M.C. Escher spiral

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 3 April 2013 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

The Art Deco style of Everglades House in Leura. With a slight twist to the view, the steps and unlikely angle remind me of the work of M.C. Escher.

A beautiful capture of this elongated staircase!! Your PoV is quite mesmerizing in a way and I can definitely see the resemblance to M.C. Escher's work. When looking at just the steps, it was hard to see which way was "up". :-)
