You've captured something that I've never really stopped to look at. Great shots! I like the 4th one best.

definitely something appealing about those photos, the shadows particularly. We don't have many fire escapes like that in Edinburgh.

those are great pictures! i never really looked at them like that! you make them look like art.

I love this series of photos--inspiring, too, as I'm trying to re-acclimate myself from being a rural to an urban photographer. Sorry I'm so far behind here--will be catching up today!

Thanks, all. I'm glad you liked the photos; I think I've also only noticed fire escapes recently...

Terrific photos. When I saw the title of your blog entry, I thought that perhaps you had escaped a fire. Such a literal mind I have.:<)

Thanks for showcasing something that is mostly overlooked. Such wonderful shadows.

HKatz said...

Thanks, ramona; the shadows are really something special :) And Nan, thank you, and I can understand why you gave that literal interpretation... thankfully there was no fire though.

This reminds me of a John Sloan's painting Women's Work. Do you know it? Here it is: http://www.allpaintings.org/d/8699-2/John+Sloan+-+A+Woman_s+Work.jpg
