  2. Wow - truly a alley filled with texture and very interesting at that. Probably no sun has touched that pavement for a very long time. It looks very 'close'.

  5. Should have tried the crepes in the place on the right, might have warmed you up. Good shot of a 'typical' street in some of the old town areas that we get around Europe.

  7. The good thing with cold alleys is that you have a very good reason to enter into the Teddy bears shop (on the left) or the tea room (on the right) to drink a hot chocolate!
    that's why I love cold weather! Ü

  11. Rainy days can be cold, especially if you're used to a warm and sunny Californian climate! It does make a pretty picture though!
