G is for Ginnel

We call back-alleys or snickets ginnels in Leeds and the north of England. There's quite a lot round where I live, connecting up streets between old buildings and houses.
Love this-great shot Richard!

Utterly brilliant, i love how everything leads down to the eerie ray of light at the end and all the reflections on the crispy looking leaves. There's so many little snickets in York - I always wonder where they always lead too.

This look intriguing--a good place to explore?

@fysmith Yeah it was too dark to hold the camera so I placed it on the floor and did a manual exposure (8secs) but it was too low down so I propped it up on my ipod for this.

@clarissajohal Yeah it's in an old part of Headingley that leads down to a wooded ridge with lots of really old victorian buildings around. Maybe I'll take a few shots sometime

I've only just discovered you have three albums running and you're doing the alphabet from your area! Here's my "learn something new" for the day...never heard the word! This looks far nicer than any alley way I've seen in the states! It's actually quite pretty with the fall coloring and filtered light. Off to see some more of your album here!
