I recently found an old micro-SD card which I’d used once upon a time in my old phone. On it I found these pictures which I had totally forgotten about. These pictures are of an alley way (now gone), next door to the building where I used to work. There was nothing special about this particular alley, other than a cool coffee shop (frequented mostly by police officers) and some interesting street art as well as some odd bits of graffiti. This old alley had a lot of appeal for me; I liked the grunge, the textures and the general feel of the place which, I realise now, has mostly faded from memory.
The alley and all the buildings within it, have been replaced by a nondescript, modern office building made mostly of glass and steel. In other words, no grunge, not much in terms of textures and as far as general feelings go, well, not quite what they used to be.
Interestingly for me, this is one of the few occasions where I have made a number of shots, a series if you will, from the one place. That is something I’d like to do more of but for some reason I rarely ever achieve it.
