Alleyways: Photo Collection

I love alleyways. Narrow, often winding paths that snake between buildings. In urban settings, in particular, they often seem to provide glimpses into the daily life of residents. Their narrowness frequently results in interesting plays of light and shadow.

I was recently reminded of my fascination with alleyways by this article from AFAR magazine, and was inspired to revisit my old travel photos to put together my own photo collection of alleyways.

In sorting through photos to put this collection together, I came up with some other ideas for photo collections. I am planning to do a periodic series, each with a different focus.
