my travels through a lens

As we were trying to make our way from the depths of Montréal I spied just one more street I needed to see before we left. It was full of colorful porches and doors. 

I knew I wouldn't be seeing anything like this once we departed. For some reason we don't dress our porches up like this in New England. 

These three decorative supports were my favorite. 

Each being so different in color but each one being so lovely. 

I bet these have a name other than decorative supports, I would love it if you left me a comment telling just what that name is. 

what color would you paint your porch? I am thinking turquoise.
