As a special end-of-year treat, this week Norm suggests we recycle a previous post. So here’s a door I used last year for a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge on the theme of Endurance. You can see why.
The hamlet of Bonnefont is just a few miles from here, but with about 30 houses its a sprawling metropolis compared to here at Tranquility Base, which can muster ten permanently occupied and half a dozen holiday homes.

This is the door of the barn that belongs to my neighbour Bernard; it’s about 100 feet from my own front door.
Earlier this year, Bernard replaced the roof of this barn, which was in a very poor condition. As a result we were, for a couple of weeks, inundated by displaced barn spiders about the size of your fist.
Be that as it may, he left the door in its original state. I quite like the sapling growing in front of it, which adds some contrast.

Doors? You want doors? Well, how’s this for a door?
I freely admit that it is quite fortuitous that the shape of this huge doorway is reflected in the arch visible inside – not to mention the sign outside.
This massive set of doors is in a medieval church that’s been converted to an organic food market at Sarlat, in the Dordogne.

There’s more than one way to look at a door, as this image illustrates. This is one of the massive doors of Chartres Cathedral – as seen by a mouse, perhaps.
As a free gift, here’s another door from Chartres, which I used in a recent post on Vertical Lines for Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge.

My first contribution to the Thursday Doors challenge hosted by Norm 2.0.
This matching door and shutters can be found in the hamlet of Navaleuil, about two kilometres from home here at Tranquility Base. Compared to the smaller doors on the left, it also shows what a difference a lick of paint can make.
