    It looks so much like the Temple Bar Archway in Dublin – without the litter… and the guy playing the bodhran.

    This is a lovely picture i love the darkness of the path and the light behind. Did you use any filters or computer enhancements on it?

    Nice Photo, thats called a “slip” as opposed to an alley, this one is called the “butter slip” as it was where butter was sold in mediaevel times. I grew up quite close to there 🙂

    This is no alley, it’s the “Butterslip Lane”, this was where the butter stalls were laid out on the way down to the Market Yard.
