The Industrial Doors of South Riverside

On the 1st of February I went on my inaugural walk with the Toronto Photo Walks Group. I met up with about 25 fellow photo walkers at a local coffee shop in Riverside before we began our two hour journey. Walking south and east from Queen Street East and Broadview, in the direction of the lakeshore, we wandered through a mix of residential, small business and light industrial areas.

The most noteworthy doors were in the business and industrial areas – hence the title of this post. The day was overcast, but the various colours of the doors and storefronts were what attracted me the most. I found enough images of doors on this walk to share my experience with Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors group this week.

Toronto Photo Walks is a group on Facebook, where upcoming walks are announced and shared. Members can post images from their walks on the Toronto Photo Walks group in Flickr. Our walk started at a coffee shop and ended at a pub for lunch, so they are a very sociable group as well as a keen photographers.

This film studio has only two delivery doors – you have a 50% chance of correctly guessing what’s behind the door
Habitat for Humanity ReStore – they resell doors at this site, but they are not included in this image
