This is the fifth and final image in my London underground mini-series. Thanks to everyone for all of your positive comments on this series throughout the week, I’m glad you like them.
After a long, hot, crammed, sweaty journey in rush hour I’m sure thousands of commuters are happy to see the stairs at the end of the journey which will take them up towards freedom and salvation. I intended this image to simply be evocative of that, however I can imagine that the shot, along with the title, may have parallels with leaving this world for the afterlife.
I guess I could have called it Stairway to Heaven instead?
The image itself was taken on a Sunday afternoon in Covent Garden…ironically one of the stations on the underground where you really don’t wish to take the stairs to the exit as they’re the equivalent of a 14 storey building. Most people just take the lift.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week long mini-series, and that you have a great weekend ahead.
