Beautiful shots like this are a thrill to me as it always makes me wonder what or who one would run into in these allies. Don't get to see to many around here and that adds to the fun of seeing something different. Love the colors and textures, love the wagon and the window at the end of the ally and then the lighting as it comes in from the side. Gorgeous work my friend. #9206606
