Mordialloc Rotunda Staircase

Jason Green

Croydon, Australia

Artist's Description

Returning to my car in the dark after shooting the Mordialloc Pier, I couldn’t help but notice this brightly lit structure in the middle of the park nearby. I went over to find a rather ornate rotunda which led me to unpack my equipment and start shooting again.

Reviewing the images when I got home, however, I found myself thinking that everybody has seen photos of rotundas before… so I focused my post-processing efforts on a few photos that I took by getting up close and personal with tightly cropped views of certain aspects of the structure. This is the one that I liked the most: a golden staircase leading up to a black star!
