Weekly Photo Challenge: “Geometry”
Again, it’s been weeks since I’ve participated in one of these challenges so this Urbex piece is my contribution for the latest theme.
The stairwell of the Hamilton Workers Arts and Heritage Centre is probably no big deal to most but to me, it’s so fantastically Escheresque. The optical illusion of this space; created by the many angles, similar tones, and seemingly incongruous shadows, is so phenomenal that whether you’re up top looking down or at the bottom looking up, you have to stop and look carefully at your surroundings to remind yourself of which way is up or down. Sometimes it’s just not enough to sense gravity.
