Not a particular fan of this shot - there doesn't seem to be an engaging story within it. You do however get the sense that the street doesn't smell nice, and I like the fact you have made the effort to capture the back streets and true character of the area.
just because you do not see the story does not necessarily mean that there is no such thing - do you see the open and enlighted door at the very end of the alley?
this looks so wonderfully familiar to me (I stayed in Aix-en-Provence 2 years ago.) that I can't help but love it.
