Who doesn’t enjoy a magician using sleight-of-hand tricks to draw your attention away from the obvious? That’s the best line I could come up with for the intro into my Thursday Doors submission this week; my doors should depict what I am saying.
It has been almost a year since my last trip home to Hawaii and I am preparing to return to visit my mother and celebrate her 92nd birthday. When I returned from my visit last year I shared some doors that I found when I did a doorscursion and I still have some doors saved for a rainy day; now is a good time to dust off some of those saved doors for this post.
The Cafe Duck Butt! I’m dying to check this place out (just googled this place and it’s a Korean Pub and Karaoke lounge) so maybe not. The wall muralist(s) certainly caught my attention before I saw the entrance door and the sign did a sleight-of-hand trick, too! Columns adorn the entry door of this former industrial building but the mural keeps drawing your attention away from the door.
This is the entry door if you can keep your eyes from looking at the mural to the right.
And just when you think you got a look at the door, here’s another perspective.
Now that the magician has your attention…
Did you see a door in the side of the building, above? Well, if you don’t see it your eyes are not deceiving you; there is no door.
The next sleight-of-hand is this building’s mural. If you look closely there is a door between the two bicycles; oh, and the pickup truck has a door, too!
The door in this building’s mural must be disguising itself as a bird house; at least that’s what the artist seems to be suggesting.
And finally. there are two doors here. The graffiti almost does a great sleight-of-hand getting you to focus on the images rather than the door but getting you back into focus, the second door is the mail box.
If you found your way to this Thursday Doors post, it means you got past the slight-of-hand tricks by master door magician, Norm Frampton. He is known to mesmerize door aficionados with his fantastic door images and interesting facts about them and if you’re not paying attention you could miss his blue frog doorbell that would transport you to the door portal of other door bloggers. So go ahead and press the blue frog button and enjoy the posts of other door bloggers and post a door blog of your own, if you would like to show your sleight-of-hand trick.
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.
