Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #84: Narrow

Ahh the narrow streets of Europe.  Many were definitely not built for cars, or for tourists for that matter.  But they have so much character!

Isn’t it amazing to find a surprise, like the cathedral of Barcelona above, waiting for you at the end of one of these old streets?

Once, in Toledo, Spain, my friends and I didn’t even bother picking up a map just so we could wander around all the twisted little old streets.  (Don’t worry, we didn’t get lost; Toledo is not a very big city.)

You never know what you will find down one of these tiny alleys between buildings, like this one in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Even Venice, a city without many streets, has narrow, convoluted pathways–they are just canals instead!

You can find more narrow things at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

From Inishmore, Aran Islands.

Some of the ruins from the Seven Churches site, which actually only has two churches, as well as several other buildings and a graveyard.  The ruins probably date from the 8th-15th centuries and were a Roman pilgrimage site.  The yard contains the medieval graves of saints as well as more modern ones of local residents.
