BW-32 is on: Stairs in black and white

August 25th, 2018
Thank you to @joemuli for hosting the last black and white challenge. And thank you to everyone who voted on my photo.

The theme for the 32nd challenge is “STAIRS”

Stairs can be the main subject of your photo, but can be also an element that helps composing a scene. You can picture a full staircase, or only details of it. Stairs offer opportunities to include geometric shapes or leading lines into your photos. Lights and shadows effect on stairs are also another way to play with this subject.

Here are a few examples:

from HCB:

From Sergio Larrain, who lived and photographed in Valparaiso, Chile, a city full of staircases:

Stairs can be even suggested by your photo, without appearing in it. This is one of my favorite photos of stairs, without showing any!

Some other inspiration:
And many more here:

So go ahead and portray stairs any way you want, has to be in black and white, of course!

The challenge starts today and finishes on the 17th September — there will be a few days for voting.
