Monochrome Odd Shot Monday



I took this because I really liked the shapes.



The end of the staircase at a shopping centre, seen from above.

I love these odd shapes - perhaps you should have made us guess as to what it was...

Kitty said...

Did you slide down it?

Good spotting with the shapes - they remind me of railway signals.

Wonderful shapes and use of the light. Top class b&w

I like these geometric ones you do, like the trollies. You have an affinity with line and form a Aileni with light and shade.That to me is very interesting. Two halves of a whole.

kden said...

those are some interesting shapes along with the contrast of the metal, black, and shadows.

Nessa said...

That is very interesting.

BJ Roan said...

I can see why you chose this shot. The lines are amazing, including the shadow.

Niina said...

Different, but a very good shot! I wonder how many hands have hold on to those walking down...so many destinies!

I like them too, because the whole world is reflected in those tubes.

RuneE said...

Good eye! The sunlight is an added bonus.

Robin said...

Ooh, I like this. Strong lines but at the same time fluid.

I was all about shapes this week too :).

Grace and Bradley said...

Very good, I thought I was looking up, actually it is downward!

Daryl said...

Oh I like this a lot .. last week Robin posted a shot of a fence that had the same feel .. I love the angles and shadows and its just picture perfect!

You were right Dragonstar, that's an interesting suject. It's always tempting.
Almost the true colors, no ?

Very inspirational....

Interesting shot. Fascinating how you can photograph something from an odd angle and it looks completely different.

Unusual shot that works really well for mono.

Very good pictures, I like how the shadows play their part in the staircase picture!

Snapshutter said...

Nice combination of lines and lighting.

Helena said...

Intersting! I thought it was going to be at a swimming pool.... hmm.

Katney said...

It works best in b&w. Very graphic that way.
