:D liking this.
i too have 2 similar walls i've been staking out for some time now. waiting for that moment something interesting happens around it....
though i'm not too sure wat emphasis ur trying to achieve here. if its the wall, then i think a lower shot might have been better. the signboard at the top is rather distracting.

Brilliant. A few bricks only are bricks but if there are persons they are a part of a history. This photo has cinematographic power. Example: The absent-minded man was walking reading the newspaper it he came up to the wall of bricks and passed across them. It is a joke. It he has more aspect of statement of intrigue of the black cinema.^.gvejou

What I like is how the simple wall gives our eye something to rest on before going back into the busy scene to study more. Nice composition.

Powerful shot. This wall evocate (as some comments have said) a character and a title of a french roman : "Le passe muraille", a man who is able to pass through the walls...

Nice shot, unexpected angle on the street.

I like the framing, making the wall the main element in composition.
