Intriguing. This moves from grey to blue (blue skies implied at the end of the tunnels?), with hints of blue in the foreground walls as transition. I like that strong diagonal shaft of light on the floor, and the way the diagonals hit the top corners.

"Todays image is a little random because I don't really know why I took it."

Why not Nathan? There are lots of interesting colours, shapes, lines and shadows in this and there is plenty room for the prosaic as well as the pretty on this site.
A great back alley with magic shades of light and shadow. Well done Nathan

I like this because it leaves me wondering what is up there around the corner. Muted colour & concrete & surprisingly little graffiti. Pleasing shapes & shadows.
Well spotted I say
Great capture, Nathan. Well composed with shadows, shapes and light creating an excellent image.

Must admit it doesn't look the most inviting of walkways but the shafts of light are very pleasing Nathan. Well worth the taking.

Doesn't exactly encourage one to walk down but I do wonder what's at the end!!! I've climbed many a hill to see what's around the corner!!! Great moody image.

The little alley looks intriguing and I love the DOF and those tinges of blues.
With or without the f/g shaft of light this is a winner.

The lack of colours other than the blue and the grey of the concrete look at first like selective colouring, Nathan.
There's a strong sense of being drawn into the image by the distant blue, but also a coldness that makes one hesitate.

8 Mar 2014 5:17PM
I'd say Four Urinals, Four WC's, Two Air Con' condense, and the wast from probably Two to Four Basins NathanSmile
A very well seen image whatever, and that Blue certainly hits the spot.
Enjoy the Game mate, come on England!!! (You're not Welsh by any chance Nathan? ) Blush

Good portrayal of urban decay. Strong lines lead you to the blue at the end of the alley.
I like this, so it's good that you took it. Would look more sinister in the evening.
