De La Fontenue was a rich hunting ground for alley ways. This was another of my favourites. The focal point - the yellow light spilling over the door way. The plant providing a contrast to the stone walls and the random nature of the windows all make this composition special.

Light at the end of a tunnel?

Another favourite. I love the gradating light defining the cobblestone path way broken up by darker inlay helping define the perspective. In contrast there are sharp glimpses of light - one on the right hand side and four on the left that also enhance the perspective without being dominant. Then there is the suspended dome structure breaking up the over exposed sky.

My favourite alley way. Central focus - the umbrella. Your eye then gets drawn by the hints of colour in the balloons highlighted in a sliver of light. The eye then lazily picks up the detail of a painting in the top left hand corner of the composition. Looking deeper into the image the viewer then picks up an amazing landscape in the background.
