Thursday Doors – August 13, 2020

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). 

Ruelles Vertes in Rosemont/Petite-Patrie, Montréal (Part #5)

Before I get started just a reminder that this is the last Thursday Doors post until Thursday September 10th. I’m taking a much-needed 3-week blogging break. This means there will be no Thursday Doors on August 20th, 27th, and September 3rd. During that time feel free to continue with your own posts if you wish but there will be no link-up post here, and in case you were wondering, no there’ll be no guest-host in my absence.

This week wraps up my recent explorations in my old neighbourhood in the city. Most of these are from the Green Lane-Ways but a few are from adjoining streets and were too nice to save for another time.

This one for example with the nice decorative glass.

Or this one for its cheerful colour, though I’m not sure I agree with the decision to have the address numbers match the door colour.

I forgot how tight the space is in these back alley parking garages. Even with today’s compact cars a passenger would have to get out before the driver pulls in more to one side in order to leave enough space be able to open their own door to step out.

I’d say this one hasn’t seen much action this summer.

Seeing one of these always makes me smile.

Camera surveillance? Of what exactly?

Nothing particularly noteworthy about this one…

Except for the clever idea for a doorbell 😀

More fun colours here.

Rustic beauty in the heart of the city.

As always: thanks for looking and enjoy the break. I know I will 🙂

  3. Well, I’m glad I remembered to get something up tonight or I would have really missed the train; wishing you a nice 3 week break, Norm and I hope you can get away from the sheltered in place to relax. I still envy your find on the Ruelles Verte.

    I’m doing a short post from where I left off in Fes, Morocco. Here’s my link:

  5. I like that lemon-yellow door. Very brave.

    I have a well-decorated doorway this week: https://anotherglobaleater.wordpress.com/2020/08/13/walking-through-a-small-village/

  6. I love this eclectic neighborhood. The horn is a hoot, and the surveillance sign made me laugh because there is a dilapidated house down the road with a very similar sign. The little library is handsome but the narrow garage, well, it reminds me of ours as far as driving in so that didn’t make me smile. 🙂 Have a great vacation, Norm.

    Can we blame the lack of attention to the grass and weeds on the heat? Oh well. Have a great blogging break Norm.

    First of all, have a great deserved break and see you in a few weeks time. Loving all your shots, especially the yellow door and that innovative doorbell of a bike honk. Haha Here is mine https://mywanderings.travel.blog/2020/08/14/notting-hill/

  11. Here is my counter door post, meaning that it’s more symbolic than doorful this time around. The name of the valley means “door”, you see.

  12. Hi Norm, Nice collection of neighborhood doors. The vibrant yellow door is a real eye-catcher. I thought about you when I came across a lending library “bird house” in San Juan Bautista this week. Here’s my post:

    Some great doors as ever, Norm. I loved the hint of rustic charm and the bright yellow door, and the door bell is a winner – I might try that myself!

  16. A lovely send-off to your break. Until five minutes ago I thought that today was Wednesday. So much about my presence of mind. It’s been around 40 since I returned and my brain has gone into the lizard mode. I’ll see what I can do… Happy and relaxing three weeks to you!

  20. A beautiful assortment to end this month, Norm.

    I love the yellow door. Inviting and energizing. And the repurposed doorbell, like a wink on the doorstep.

    Have a much deserved break. Have fun, stay safe.
    See you in September.

  24. I see I got back just in time to have to wait. 🙂 That’s OK. I enjoyed my break and I’m sure you’ll enjoy yours. I love the yellow door and of course the little library. But you have lots of other good ones as well per usual. Here are mine and “see you in September.”

      I’m sure I’ll enjoy the break too. I’m finding that for some reason Thursdays are creeping up on me quicker and quicker this summer. And with all that’s going on right now in the world I need a change. A little rest and time to focus on other things will do me some good.
      Cheers and see you in September!

    Vegetation seems poised to take full advantage of any door that is not opened. I loved the decorative glass in the first. Narrow windows such as the one to the left of the picture are always a puzzle. They seem more there for atmosphere than to admit light. My submission is here:

    Great doors to finish off this visit, Norm. I love that doorbell. I do agree with you about those house numbers, you really need this to be visible.

    I’m going to join you on the break. I finished my tour of the Suffield Historic District with one last building – https://nofacilities.com/2020/08/13/mapleton-hall-thursdaydoors/

    Thank you so much for hosting this series. Enjoy the break, stay well.
