stairway to...

Renal Services.
I've been doing a lot of work at our local hospital lately and have just secured the contract for Stage 2 of the new hospital that's being built, but loitering in the old part of the hospital puts me near this kind of place...the typically hideous colour palette of the late 60's/early 70's, linoleum and hospital green balustrades...delightful.
Actually quite cool!

Very good shot. Looks loke the Renal dept is in the bowels of the building..

Love the perspective here.

You might think its ghastly but I actually like those colours, Your presentation has modified the blue out of the green!

@maggiemae There's surprisingly little processing here - a crop, a tweak on the exposure and an extra 15% on clarity. Other than that...well, this particular stairwell is unused by the public, has remained uncared for since the hospital was built and is the victim of some appalling yellow light and a general lack of maintenance behind the scenes...
@sherimiya Thanks very much :)
@julzmaioro Ground floor...but the oldest part of the current building!
@jackies365 Thanks very much :)

Great capture of this staircase.

The lines, the tones, the edits... insta-fav!

Slightly off putting knowing its destination, but still makes a compelling shot
October 1st, 2020  
So cool. What a great shot.
October 1st, 2020  
Great lines, shapes and tones. I like it
October 1st, 2020  
yikes whoever thought of that colour combo 👀
October 1st, 2020  
You said hideous colors. And I remembered my youth and that's why I like it. Great composition and lines.
October 1st, 2020  
A great pov!
October 1st, 2020  
you have drawn out all that is good in that colour palette - a capture to stop and admire.

The type of staircase that kind of tempts you to throw yourself over.

I thought this might lead to your basement of dark deeds, but then it can't be cos there are no skull's, blood, or fire coming out of it and to brightly lit and decorated. Still great lines & pov.
October 3rd, 2020  
@hobgoblin Having it well lit seems to be the perfect way to lure 'em in...

Ah, the good old 70's shades of avocado. Takes me back...

@rexcomu The 70's have a lot to answer for, including me...
