A Rivulet Runs Through It

A couple guys were chatting outside the Alibi Room when I took this twilight shot in Post Alley. All the usual suspects are present: The Market Theater gum wall, the theater's neon sign, the Post Alley sign in the distance, the alleyway lamps and the light patterns they form, the street artists stickers and posters on the right hand wall, the Alibi Room's neon sign, that patch of blue hour light, and running through it all, a trickle of water through the cobblestones

Fascinating how you direct our attention to the water and then invite us to see the rest.

The title of your post is a good play on the title of the movie...
;-D

Seattle has a personality all its own. This shot is exemplary of that.

One super post after another, that's what I've enjoyed as I browsed through your blog. It's obvious you're enjoying so very much around you. Neat!

So agree - the title is perfect and as usual, so is the photograph. So atmospheric and absolutely made by that trickle of water. Reminds me of the villages in France where water often runs down the centre of the streets.

Ha! Love the title!! And the photo, too; so typical of downtown shots almost everywhere. Very good!

I love the title. The shot has a spooky feel.
