Only a cat could be that quiet... or fog on little cat feet.

*evocative* ... however, aren't fire-escapes for ... escaping ... in a downwards direction ...

Steffe said...

I'm in.

Kate said...

A unique and usual photograph of fire escapes. It's very artistic.

Lynette said...

Neat perspective, but too high-looking for me.

Anya said...

I think you cannot walk there without noise :P

When I lived in an old row house in Washington DC while going to college, we used the fire escape like a front porch.

Perfect image in B&W Brattcat, nice lines, wouldn't like to have to escape down them in a hurry, but you do what you have to!! btw how observant are you!! didn't think anyone would notice moi in the teapot!

Sharon said...

Genie, is right. I think the only way to be quiet on these stairs is with littld cat feet.

Jacob said...

The fire escapes I've tried to escape on have always been very rickety.

This one, I can't tell. But I got a crick in my neck trying! ;-)

A stairway to the stars?..

Sharon Creech said...

Where are you sneaking to, brattcat? What are you looking for, mm?

Jack said...

The older I get, the less willing I am to try walking on shaky structures like this. (But the lines on your top shot are cool . . . )

Can one be quiet on a fire escape?

Paula said...

I love metal working, especially with lots of angles, light, and shadow.

Bob Crowe said...

Such stark drama.All the apartments in my neighborhood in Queens had fire escapes. They seemed to blend into the buildings but your's jumps forward.

Virginia said...

I love fire escapes. I love t he steps, the shadows.

Lines and angles, perfect for black and white. Great photo.

Birdman said...

I wouldn't know where to start on that first one.

JM said...

The top composition is brilliant!

Irina said...

The photo of high professional. You made poetry from boring metal side stairs.

It is difficult...
