Photography – Fire staircases

Maybe you remember the other posts about stairs photography (here and here), so you have an idea about my attraction to this subject. This time I found some fire staircases on buildings facades that have an interest. See how something so trivial and maybe ugly can be seen with an artistic eye!

Do you remember this post about classic stairs? Today I have collected some examples of modern ones. As you can see it’s a completely diferent story! Here, the minimal style prevails, abstraction as a principle and an attemp of managing the structure as an element of beauty. Which one do you like the most?

My blue flamingo loves stairs! Not climbing them. Just watch them. They have something glamorous, especially the curved ones. They can be very artistic and for the designer can be a challenge for creativity. They can also be a great subject for photography and that’s what I’m going to show you today. I will stick in classic style of stairs because here is the magic, and in some next post I will reveal the contemporary magic!

As a matter of fact, stairs are so tiring they should be beautiful!!
