A number of years ago I had the fortune to work in the small French Town of Pouancé. It was a quaint little place with some awesome streets and alleyways. Here's one of them.
One of several to be seen down High Street in Hulls Old Town district.

White swan of cities slumbering in thy nest… White phantom city, whose untrodden streets Are rivers, and whose pavements are the shifting Shadows of the palaces and strips of sky.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Alleyway shop entrance. Seen in St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada.
The Temple area sits between Victoria Embankment and The Strand/Fleet Street and is home to a large number of barrister's chambers. It is a warren of small alleyways and cul-de-sacs and as I can vouch for, very easy to get lost in. But that doesn't matter because the whole area is dotted with small squares and sitting areas and to get lost there is no bad thing. There's also a lovely old 12th century church in the area and an assortment of historic buildings, some open to the public, some not. The image here is of a tiny alleyway running between some buildings and leading into one of those tranquil little squares. In fact the buildings you see are actually threefold although the one straight ahead and the one on the right are attached. This little entrance is small to say the least but I really liked the different textures it throws up as well as that single lamp on the wall to give it a little bit of interest.

The sun is just behind the horizon as Hialeah based CSX local Y322 slowly trundles through the overgrown and trash littered alleyway with two empty boxcars from Pan American Papers in tow. Having worked the Miami Downtown spur overnight, the crew is in their last hours of work as they switch the last remaining handful of carload customers in Hialeah's East Rail district. Pan American Papers, Sentry Industries, Suburban Propane, and Salco are the last customers in this area. The crew barely broke daylight in this scene, stretching the limits of my 5D. It was still completely dark and lightly raining when the rails started creaking and the engine came crawling around the corner to retrieve the cars. Hialeah, FL
Sometimes just the simple textures and lines found in one of Chicago's alleyways can be interesting. Especially a westward facing bit of late afternoon sun.

Seen in Hulls High Street which is the oldest street in the City...It was had a mixture of Merchants Houses an Warehouses..They are several Alleyways that lead to The River Hull which runs parallel to the street,
Narrow alleyway leading who-knows-where. You'll end up on the other side, whatever it means. To find it on your way back, that's completely different story...
I liked the light and colours... taken in a small alleyway between St Mary's Plain and Duke Street, Norwich, UK. The brickwork on the building was blue and the golden light from the window.
This young lady is on her way to explore another Graffiti alley I told her about (just ahead to her right).

A bit more than my usual subtle use of texture.
One of many charming alleyways in Monemvasia, Greece.
