mall with a similar set up, only not as long as this one – but similar building style of the stores, and a “glass” ceiling very much like this one (it was supposed to be a replica of the one in Paris).
    Sorry Gordon, I went through something similar after you guys were here- computer crashed, went over to Apple system, the old data from Windows was saved on an external drive. Then discovered the drive was faulty:( This new one is better, but still haven’t found everything.
    It’s one week before Christmas, so am wishing you a merry one to you and your family:)

  3. That’s a WOW door! Love it!

    I hope you find your way out of photo library hell soon. I still haven’t finished all the cleanup from my computer migration over a month ago. Just not enough hours in the day!!

    Merry Christmas!

    1. Mahalo, Marian! If they are viewing it from space, Putin will complain that the U.S. is spying on him and will evict the US astronauts in the international space station. 😉 I had never heard of the GUM building until one of tour members informed me about during our night walking tour of Red Square. The inside was beautiful lined with shops. Have a Merry Christmas!
