About the Image(s)

I found this scene at the local indoor mall on a quiet morning. I liked the light and shadows, and the door leading who knows where. Shot on my iPhone 7, then converted to BW and adjusted with Snapseed on my iPad. I added a small border using the app Retouch just to hold the image off the black web page.

Wow. This is image has a very mysterious look. Love it. It makes my mind to think about what could be going on in this exit door and the lonely stairway? I liked the glow that seems to be present in the mid tones and highlights. Jerry   Posted: 01/05/2021 09:54:28

When I first saw the photo I thought of an old black and white drama program. It makes me wonder who is coming down the steps or is behind the doors. Very dramatic photo, and the contrast and shadows are excellent.   Posted: 01/06/2021 22:11:25

This image pulls one in and then demands that you try to find an interpretation that makes sense. I spent a lot of time trying to interpret my own reaction and still find myself intrigued, but unable to summarize it. You have created a puzzle that really works.   Posted: 01/07/2021 16:48:05

I love the simplicity and the contrast between light and shadow. It reminds me of how often we walk by these situations without a second thought. Nice that you stopped and captured the moment.   Posted: 01/11/2021 16:35:07

Mysterious, indeed! Where do the stairs go? Where do the the doors go? B&W is perfect here as is the lighting.   Posted: 01/12/2021 12:22:51

Minimalism photograph making the most of lines, lighting
and shadows. Good eye for the hidden mystery in simple setting.   Posted: 01/15/2021 17:15:25
