All is not what it seems in Knaresborough…..
I spotted this wonderfully vibrant door when I was heading to the market in the town square.
I did laugh when I got close enough to photograph it:
Some things in Knaresborough are real….
…….like this view from the castle:
…….though I think this view is so perfect and quintessentially English that it looks like I’ve photographed the picture on the box of a jigsaw puzzle.
(all pictures taken on iPhone 8 plus and edited on iPad using Snapseed App)
To see some real doors, head over to Norm’s Thursday Doors.
Thank you for visiting PHOTOPHILE

Incredible pictures Helen, I just love that door :))

Thanks Paul. You’d have laughed if you’d seen how close I was to it before I twigged that it was fake .

Beautifully clever, artistic door, Helen!

Thanks for following my posts.
Maybe it was a relation of Keyhole Kate who lived here!
HMB · 28 October 2017 at 17:31
Yes, maybe she was Flat Stanley’s bidie-in.

I love fake doors, and fake windows as well. Clever stuff, Helen.
HMB · 28 October 2017 at 17:32
Thanks Hugh. Have. A good weekend

Wonderful photos, Helen. That’s the best fake door I’ve seen yet.
HMB · 27 October 2017 at 22:46
Thanks Jean. Yes it had me fooled until I got close-up.

Ooooh – this door is a winner!! … and the bridge is gorgeous. The entire scene looks idyllic.

Fun. And the second picture surely would be perfect on the box of a puzzle.

Great street art. Good find 🙂
HMB · 27 October 2017 at 08:37
Thank you. It certainly made me laugh.
Norm 2.0 · 26 October 2017 at 22:45
Oh I like this one a lot. Someone was being playfully clever when they came up with this idea. Nice find 🙂
HMB · 27 October 2017 at 08:33
Thanks Norm. Have a good weekend.

I like the mail-opening! As kids we used to do this, to see when no one showed up at the door:):) Am surprised at at the window I see a hand, but no eyes or face. Great find!
HMB · 27 October 2017 at 08:34
Thanks Jesh. I’m pleased you like it as much as I do.

I loved it! So Vibrant.
HMB · 27 October 2017 at 08:37
Thank you very much.

I love that fake door! The last real photo looks so perfect it seem unreal!
HMB · 26 October 2017 at 20:40
Yes, that’s what I thought too! Thanks for visiting
Arkenaten · 26 October 2017 at 20:02
Simply gorgeous! Love that door.
And your View from the Castle is beautiful; has an almost painting quality to it.

How fabulous! I love the eyes, peeking out of the letter box!
That last picture. It really is a photograph? It does look like a painting. Come on, now. You’re pulling our legs!
HMB · 26 October 2017 at 19:54
The last one really is a picture taken with my iPhone when we were at the Castle. It would make a good jigsaw though don’t you think? Thanks for visiting. Where in the world are you right now? Are you home for winter?
Leah · 26 October 2017 at 20:02
That picture would be stunning as a puzzle. It could be used in a tourist brochure, on a postcard, or in a calendar!
We are home in Manitoba with our first snow day of 2017. This turn in the weather officially has me looking forward to our coming travels. We’ll start off with a road trip to British Columbia!
HMB · 26 October 2017 at 22:05
Snow already! Have a good winter.
