BRISTOL 94 – SHADOWS AND REFLECTED SUNLIGHT, ON STEPS
October 4, 2015 15 Comments
I had a thing 10 or more years back about photographing shadows that fall onto flights of steps. I liked – and still do like – the way in which the vertical and horizontal elements of the steps distort the shadows as they fall across them.
Here, the prominent black zigzag shadows in the upper half of the frame are the actual handrails. The thinner shadows are the upright rails between the handrails and the ground.
It was a gloriously sunny day – a day such as we are often lucky enough to see in September – and yellowish light reflecting from a nearby window was falling across the steps too.
