It’s not so long that I’ve been there, but this is a classic case of that I only remember what I’ve photographed.
Looking at the image, I had no idea where exactly this place is. The striking fact was my point of view. I must have been on the level of the first floor, high above street level, and that while the small alley we are looking into leads upward! Strange, huh?
Fortunately I have another image taken 50 seconds later, and that’s of a place I know. This made finding the spot of the Image of the Day on Google Street View easy. Here we are: shooting from a raised position into an alley leading upwards 🙂
