Alley Cat

on May 4, 2012

Phoenix is a town full of hidden beauty. I love to find new places to photograph. Arcadia is a great place to take photos. It is a beautiful district between Central Phoenix and Scottsdale. Another beautiful spot for snapping photos is the Dreamy Draw area close to the Phoenix Mountain Preserves. This photo is one taken close to the mountain preserves in a relatively older neighborhood. Like many older neighborhoods in the Phoenix area, it has alleys. Alleys may seem like an odd place for a photo opportunity, but I think they hold so much character and history. I have many fond memories of touring the city at a young age through alleys. The alley was how you traveled to your friend’s house without ever having to set foot on the street. There were always interesting surprises that seemed so exciting. A couch someone was trying to get rid of, an “alley” cat or even discarded toys. All of which seemed like treasures.
