>> The Alleys
| thumbnails |
Alleys are a blend of the minimal and the excessive.
A chorus of lines and textures.
Harmonies of our unseen lives.
This is an exploration of the many alleys with great character
in Downtown Bakersfield, California.

Colour me impressed. This is the kind of photography I love and your processing is nothing short of brilliant. VVV

~V~Creative and well seen gallery. Nice texture and color throughout!
Your are definitely in your element in these alleys. Great gallery. v
Interesting gallery and processing of imagery. ~V~
Classic Kessler. Excellent!
Reminds me of a morning I once spent wandering round bits of Richmond, VA that I probably shouldn't have... (and in 100-degree heat, and without a camera...).
In my opinion, photographs that evoke such strong memories are always worth viewing.... Thank you! (V)
WoW ! a true wonderer's eye !
Life in the alley; there's always a story going on. I like this theme gallery with the off coloring. Voted
Fantastic work. The tones, the colors...really the feel of the 'real' urban USA that many people don't or don't want to see...what a mood you create here. Very artfully done. Great gallery.
great gallery...true to its theme throughout.....V

Cool gallery Doug - this is your element. Your unique processing is made for alleyways and old buildings!
Spooky and fascinating series at the same time.
A very personal style too.
I love it
I didn't see one photo of your sleeping bag...
Excellent gallery with rich colors, perspectives, great treatment...
Another DK special. What a joy to view. You have the gift of bringing the mundane to life. GMV

Excellent comps and treatment! V
I really enjoyed my visual walk along your alleys. Fantastic! The graphic element, the perspective, the color, together with your signature treatment, made it a great collection. Voted!
Great gallery Doug. I think one of the most important things contributing is the processing you're doing, but the compositional aspect is primary for me here. Great work as usual. Vote.
I'd thought of doing an alley gallery (does that rhyme?) so this is quite inspiring. Your processing takes these wonderful images to a whole new level. Whoa.
Very well done and inspiring. Among my favorite on Pbase!
I'm really enjoying this gallery,Doug.
Love that Doug Kessler treatment!
Stylish gallery...Colors and textures give a certain look that it's out of the ordinary...VEry well done!V...
The complete absence of people in this gallery makes the place appear even more deserted that it (probably) actually is. Great gallery! v
