Going Up With Straight Lines And Angles

I’m finding more and more photographic opportunities in the most mundane places. I think what makes this one is the 28mm lens on my Ricoh GR that takes in all the angles of the escalator and elevator together with the lucky coincidence of having just one person perfectly positioned in the middle of the moving stairway.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. This is a fascinating photo. At first I was thinking how the lines all create such a sense of movement, but strangely then the man and escalator actually look immobile. And the elevator to Braintree looks like a sign out of a sci fi movie. Nice work!

    1. To be honest the result of this shot surprised me. I took it primarily because there was only one figure on the escalator and I thought that might be interesting but later, upon really looking at it, the lines came into play. Glad you liked it.

I'd love to hear from you
