More of MontrΓ©al’s Ruelles Vertes #10

These are some of the most colourful discoveries I’ve made while exploring the Ruelles Vertes in Montreal’s Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood.

Lots to see though, so put on your comfy walking shoes and follow me:

If you say so.

It does have a door.

I sure hope so!

The door and

The rest of the mural.

An upside-down horseshoe is supposed to be bad luck, no?

Yes, this is a door.


As always I thank you for looking πŸ™‚

  1. Love the colourful graffiti, Norm, but the one that really got to me was “Its Ok”. Simple and just the right calm for our turbulent times. Don’t have a door offering this week, but perhaps next.

      Thanks Debi. My first instinct told me not to believe the “It’s ok” but you’re right, it’s a simple, calm message for turbulent times, and thankfully it’s a message that has been growing on me of late πŸ™‚

  3. I think you’re right about the horseshoe, Norm. If it hangs that way, the magic leaks out. Also…there’s a squirrel in that shot!! :o)

    I took these photos of doors just for Thursday doors. Then decided I wouldn’t do a doors-only post. Then decided I’d link anyway, just in case it’s ok. There are some cool doors here, but you have to dig for them. Thank you as always, for the opportunity to be a part of this community.

  5. Oh, how brilliant are these! I can tell how your heart sang when you found them. And I love the positive messages too. Resistance is fertile!

    I continue with my door tour of Farnese – part 4 and the end is not in sight yet – as Tuscany turns orange and I cannot leave my municipality any longer:

  8. It’s like a never ending story, in a good way. There’s so much to explore and what a colourful display of street art. Here’s mine for this week, thanks Norm.

    The one with the wheels? Barn door, I think? My fave for door style, but you can’t beat all the colors of all the others. Is this where all the artists and writers live, i.e., my future new neighborhood?

      The whole neighbourhood (we spell it with the “u” so you’re gonna have to get used to that) has always had an artsy bohemian vibe, with lots of writers, performers and artists.

        I will gleefully add ‘u’ to words that don’t need it here. I appreciate more colourful language. See?

  17. Good morning, Norm. This is the area that just keeps on giving, isn’t it? I love that old stove, the man ducking into a house?, and the one near the end with the big leaves and the keyboard. Yes, an upside down horseshoe supposedly means that your luck has run out. Hopefully not true.

    You spoil us – way too many great doors and some stunning murals. I just had a quick look at the @Paulaprezende murals and it turns out she is an artist from Porto in Portugal. I love the raised door with the horseshoe and elevated steps.

    Oh, those are wonderful! I especially like the cat-fish, the sliding door, and the Resistance Is Fertile sign. πŸ˜€ My doors this week are from friends in England:

  21. I do love the Fish! I wish we saw more of this type of creativity here. Takes an old city I think. I’ll be on the road a bit, but still checking in.

    What a love day for a colourful walk! When I think of Street Art I always think of Montreal. My Grandmother used to tell me that if the horseshoe was turned over, all your luck had run out.

    Walking out under that horseshoe would certainly bring a person bad luck, Norm. These are great doors. There are some very talented and imaginative folks in that ally. I love the keyboard mural, but I’m drawn to the first (barn) door. I’m also fond of the cast iron stove door. And the frog, can I have the frog door?

    I’m returning to Asylum Hill today –

    Thanks for hosting.

  27. Love the colours. Artistic areas of cities are always fun to visit and photograph. Now for my last installment from Zambia, my honeymoon. And there is a door involved, too.
