Thursday Doors in snow 3

This is my last batch of door pictures from Stoneygate in the snow. But the weather forecast says that more white stuff is on the way over the weekend.

Very trusting? Very welcoming? The red door porch is open, and the blue door is ajar. Maybe someone popped next door for a cup of sugar?
Stone and brick, classic black door set off by the silver wreath.
More half-timbered, faux Tudor mansions with an elaborate portico (needs attention)
Front yard with a skip.
Very elegant portico for number 47
Mirror image doors, dark and light grey. Milk still gets delivered in glass bottles to the doorstep each morning here.
Another pair of doors. Black and grey are popular colours. Interesting fanlight.
Stained glass along the top row, then frosted glass (appropriate for the weather). All set in a substantial black door with brass letter box
Another porch with an open door. Not very energy efficient.
Last snowy door photograph. Carriage lights at the site, brick surround.

Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors in snow

Leicester is in the heart of England. We get snow most years, but usually it is a light dusting that often melts away after 24 hours. This week, 15 centimetres (six inches) of white stuff floated down overnight. In the morning, the sky was clear and blue. The sun lit up the scene magically.

Too treacherous for cycling today. With covid restrictions, traffic was light.
I managed to get half the garage doors in the shot, but it wasn’t possible to photograph the side door of the storage space above. There is another door in the bottom right hand side of the photograph, which crept into the picture unbeknown to me
A fine set of iron gates guard the driveway of this brick house.
I wanted to get a bit closer to this house but my footprints in the snow would have betrayed my trespassing. I like the stained glass window above the door.
Grey bin for normal rubbish, green for garden waste. I was drawn to the stone surround of the door and the carriage lamps.
The Baptist Church on London Road looks rather austere.
This is an old Victorian villa which has been transformed into a hotel. Not much business around in the time of covid. Very impressive glass porticos.
Across the road is a billboard advertising South Lodge Care Home. The image is improved by the snow.

I walked the streets with my camera, trying not to appear like a burglar, casing the joint. I have enough pictures to show you for the next two weeks.
