Shadowplay

Staircase Shadow

Maybe not Schroeder's reversible staircase illusion, but cool enough for me. I noticed the shadowplay on the wall after I had shot Thursdays panorama photo. I had to wait a while for the camera to process all the photos from that panorama and when it was ready I quickly aimed the camera across the road towards the staircase.

Absolutely wonderful, Steffe. This is one of those serendipitous photos that is an instant masterpiece. Frame it and hang it!

Stunning shot. Well spotted.

You bring us so many portraits of the people of Sweden that I was surprised by this. It's gorgeous. You've got hard light and shadow but also subtle changes of tone on the wall.

Thanks all. I was lucky to be at the right place on the right time.

I might just to that Jacob.

Thanks Bob, the portraits is why I'm still doing this.

I visited the mall again a day later, but magically half of the staircase was gone when i had a look.

Fantastic study of form, light and shadow! makes me think of all the ingenious interplay I miss every day because I'm not looking..
