Cheap Junk

Not all doors are pretty; many are just utilitarian and you would probably just walk past it without looking back.  Such is the case this week and it’s a tale of not what’s behind it but what is outside of it.

A friend and I drove to Geyserville last Saturday, a town north of Napa Valley but still with many backyard vineyards, with the objective of finding and photographing a pair of nesting Ospreys.  We were successful in fulfilling our photography objective and we cruised the back roads on the way back home.  Dan, my friend, hit the brakes and pulled a U Turn to check out an interesting spot in the small town of Calistoga.

There was a building on the lot that advertised Antiques but the sign over the door said Cheap Junk.  It wasn’t something behind the door that we found interesting; it was outside on a huge lot.  The door on the building was not an antique door but this is a place than Dan Antion would love.


The first thing that catches your eye is the wall of old rusted shells of classic cars and trucks for anyone restoring a classic car.

Then you find that classic Ford Edsel shell with headlights and have to take that photo.  How cool was that?


Well, there certainly were other rusted machinery and tractors around but you can imagine that without me uploading more photos; besides, the kids were getting restless.


Oh, as I mentioned, we did get photos of the Ospreys and their two chicks.  This shot was probably of the female collecting more branches for her hardwood nest floor (she probably didn’t get the word that there are Cheap Junks over here).


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.
