  3. ...and what, «Louis» would like to know, was 'dedelstein' doing climbing around on the top of the fire escape to make an inscription on the ornamental moulding?

  7. Even before I had scrolled down enough to see your words, I knew it was a theater fire escape. Odd. I guess most have the same configuration.

    Fire escapes are not my favorite things to be on - fear of open heights - but they make great photos.

  8. That reminds me of a prison.

    Love the shadows.

  9. I always like the way back of buildings look for some reason. The back of my house and my barn look better to me. Nice capture.

  11. Didn't realize you'd been taking lessons from Banksy, I thought you were just a fan. ;) Nice tag!

    Nice shot too. I can't work out if this is a fire escape or just a balcony... balconies. I'm guessing the former, but I've never seen one quite like it.

  12. That's a neat shot. Ends up looking almost like a rendering.

  13. Never thought a fire escape could be so interesting. This could be a work of art. Thanks!

  15. I did a post about the Beacon Theatre also, cause I saw Snow Patrol there. It was a great show, it is absolutely beautiful too.

    I also love this picture. I will have to go by the theatre in the daytime now.
