Man walks down a well-lit alley at night as a car goes past in downtown Vancouver.

Vancouver Alley

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

I really loved the alleys in downtown Vancouver. Portland didn’t really have alleys and neither does Bozeman so maybe it’s a “not what I’m used to” kind of a thing. Alleys have a dirty, utility to them that’s fun to capture. I like the big red trash or recycling bin in this one.
