An Alley

Ireland 2_0018

What is it about an alley that is so atmospheric?  From an objective perspective, they are cramped and darker.  But when you step inside an alley, (at least in the daytime 🙂  ) you feel as if you’ve stepped into a secret place that you have discovered.  Hidden away from the world for a time, you are ensconced in mystery and quaintness.  Here are two shots from a Kilkenny alley which has more charm than should be allowed by law.  Please ignore the date on the second picture, it is a mystery how that got on there…not the right date by a few years, and I never put the date feature on. Also disregard the unsuspecting walkers who had the nerve to disturb our picture taking.  😉  Oh well….more quirky details that adds to the memories and the story of the alley.   Have a blessed day.  Slainte, LisaIreland 2_0016

    • Thanks…I too love the word ensconced. It sounds like exactly what it means. Ooohhh…I’m going to try to use it at least once more today if I can manage. heehee

  1. We have had so many laughs about the ‘unsuspecting walker’ in that last picture! Everyone always asks us if we knew him! 😀 haha
