Drainpipes are a slim fit.

Were you expecting a pair of Jeans



Wednesday into Thursday seem to have turned into the unofficial ugly (or to be politically correct, pretty challenged) part of town photograph. Not the intention just the way the images fall when I am mooching for a daily pic. So once more unto the alley. Well another alley. Instead of going all the way inside and down into the bowels of the damp dark back passage we stand on the edge looking up, Parliament Street side. Slim isn't it? All the alleyways are here. You lose weight or your walk round. Simple as that. 19th century passageways were not built for 21st century fast food diets. I'm sure the sky would have the same delphinium (fancy named purple shade to you don't ya know) hue peeking above and through the two building. Sure the dilapidated hanging basket would not have been there then either or the drainpipes to catch and release the rainfall. Those are the grey pipes in case drainpipes confused you.



Not exactly the most drop dead gorgeous photo of Ramsey, but part of the fabric of the town nonetheless. Besides I am sucker for a purple haze sky and I am preparing for a holiday. Oh yes. It's France.

Does this one have a name. Some of them don't have names do they? Just catching up with the church photos. Dramatic black and white.

I'm sure the Pyrénées Orientales won't be quite as deserted as Versailles. Saint-Cyprien is where my grandfather was born! ;-) I hope you have a good time there!

Great shot making the ordinary seem dramatic.

Cieldequimper- I have seen many images of St Cyprien and it does look very pretty.

AB- Inspiration strikes.

Love that purple sky! And it's a great shot as always -- even if it does make me a bit dizzy!! Love it!

I see you ventured only into the very edge of the alley entrance ... I won't ask the other question -:)))

I really like this capture, especially with the purple haze sky.

Love these parts of town. The colour of the sky..is that real??? I'm also heading off to France soon. Same needs.

Mojo said...

Never knew that shade of purple haze had a real official name. Cool angle, I really like it.

But what's this about jeans?

I don't know when you are going on a holiday, but I wish you a great trip and lots of beautiful skies!

As some of us us being reminded of Woodstock, that took place 40 years ago in Bethel, New York, just the words "purple haze" take me back to Jimi Hendrix and his incredible guitar work. Sorry to digress from your alley. But the color IS outstanding.

Sheesh, and I thought our alleyways were sorta small... well, yeh, but nope, not anymore! What a crazy look but a pretty color up up up!

Dark, damp and smelly. Sounds more like Peel. Looks pretty though.
