Stairways and Shadows

Stairs are just awesome for taking photos of.

Perhaps it’s the fact they offer some nice lines, perhaps the symmetry or because they generally offer angles where the light is shown and others where it’s nothing but shadow; maybe it’s something else, and it’s the fact the viewer can then try to image where the stairs are going to take you that is so appealing – I don’t know, but they are very photogenic.

After I saw the light bouncing off the wooden panels in this shot I knew that the only way I wanted to process it was in black and white and that worked out well I feel. I introduced a faint orange colour to the windows as it was pretty sunny outside and this gave the image a more natural feel to how I remembered it on location.
