I went by the house I grew up in this past spring and took some pictures. I cropped the door out for the opening doors challenge. My parents moved into that house shortly before I was born in 1957 and my mom was there until the end of her life in 1990, and my Dad stayed until near the end of his life in 1998. The door appears to be the same one that was there when my Dad sold the house in 1997 although the greenery he started around the door has become much more established, and the current owners have done a lot of landscaping. The shot above isn't officially part of opening doors challenge since I didn't take the shot, but I couldn't resist throwing it in. That's my brother and I standing in front of the screen door which was there prior to central air conditioning, after central A.C. the glass door took its place on the outside of the wooden door.
While I'm opening doors on memory lane I thought I'd show you some shots I took of one of the doors on the church I went to when I was growing up, and where I also took my daughter to when she was growing up. The shot above is of one of the side doors into Christ Episcopal Church in dowtown Raleigh, NC (U.S.). My Dad was the Rector there for over 35 years so lots of memories behind those doors. I guess you could say the arches above which lead into the courtyard of the Church are sort of the open doors of the church. To your left there is a door into the bell tower.
