Stairway Symmetry

Stairway Symmetry

I like urban architecture. The hard edges, the colours, the time-worn facades - there are a lot of different views in a normal walk around the local mall.

This shot is the backside of our local theatre complex, on the edge of the Tillicum Mall. It's a strange place, filled with a lot of pavement and concrete. On the other side of the theatre a parking garage stands alone, for some reason. There's hardly ever anyone parked on the upper level.

Random thoughts spring up during a morning walk. I'm always watching for people sleeping rough on the edge of the park. Sometimes there's a local guy who camps out on the first level of this set of stairs. At least I saw him there one morning and I've seen evidence of someone spending time there. I can't imagine what it's like and I don't care to find out. I'll stick to wandering through in the morning, with my camera. That's enough reality for me, thanks.

I recommend the 1aDay idea -- a lot of people are trying it on Flickr. But you'll be surprised how much work it takes to take photos every day!
