Alley


Sealed up window and dark passageway, delicate Victorian decorations and crumbly brick walls. Walls that have been here a very long time, and have their own secrets.

Quite an architectural mix in Michigan.

Dragonstar said...

So many lines and shapes - a total contrast with the more modern building just visible beyond. It's a different world.

Wonderful shot of the alley. I find it very intriguing.

Urban desolation...and yes, not only the walls, but all parts of those building could tell many tales...some we probably wouldn't want to know about!

Nice b&w!

All that's missing is the guy who normally sits on that chair watching the people walk by.

This picture looks like it could have been taken years ago. I like it in monochrome.

That's an almost Dickensian photo. Fantastic.

Your vision and B&W elevate the ordinary.

I really love this picture, what a fantastic monochrome. I think you have a very beautiful city, with a lot of scene to captured with or without color. great shot
