Tuesday Photo Challenge – Alley (Dutch goes the Photo!)

Don’t lose your marbles

My wife had some errands to run at the Home Depot and I wanted to complete the challenge even though I was a day late. I wanted to capture the alley along the Alchemist & Barrister.

We parked in the Spring Street deck and we walked over. I spotted another alley between the small mall on Spring Street and the D'Angelo's restaurant. I only needed to wait a few minutes before my subject walked into the frame. I didn't feel a breeze but her hair seemed to flow behind her as she walked briskly toward the camera. She seemed in a hurry to get somewhere and walked while talking on her phone. Late for a date perhaps? Talking to her girlfriend about how badly the last date was and eager to get home? Who knows.

The Alchemis & Barrister or "A&B" as the locals call it, is a popular Princeton restaurant serving standard American bar food in a rustic interior with a patio for al fresco dining. Next door is Olive's Catering, a bakery/deli serving baked goods & an all-day menu with Greek & vegetarian specialities. An alley runs along the length of both businesses providing a shortcut from Witherspoon Street to Palmer Square.

Created by photographer Frank Jansen, the Tuesday Photo Challenge is a weekly theme-based challenge for photographers of all kinds to share both new and old photography.
