STOPS ALONG THE WAY

FLIP SIDE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

18 Comments

Two street scenes that couldn’t be more different. Both were taken in Montreal last summer, when we walked the city from east to west and back. I spotted Mary Poppins as we approached a crosswalk. It was an unusual location for this character and I imagine the artist had fun with that. The second photo was taken several blocks away in a quiet residential area and is an example of the fine stone homes that continue to line many of Montreal’s streets.

  2. Interesting contrasts from one city. Haven’t been to Montreal in decades, but glad some of the old architecture remains 🙂

  4. While the street art really helps the buildings in the first photo, I just LOVE the second one!

  5. Love that stone home! The Mary Poppins artwork is awesome. Is that ‘graffiti’ on the artwork? Looks like the ladders gave access to do them. If so, shame on them to mar the artwork. 😢

  6. Oh, that portico and lush entrance are wonderful with its greenery. I do love stone and wood together. This is a lovely find indeed.
