Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Alleys


This photo challenge is alternately hosted each Friday by the bloggers:
Something to Ponder About  and The Snow Melts Somewhere

The prompt for this Friday is:


Everyone is welcome to join in with the Friendly Friday Photography challenge.

Here are some alleys in the lakes district of Italy.

Alleys are found not just in the old world. The ‘New’ world has its alleyways too.

Melbourne’s streets was created in a grid like pattern of both wide streets and narrow alleys, as the authorities couldn’t agree on the sort of town plan they initially wanted, for the city: whether to make it more European like, or with modern wider streets, so they hedged their bets and incorporated both.

In Sweden, we have some unique alleys to showcase to visitors.

Both on the West coast and in Stockholm.

I chuckle to think how Manja Mexi would caption this photo?

  5. Ohh, Amanda, how lovely that you thought of me and my potential caption, and to hear that Snow, you and your father enjoy my wit. 😀

    Snow alerted me to your post. I would check it anyway sooner or later, but yesterday we arrived in Slovenia for a week and here I hardly have some time for blogging! I will do my best to gather my alleys some time by next Friday but hard to say when.

    I love all your photos, such a great collection. Is Mezzegra a town? I have never heard of it. The last scene would certainly get my attention, so full of stuff! However, I cannot see from up close what all there is. I can make out Chuckle Park but can’t see the details. What I can see, I love it all. But what I’d call this photo? “Well-lit spiky splendour in the city”, for example. Which city is this from?


    • Hej Manja! Great to hear that you are back in Slovenia for a break. Don’t stress about the blogging. You must make the most of your time there.
      Mezzegra is a town in Lake Como, Italy. Just across from Bellagio and George Clooney’s hangout! Lol! Where Mussolini met his maker.
      The final photo is a small informal cafe in Melbourne, Australia. Down an alleyway of course! Funny name. (lol). I loved the hanging lanterns and gaily painted picket fence. I actually didn’t go inside so what exactly Chuckle Park is, will have to remain a mystery. Have a wonderful week.

    • Wonderful alleys from the South of France, Suvi. And nice to see a little of you in the photos. I can relate to the water in the pools being hot – our backyard swimming pool used to get like that in Jan/February. You felt like you were having a warm bath. Not at all refreshing.


    • Thanks, Suvi. It is a favourite subject for me to take photos of alleys. Thanks for posting some of the south of France. It is funny but I never imagined France being a hot place in summer, until I read your post.

      • No I haven’t Amanda:( I have a bucket list of sorts, of places I would like to visit when i have some more money and some time! There are many old cities in India that have some wonderful alleys, but a place called Varanasi is probably the most special of them all…there are alleys that are wide enough for only a couple of people to pass! I have not been there but i have heard from people who have and I am eager to explore that myself! have you heard about Varanasi?

  11. I love love love your selection of alleyways. My favourites are the natural rock formation (it looks like it’s squishing that loose rock) and Old Town meets High Rise.

    And it’s so wonderful that you are hosting this new Photo Challenge – gives us focus & tickles our brains.
