Beautiful Doors

RM Global

A couple of weeks ago I got a notification that someone wanted to connect with me on LinkedIn, and it turned out to be an architect that I worked with on several projects many moons ago, Reese Schroeder.  When I checked out his profile I found that he is the co-founder and Director of Product Development for RM Global.  The company creates and manufactures absolutely gorgeous art glass, including glass doors.  Their secret process results in a resolution of 4,000 dpi at 36 billion color potential - far exceeding the range of the human eye.

Happy 4th!

I'm really starting to think that between photos from readers and the way the internet connects me to the world, I could just stay in my house and still have plenty of doors to write about.  I'm currently at our "camp" which depending on where you are in the country could be defined as a cottage, lake house, summer home, etc.  I usually call it our shack in the woods, because it's tiny, it needs work, and it's in the woods.  Anyway, you get the picture.

Portland Preview

I spent the weekend in Portland, Maine, and I think I may be in love.  What a beautiful city!  I was there for my sister-in-law's baby shower and I think I made my brother and SIL a little nervous driving and door-hunting at the same time.  It was kind of a rainy weekend so I'll do a more extensive post when I become an aunt in a couple of months, but here's a preview of some of the gorgeous doors around town.  It's sad that the doors being installed today are so plain and generic.  The door bloggers of the future won't have any cool photos to post!

Doors of the Hurva

It has been a while since I've received a new batch of photos from Israel but these were worth the wait.  The Hurva is a reconstructed synagogue in the Old City of Jerusalem, with a long, storied history.  Construction on the original synagogue began in the early 1700's, but the unfinished building was destroyed in 1721.   It was rebuilt in 1864 and destroyed again in 1948.  The most recent reconstruction began in 2005, and the reconstructed synagogue was officially opened on March 15, 2010.

Tomb Doors

Last week I attended a security meeting for a new horticulture building at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  I've written hardware specs for hundreds of projects but never a building for a cemetery.  I had never been to Mt. Auburn, so I looked it up on Google Maps, my first clue that this was not your typical cemetery.

Caño Negro

Yesterday we went to Caño Negro, a wildlife refuge near the Nicaraguan border.  I saw no doors of note, but I did see a mother sloth with her baby, which was SO COOL!! We saw tons of other animals including iguanas and other lizards, caymans, white-faced and howler monkeys, at least 20 different kinds of birds, and 3 other sloths.  It was a really great day.

Urban Exploration

I think I may have found the perfect hobby for myself.  Not that I need anything else to keep me busy, but I recently discovered the art of Urban Exploration, which combines my love of photography, architecture, and adventure. According to Wikipedia, Urban Exploration (AKA urbex or UE) is "the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities."
