I had forgotten about all the public alleys. Nice picture. It's perfect for black and white.

HA! b/w, signs, wall, graffiti, metal ladders ... what else can one wish for? ;-)

Love the strong shapes in this. Ideal for a mono image. You've a good 'eye' to make such an impactful photo from unpromising beginnings.

Great photo! It's probably not an alley I'd like to walk on during the night...

If you're standing on the Arlington Street side of P.A. 438 looking West towards Berkeley St, it's a great vista with the small golden dome (don't know the name of the building but it's right across from 500 Boylston and has Boston Sports Clubs inside) perfectly centered in the background. It's a cool spot.

Good bit of urban b&w; not sure if the dumpster guys read the message too closely.

You did a nice job making an everyday scene look artistic, like the tones in this one.
