Very cool... though vertigo-inducing. ;)
That is a very M.C. Escher-ish photo. It is hard to tell which is up and which is down.
Stevie is so right. this photo has that illusion type quality!
Good god! What's leading where? This picture made me wonder. I actually tried to figure where things start and where they end. Nice shot!
So very NY. I love it.
Not the place to be when lightning strikes. I'd probably get hysterical lol. I get freaky around metal structures here in TX. Especially stuff like metal bleachers.
ooooooooooooooo i really like that daryl!
Super angle, making me dizzy...
I love it, Daryl. The geometry of fire escapes is sublime.
Brings to mind movies from the Forties... and since. My funny mind.It is a good picture full of patterns.
Hello Daryl:I think we've been meme neighbors before. This photo makes me dizzy just looking up at it. Such a great capture of a New York Scene!
I dub this The Staircase Of Love, because it appears to be completely confusing and impossible.I know I know, never show a photograph to a poet.
Yes, very Escher-like! That, I would hang on my wall, if I had it.
Oh! Up The Down Staircase!Was that in black and white? ;)
an interesting shot with angles here n there.... almost dont know where it begins n where it ends :)
On my last (my only) trip to NYC I couldn't stop shooting fire escapes. You do them different in the states, and they make great subjects. Flickr have a group for them!
I feel monochromatic today. Love the photo..
Great shot...looking forward to NYC in the new year, yay!
the composition is sterling!! as is the lightwell done
I like this with all the lines!
I like this a lot! Great lines, of course, and play of black and white...but the subject itself is so interesting - or the way you captured it is so interesting...almost looks like some kind of child's play set...
Fire escapes make me dizzy. But maybe it's just me;)
Hooray for MM! Wowsers I'm a dizzy miss Lizzy!
the stairs in b&w is a wonderful contrast...it certainly reminds me of new york and its alleys...it looks dizzy but in a good way...^-^
The patterns are there if only you look for them. You have.
Thanks for your visit at my blog! Your picture - so cool perspectiv! Looks great in b&w!
Wonderful lines and angles! I agree with steviewren - I thought of Escher straight away. I love it!
So rich! Reminds me of mikado game - challenge to sort the lines! Great image!
The lines and shadows seem endless.
I think I would get lost in all those stairs.
With my knees it might be better to just jump...
That's an interesting shot. Looks like a series of ladders instead of steps.
The next time I come to NYC for a visit, will you take me to see this IRL?? We country gals don't see things like this too often. OK, EVER! SO cool!
I wouldn't want to climb up or down that lot but it's a great shot Daryl. :)
I love the way the shadows trick the eye in this one. I'd love to follow that stair and see where it goes. Great capture!
Great contrasts! Makes my head swirl..
Looks complicated, but a fantastic picture!
Marvelous lines and shadows ... reminds me a bit of M C Escher too. I don't think I'd be very comfortable up there looking down.Hugs and blessings,
Love the depth and complexity achieved with such a simple subject.Calico Contemplations
A fire escape is always interesting and something I don't see often where I'm from. Very cool this one.
Like an Escher drawing. Great perspective.
I love the intricate pattern of the fire escapes.
Way Way Cool Daryl.<><
Perfect shot for B/W, love the different lines.
gorgeous patterns / repetition
I love the linear look to this.. very sharp.
Boy, you'd think they'd come up with a less complicated design for an escape route!
I always love visting you. You have such interesting photos.
That's a lot of geometry, nice in b&w. Glad we don't have that kind of stairs here.
I'd hope I never had to climb down that doggone thing! What a great shot. Well captured!
Immediately makes me think of West Side Story.Excellent shot!!!!!!!!
Good choice for a monochrome.
I love this shot. perfectly framed
I don't have a problem telling up from down, I just love all the lines and angles and shadows.
