Thursday Doors – August 27, 2015

Another church this week, but this time for a totally different reason.

When we drove past this one, St-Jean L’Évangéliste in Thurso Québec, I found the choice of colors for a church door so unusual that I had to circle back and take a few shots.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but I find this blue really doesn’t offset well against the beautiful old stone walls.

I guess they can’t all be pretty:

      Actually I think you missed the Saturday deadline by a few days 😉
      I have no objection leaving the link here if you want, but I think you’ll get more traffic if you allow me to delete it here, and you can try linking it up with the others for this week starting tomorrow.

    At Christmas, the Mother Mary wears a blue gown and some angels have blue in their paintings.
    The turquoise doesn’t bother me and I kind of like it, but French Provincial may go over “big” in Quebec!

    I agree with all above. It was probably painted this color when “teal” was all the rage and even cars came out in this color. At least it isn’t yellow, like the new Ferraris.

  5. Great post Norm – I love the turquoise colour but perhaps on a beach ball or a beach hut rather than on this church! The angels are totally funky aren’t they?!! 🙂

    I personally like the choice of color, but it definitely has a modern feel that may not mesh well with a church.

    I like your doors for this week. Perhaps the light blue is a deliberate invitation to curious folks to check out the church further, as a sign of welcome/hospitality. At any rate here’s my entry:

  23. To me it’s a modern colour against an building that is meant to look older, so maybe not a great match. However, I love the Angels standing either side of the door. Dare I say they say “Christmas” to me. I know it’s not even September yet!

    Great selection of doors. At first the blue grabbed me, but on closer inspection, you are correct – thus hue of blue doesn’t have the gravitas to correlate to such a solid stone structure. A blue would work well if it was a darker, perhaps grayer, tone. I give the person who picked the blue the benefit of the doubt – color blind, maybe?

  28. Norm, this is really interesting. It wouldn’t be my choice of color either but the last photo kind of pulls it all together. Good find. 🙂

    The color is a little muted but the doors are beautiful. I love stone buildings and this one is very interesting Norm.

    Well , the blue got your attention. It stands out . That aqua blue is more common , I think , on Florida or California beach houses , so it makes a good contrast here , a Quebec church . maybe you’re a traditionalist at heart .

      Dan I think you hit the nail on the head. I must be more of a traditionalist than I thought and really, these colors would work much better in a warm sunny climate.
