It’s time for Thursday Doors and the hounds are at the gate!
Ok, maybe there was just a blogger at the gate, but it doesn’t have quite the same punch, even if I did have a camera.
Once I got past the stripper club with its lap dances, my journey into the Garden District earlier this week resulted in the discovery of some lovely homes, great doors, and interesting gates.

One of the purposes of my visit downtown was to see the “Bernard Hughes” house built in 1873. It too had a lovely gate to keep the riffraff like me from venturing onto the property… although since the gate was left ajar, it was practically an invitation to go inside.
I resisted the temptation – barely.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find any information on the property – like, who exactly was Bernard Hughes? – but I did find an earlier photo of the property before its major facelift.
The house I found had lost its Morticia Addams vibe and even the original iron fence had been replaced.
… but thankfully its lovely front door was saved. I had to check to make sure there was no one peering at me from behind the curtains, and I love the hint of another interior archway that can be seen through the transom window.
This has been Thursday Doors, a weekly photo challenge hosted by the Door Master, Norm Frampton at Norm 2.0.
