Newfoundland Interesting Doors and Doorways
I’ve always been attracted to doors and windows, and have wondered what’s behind them. When I have the opportunity, I like to photograph them open, so I can discover a little of their secrets…
I had a post on doors in St. John’s Newfoundland Canada, but those were city doors.
While visiting the coast of Newfoundland, I was attracted by fisherman’s barns and shacks, along with the fishing tools and the surrounding environment. I also found some interesting open doors. Click on the pictures to see more from the original galleries.
This is an open door of a traditional wooden fishing shack in Northeast side of Newfoundland, Canada. You can see from outside in and from inside out – so, no “unknowns” here 😉
I liked the fact that I could even see the water in the back and the anchored fishing boat.
Another open door was that of a fisherman shack in Triton Harbor, Newfoundland. This goes only one way: from inside out… You can however, also see the water, the pier and even some islands on the horizon.
Before entering the Gros Morne National Park, we spent two nights in a beautiful B&B old traditional house. The big terrace at the first floor was overlooking the ocean – lucky us 🙂
I liked the handmade rag carpet on wooden floor and the morning light coming through…
In the same house downstairs, another interesting door with a glass window was begging to be photographed… 🙂
When visiting the Gross Morne National Park, I mainly took photos of landscapes, nature and boats. But I couldn’t miss this semi-open door of a red barn in Trout River village:
Fogo Island has many interesting fisherman houses, barns and shacks. One day I noticed this kid running through an opening that once was a door… Whatever his reason for running was, I will never know, but I took the shot.
Twillingate is another interesting fisherman village in the Northeast part of Newfoundland. It is said to be the place where you can best see the icebergs. We didn’t see them, but we did see some nice barns, shacks and lots of crab traps. I’ve seen and photographed a lot of those in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
