I was walking through the Chinatown area of Singapore in December 2007 when this exterior stairwell caught my eye.
I was actually standing several metres to the right, when I noticed the strictly regimented pattern of the stairs and the rectangular “windows” above each step.
Then I realised that if I moved about fifteen metres to my left, I would be able to shoot not only the stairs, but the contrasting patterns (and colours) on a nearby building as well. The bright afternoon light also contibuted to deep shadows within the geometrical pattern.
And do you reckon you can spot a) two numbers and b) two lights?
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.
