Long Way Down

Looking down from the third floor to the ground floor (Viveca Koh)

This shows the staircase at Manor House B – or rather what’s left of it – we had to use the ladder (found by Mark in a side room) to ascend to the next floors up.  I loved the symmetry of this scene, and the way the light came in from the doorway on the right to hit the bannisters and wall on the opposite side.  Overlaid with a texture of mine from somewhere damp, hence the mouldy green bits that weren’t actually there – I have made it look even more decrepit than it actually was – but it was still pretty bad…..

    Pretty good perspective. Love the texture (thought the same does not fool the eye, having in the same level in the floor staircase and the wall). nice use of the wide angle …

    Nice shot Viveca; I love the perspective and that ladder down in the distance. Those wooden boards on the second level look they’re hiding something nice and unstable 🙂

    I’m feeling dizzy, where’s the Dramamine! Wow, this is a great capture, V. Your processing, as always, is spot-on. The forms and lines almost give this image an abstract quality, but the recognizable elements bring you back to reality. Well done!

  11. This is an awesome photo, Viveca! Holy smokes, what a location you guys found. I just can’t get over how desolate it feels! Your images really bring this site to life for us all, thanks so much!
