A while back I did a series of multiple posts I called Gold Country Drives
which took us to various spots in Northern California’s beautiful Gold Country. (Check it out again if you are so inclined.) For our birthdays every year my photography friend Diana and I always get together and go somewhere to take photos (and usually eat some yummy food). Typically we go to Napa or the Bay area or the Coast or somewhere with lots of flowers to enjoy a beautiful day together. This year, with COVID, everything is frankly just weird. So, we decided to do a social distancing photo shoot in the Plymouth/Amador County area. Our first stop was downtown Plymouth where a few interesting doors presented themselves. It was mandatory I post them for Norm 2.0’s weekly post since I haven’t been out much in months. I went back and forth on if these photos should be black and white or not. I landed on color because the red and the blue/green and yellow is just too interesting.
Enjoy friends. More flowers and wineries to follow from this day of fresh air and space. Happy Thursday Doors.
Be well everyone.
The wide open walls mural festival did a spooky number on this building. I couldn’t help but submit for Norm 2.0’s Thursday doors. U for unusual.

Happy Thursday everyone. Meet the doors of Old Town Auburn, California. Auburn is another great city which has its roots in the Gold Rush. It has changed a lot over the years and is growing regularly. It is known for its vibrant Old Town, its mandarins, and its wine believe it or not. I took some inspiration from Norm 2.0 and snapped some colorful photos of its doors for you.
Auburn has Chinese history with agricultural and gold mining workers from the 1800’s.
Nothing like a firehouse door…
This door maybe needs a little work but I like the older style
Makes you wonder what’s on the other side, huh?

I never grow tired of patina like this
Let’s hope no one ever takes this door down

The California Gold Country boasts lots of beautiful shop-filled main streets in various states of revitalization or disrepair. But, one thing is for sure…no one wants to throw out a great old door or window with some personality. Join me and get a feel for what its like to walk by the Gold Country main streets of the 1850s. Do you have anything like this where you live?

Please don’t ever paint over this.

It’s a door!
