Ross Alley, Chinatown, San Francisco

    "Originally home to gambling houses and brothels in the wild Barbary Coast days, Ross Alley is a very narrow throughway that has retained enough of its character to be featured in movies like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. "

      Nice gray !! maybe you shoul try to work a little bit the framing Because there is a very nice composition in your picture but I think the street is a little bit to centered. But nice pic !! A+

      I remember shooting that alleyway back in the day. Used to live a few blocks away, so it wasn't hard to get down there at night with my camera.
