Photography Proposal

Theme: Back Alleys.

For my first project for my photography project I have decided to go with a theme that is based on the back alleys in town. These back alleys can be anywhere from the alleys in old town to new town.

What I am interested in the most about this project is the back alleys in old town because (obviously) those alleys are the oldest and have more history to them. I also understand the risks in taking the photos needed to complete this project, such as being weary of roads and the back alleys themselves as they could be an easy place to get mugged but to counter these risks I will travel with more people and make sure to use the crossings when needed.
