It's been a while since I entered the steemit photo challenge. This is a striking little lane near the centre of Glasgow. It has and does see some sights. Even in broad daylight when it looked clear I noticed after the fact a young feller me lad in the photo having a whazz halfway down, tsk tsk.

Taken on my Samsung S7, black and white filter applied with snapseed.

I imagine this narrow lane way has never seen the sunshine. But what an array of passing life it must has seen. Great image in b&w. Great perspective of looming buildings with scatterings of nondescript graffiti. Surprised at the tidiness of the bin lineup too. 🙏

·
71
  ·  3 months ago

I don't think the bins used to be so tidy but they have taken to chaining them in place. It is quite the sight at night!

TOO funny ~ Although a sad indictment of our society, that even our garbage bins need to be chained down these days.

Then again, nothing can stay chained down for too long. And when set free all manner of garbage may be let loose. Sending prayers. 🙏🌍🙏

Nice street image, I love the way the eye is drawn through the image with the leading lines and then you spot the guy having a pee

That really looks like a shady alley ... Get it? Shady? Hahaha! I guess you could say that my pun game is on ...

alley-gue of its own! Woah! Two winged beasts with one rock.

Seriously though, I really like the composition of this, dude. It was balanced so well. On the left side, you could see a row of trash bins and a more decrepit building. While on the right side, the building is only slightly worn. It's so ironic that the man was urinating on the relatively better side haha! Best of luck, brother!

Cheers man, I must say when it comes to prizes you should most definitely win pun of the week with

alley-gue of their own

Amazing!! You are right. Your pun game is out of this world!!! :0D

Or.. or.. it's so in this world, because it's


mine

and it's fantastic. Wait, no, core-ection... It's marvelous :D Really though, I'm just trying to do you proud, and carry your mantle ;)

·
·
·
71
  ·  3 months ago

Oh no, I think that mantle is definitely yours. Who else could have pulled off the mine one!!

Lol, I did wonder when I first saw it, then all was made clear!! :0D

·

Well ... you could pull off a better mine one, though I doubt that you would want to. Based on your handle, I bet it'd be...

EXPLOSIVE
