BRISTOL 94 – SHADOWS AND REFLECTED SUNLIGHT, ON STEPS

Shadows of railings, and also yellow reflected light, on the steps outside Browns Restaurant; Queens Road, in the city centre; 30 Sept 2015.

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.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    When I first looked at this picture I thought it was a spray painted patten. I like that it reminds me of zebra stripes.

    Shadows and reflections – I love them! And when they play with each other, it’s even more interesting. Another one I like is when shadows of leaves fall across other leaves.
