Light at the end of the alley

This alley (mind the steps and the ceiling!) runs underneath the narrowest house of Dordrecht with a width of 2,80 m that dates from 1632. The fact that the alley is called the Darkest Landing is a detail I wanted to illustrate in these two pictures.

This landing is the starting point of one of the most popular boat tours through the city. The skipper just entered his boat and is busy preparing the next trip mirrored by the dove that is busy looking for a nice titbit. The shadows and reflections of the water on the wall never fail to enchant me. This and the view you have from this landing across the canal are the reasons I come back to this place time and time again.

Not sure if this alley qualifies for Cee’s Alleys Challenge (no way you can drive here), but I give you the link anyway: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
