I know that this isn’t the first time that I have blogged about alley doors (previous alley post, Nov 2017) and I know that I tend to take a lot of pictures in alleys so I hope that you aren’t rolling your eyes right now.  I’m not sure that I’ve found anything “wow” or anything completely new, but here we go with a little bit of rust, a splash of paint and a dose of weathered …..

below: A dead end alley with three levels of doors.

below: Lots of rusty hinges and peeling paint

below: Not an inviting place to sit and chat!

below: Something to catch an eye – a bright red door amidst the greys and browns.  If you look closely, there is a bird roosting on the door.

below: Look up!  And watch your step.

below: An alley with some colour in blues and greens…. and even a few straight lines.

below: Are you wondering if something’s missing?  Where are all the graffiti covered doors?

Ahhh…. here we are. 

below: Part of Graffiti Alley.   A birdo eye peeping over a wall.

below: Another birdo, this time a rooster head and a ??? tail.   Cock tail?

below: There really is a door under there.  A very narrow door.

below: Another narrow door.  This one is adorned by something purple, something that looks like a head but isn’t a head.  More heads, as pasteups on either side of the door.

below: I think that there was once a red heart on that door.

below: Mass confusion on the wall, the door, and the window.  Many people have left their mark here…

below: Maybe the Pink Panther is suffering from writer’s block, pacing back and forth waiting for inspiration.  Or he can’t find the doorbell?  He forgot his key?  No one’s home.   Abandoned.

This is another Thursday Doors post inspired by Norm 2.0’s blog.  You can check out Thursday Doors  for links to even more doors that other people have blogged about.   Take a wander over!

    Some great shots in this collection. What I love about Graffiti Alley is that there’s always a few new ones every time I go 🙂

  3. Love the selection of graffiti, Janet, especially Pink Panther and the typewriter. And, of course, the alleyways.
