The Blue Door

The Blue Door
I like this little yellow house. You will find it at Kvarnvägen (Mill Road), in Tungelsta. Many years ago a priest lived here. Since then at least two dentists have done the same. When I took a photo here nine years ago the door was brown. Today it stands out a bit more with that blue color.

Ett fint hus som liknar några av husen i gamla delen av Stigtomta. De kåkarna är från förra sekelskiftet och så kanske det är med detta gula hus också. Jag gillar den blå dörren! Just dörrfärg kan stötas och blötas i det oändliga... :-)

Its a real lovely color combination. The more covered in snow. Thanks for showing.

A winter scene with colour... nice.

It is a charming building with that true blue door. . .much better than boring brown.

Luis Gomez said...

Very nice. Great colors.

The blue door with a yellow house is evocative of the Swedish flag.

I really like the color scheme with the snow.

What a great house and the blue door is perfect for it.

I always think of this color combination as being Scandinavian. The owners chose the perfect hues for this house.

I like this little yellow house too, it was made for a blue door!

And how patriotic in the colors of the flag!

This is a beautiful house. The blue door is perfect.

Those colours against the snow are fabulous, Steffe. What a wonderful shade of blue that is.

Stuart said...

Those colors are great against the snow. Nice composition of your photo.

Blue and yellow excellent together, this was a much better choice than brown :)

Såvitt jag vet är huset "nybyggt"
Det gamla brann ned för några år sedan. Men det är en bra kopia av det gamla :-)

Det var värst. Det måste jag ha förträngt. När hände det?

Vågar inte gissa.. Kanske 10 år sen?? Du får väl fråga damen i huset.

Jag har en bild från 2005 och då ser det ut att vara samma hus som idag.

That is so beautiful it would make a lovely picture. Do you ever allow your photos to be sold as I would love to have this one on my wall. Reminds me of where my great grandparents used to live north of Karlstad: he was a priest and their house was larger than this but otherwise very similar.

All of my photos are available via Flickr/Getty images, although the recent changes at flickr has made it hard to figure out the buying process. If you want to buy a copy and hang on a wall at home just make me an offer.

The house was destroyed in a fire back in the 1980s. The new building is an exact replica of the older house. I had to ask around a bit for the facts.

Hi, Thanks for your prompt reply! I have been looking round on the web because I have no idea at all of what to offer for your photograph. I am afraid that I still do not know as prices seem to vary hugely. I am afraid of causing offence by an ignorant offer so would be grateful for some guidance please. I looked on flikr but could not see how to buy there. Thanks.
