One of my favorite parts of living in Europe for the past two years has been exploring the pedestrian areas of old cities and finding hidden alleyways that split off the main routes. It's quite common to find side streets paved in stones, with intricate architecture and geometry in Europe's streets, and it's unlike anything you'll find in the United States.
Last week my husband (Photo Sherpa Guy) and I travelled through Hungary, Austria, Slovakia and Germany, and we saw a LOT of beautiful and picturesque alleyways. Of course, I had to photograph them all! I saved only the best, and I'm excited to present the alleys as my first set of images from this travel.
I primarily used my Leica M Monochrom on this trip, opting to focus on making beautiful black and white images. Europe is beautiful in color, but I like it in black and white too! All of the images were made using the Leica M f/0.95 Noctilux lens as well.
