Behind The Lens

Location
The picture is taken a grey and cold November night in the old town in the Swedish Capital, Stockholm. This is not only Stockholm's, but all Sweden, narrowest alley and it is barely over two feet wide.
Time
The picture was taken around midnight.
Lighting
I wanted the feeling that the alley, was both narrow and old. I did not want the lights to attract too much attention, but rather to show how they spread their light across the alley. Which made me choose a narrow shutter. After a while expressing I used f/22.
Equipment
I used a Canon 7D mk II with a Canon EF 16-35 mm f/2.8 L II USM. My gear was mounted on my Vanguard Alta Pro 263AT tripod
Inspiration
I was looking to take a picture of the old town in Stockholm that showed what it could look like in the past. This alley was what I thought fit my theme best. I had spent quite a long time on Google maps to find where I would stand.I went there quite late so there wouldn't be a lot of people on the street. These I could have remove in post, but the alley is so narrow that I had to move my tripod every time someone wanted to pass me.
Editing
I did the general adjustments in LR and some burning and dodging in PS.
In my camera bag
Beside the stuff I used for this picture I got a Canon 50mm f/1.8 a Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD and a old Sigma 10-20mm in my backpack. And some ND-filters...
Feedback
Get a sturdy tripod.
