Not even my mother, who grew up here, can remember this passageway.

Love my camera and am working to improve. My photos are generally taken with a Nikon D3000 with either an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens or a 55-300 mm lens. European shots and a number of more recent ones were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera. I have a new IMAC and play with the iPhoto program. I also crop judiciously. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    That’s the perfect title, goddarb. Like it very much.

  • Thank-you so much. I have hesitated about posting this for some time. Thank-you for the visit, for the fave (a delicious treat!) and for the kind words.

    I love these kinds of places, with tunnels and curious meanderings. When I was in France, I had to walk through such a place to get to my hotel, though the stones were white and the pavement was actually cobblestones. it was quite lovely and old world, and I was charmed by it. I know the alluring nature of such places, and I was delighted to see you had captured it! :)

  • Pembroke is more of a town than a city. Passageways are always from the 18th or early 19th century. But nobody really sees them . Or uses them much (see the collection of leaves and papers in the passage). So glad you like it. I could not resist – having stepped beyond what everybody sees into what is there but not observed. It is surprisingly interesting.

    I love this. Alleys and old abandoned places are amazing to me. I love the black and red tones :)

  • There are a couple of alleys like this downtown just off the main street. I have to confess that the downtown is almost dead but not quite. This is a community of somewhere between 13,800 people and 16,300 people (depending on which sign you happen to be looking at) and it has the stupid nerve to enjoy being the smallest city in Canada. Can you imagine. Never mind – I grew up here and I ’m back for my Mother and it grows on me. I love finding the unseen things like this. thank-you very much.
