The alley...

"...he didn't know the distance from despair to hope,
but he knew that hope didn't sleep in alleys."

- Monarchs and Mendicants

"Hope Didn't Sleep in Alleys"
London, England

I always find it magical to recognize the extraordinary, when others might only see the ordinary. Never underestimate the allure of an alley.  Sometimes hope for a good photograph DOES sleep there.

Here's where I "link up" today


  1. Love the lines here. Great shot and thoughts!

  2. Saw so many places like that last year in Europe!

  3. Great shot made even better by transforming it into black and white. Have a great weekend!

  4. I do like alleys and I think they are wonderful places to admire. I love when I bump into one and see a cat walking around, a single flower pot or a person peeking thru a window. #PhotoFriday

  5. Amazing shot! The way the light is coming through and the man sitting in the doorway.....beautiful!

  6. This is lovely! Beautiful light and patterns.

  7. Love this image....there's just something about peering into an alley...
