Downtown Alley



The illumination challenge could have kept me going for the rest of the year.  I shoot a lot of photos in the dark with lights!  When you look at your body of work ( or parts of it) you notice different things and details on different days.

When I was sifting through files, I found this city alley downtown and just liked the perspective, the people, the shapes and lines. Although it was captured in another season, the thermometer went up to 69 degrees ( I saw it lit up on a sign!) and for the second week of January it feels odd.

I think I need to return downtown and shoot some more alley views.

  1. There are a lot of contrasts in texture, design and shades. I particularly like the stones near the base of the building.

  2. Too much T.V. last night (or I need my eyes checked) — I thought at first glance that your title said Downton Abby! The downtown alley is just as impressive!!! So interesting!

  3. Nice shot, Ruth, and a testament to your “eye.” How many thousands have passed that alley without paying it the slightest notice? Then came you …

  4. Greetings from Australia,
    I love the perspective an composition of this photograph. It’;s absolutely brilliant, especially considering that many alley way photos are not that interesting. This one is excellent. Keep up the great work
    God bless

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
