Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Alleys

Alley

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:

Alleys

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?

Summer Holiday in Milan

It was the first thing I did

The milky mass slid

oozing between my fingers.

Sticky,

sweet,

cold

– on my tongue.

Surely one is okay;

Part of the fun?

To hell with the scales

and my dieting fail.

Heat is enemy,  to gelati and man?

Sun worshippers think it means a deep tan.

In the heat and humidity, I’ll always complain.

Yet, searching all winter, “Is it spring?” a refrain.

The north shovel the ‘white stuff’ and wish winter gone,

Whilst my lament is no more gelati, now that I’ve flown home…

😦
