5th Floor

As we get ready for our photo workshop this coming Saturday, I’ve been going back through many of my recent images from the Stone and Everett mills.  This image was from my first visit to the Everett, and is another shot of one of it’s incredible stairways.  Aside from some updated electrical work, these stairways probably haven’t changed much at all since they were originally built.  They’re gritty, dirty, and dusty, and yet full of beautiful detail and texture.  The combination of all of these is of course the allure, and why we like to shoot them so much.

    Love the different spots of light and the glass-less window between flights! Good stuff!

    Love that window and that you can see the underside of the stairs. Look at the difference in the wood finish. Great shot.

    That circular window introduces a splash of different colour – and provides the balance to this image. Great POV, Steven

    No matter where is the frame I look my eyes are just pulled like magic to the circular window. Fantastic composition, Steven!

    Great tones and lighting in this wonderful old staircase, Steven! There is just so much character to be explored here, and I think you’ve done a wonderful job with it!
