Got some fresh new doors from the Plateau . These are great namely because of the layers of paint that have accumulated over the years.
Most of these doors are from back alley's behind St. Laurent and Mont-Royal, just a sliver of the plateau but a good one.
Some of these doors still had tags and characters from a few years back, plus plenty of new hits. Plateau doors are always soaked in paint, they represent some of the most organic, flowing surfaces in the city.
Whenever I need a good dose of graff these back alleys are a solid reminder of the grimy character of writing in Montreal.

I went on a flic mission to the Plateau last Sunday as it had been far too long since I had stomped about to see what was up. I missed the alleyways and rooftops off the main streets that I used to frequent when I was living on Henri-Julien and Mont Royal a few years back. The rooftops would have to wait, however, as Sunday was strictly a street mission. I started at Mont-Royal Metro and snaked my way through alleys and side streets up to St. Laurent then made my way down towards Prince Arthur doing the same. I only had a few hours so I was trying to get as much as I could out the time and light that I had left in the day. I got plenty of shots including a lot of new doors, plenty of tags and throwies, and even a few nice pieces. Here they are. Hopefully I'll be able to hit the Plateau up again before the snow drops and cover some more ground.
