Alley Views

I have always been fascinated by alleys - those narrow, utilitarian, back of the building accessways that take care of garbage, deliveries and electricity lines. Some alleys take on a special character of their own and compete with the "regular" streets in terms of interest and variety with bars, stores and housing that is an exciting facet of the city.

In this alley a car has been parked close enough to the building to allow traffic to pass. The door to the right of the car could be to a shop, a studio or an apartment. In further posts I will be looking at other housing choices that people make - from downtown to McMansions.
