Bricks, Shadows, and Stairs…Oh My!

A couple of weeks ago I took a drive to a charming little town that I haven’t been too in awhile. Mount Dora. Located in central Florida just North of Orlando, this beautiful small town has a lot to offer those who visit. There are shops, art galleries, restaurants, and parks just to name a few things. You can spend hours just walking around seeing the sights. There are lakes in the area where you can catch a fish or a beautiful sunset. At 184 feet above sea level, it’s not exactly a mountain, but that contributes to the name. I’ve included a link to the city’s official website, which goes into detail about the history of this beautiful city.

As I was walking around, this alleyway caught my eye. I really liked the pattern of the bricks on the walkway and on the building. The light was hitting it just right and creating some very interesting shadows across all of this texture. The stairway to my left just seemed to add something to an already photogenic scene.

    • It is very lovely! I hadn’t been there in years, so it was like seeing new things again for me! Maybe I can work it out in my schedule to meet you there and we can shoot together. Thanks for your visit Bella!


  1. Hi,
    Sounds like a very interesting place to go, I love going to places with a lot of history, there is usually so much to see and a lot to take in.
    I can see why you liked this alleyway, the brickwork has a different type of look, and the pathway seems to be done in the same brick, I also like the shadows that are cast. It would be very interesting to know when the buildings were built and if the pathway was done at the time.
    I noticed that there is also an opening to go underneath the building, a very interesting place, and I would love to go in that doorway underneath and check it out. πŸ™‚


    • I really enjoy visiting places with a lot of history also. I like to imagine what life was like back when a town was first founded. It’s always fun to explore a place like this. Thanks for your kind visit and comments Mags!


  2. Love the contrast between the blue sky and the red brick. I’ve driven through this town various times, but have never stopped to walk the streets. I’ll have to add it to my “to see” list.
