205 by tfavretto 205 by tfavretto
This is an older photo that I wasn't too happy with initially, but have since revisited and decided to post. It's a somewhat minimalistic shot of a staircase running up the side of a fuel storage tank in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. This is roughly a 75% crop from a much larger image.

205 by *tfavretto - This is a remarkable photograph! The stairs entwining the fuel tank are almost escher-esque; how they magically become inverted towards the lower steps. The words make it all the more interesting; to me, almost a bit conceptual. And how the steps loom into the darkness is quite intriguing. Conclusively, the horizontal lines are there to help orchestrate the photography. ( Suggested by Matthew-T and Featured by hellfirediva )

I love it. It looks like something from Tim Burton's first short film, "Vincent."

I love the minimalism, and the harsh lighting, and how it disappears in darkness on the right :clap:

Staircases always lead to something, whether for better or worse that's the fun of it all. Especially with this shot. :+fav:

This seems just classic, although I've never ever seen it! It just has the feeling.. you know, just like footsteps in the sand.
