Photo Stories: Spiral Staircaseby lavisionmd

1

The simplest, most mundane of objects can appear mystic and perplexing when photographed from a certain angle.

You might have thought that you were looking at some charm or amulet, but that is actually a picture of a staircase you’re looking at. Lavisionmd himself tells the story behind it.

“This photograph is really special for me because I took it on my very first roll, it’s also my most popular picture! I photographed the stairwell of my building and was quite amazed by the color I got.”

The photo was taken using a Lomo LC-A+ camera loaded with Fuji 100 film in Paris, France.

Photo Stories is a series dedicated to sharing the tales behind your photos — from your point of view.
