This pre-loved exterior staircase caught my eye in Dawson City, in Canada’s Yukon. It was a warm autumn afternoon in 2008 and we had just driven in when I grabbed both my cameras and set off on foot around the historic Gold Rush-era town.
I don’t know how old this staircase would be, but the building seemed abandoned. The peeling paint and cracked timber formed a stark contrast to the colourful, well-maintained facades that are a hallmark of the main street.
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.
