Back Alley

The Twilit Lens is often billed as “From the Corner of Your Eye.” That was literally the case with this shot. This past Saturday, my assistant literally had to call my attention to something I might have walked right past: this amazing view down a side alley.

The USA is far too young to have the true concept of deep architectural age such as we see in the magnificent cathedrals and neolithic ruins of the Old World. But nevertheless there seemed a profound and thoughtful quietness in this scene, as if the buildings were waiting for something. Time seemed frozen, for not a speck stirred within these borders. Our footsteps and the snap of our shutters seemed an injection of life into the solitude of stone.

Exposure Data: ISO 1250, f/22, 1/80

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
