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.
Often we find subjects so interesting, we can't help but train our cameras on them. Most of the time the act of snapping a photo goes by uneventfully. But sometimes, a little trouble finds us. Here's one such story by bloomchen.
Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.

When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
Film swaps often produce the most exciting photographs. More than physically exchanging rolls, it is a collaboration of ideas and stories between two people who share the same love for experimental photography.
Capturing a story through the lens is an easily mastered feat for the photographer. Anyone can tell a story, but not everyone can make up their own. English artist and illustrator Katie Eleanor writes her own stories of fantasy and color with her camera.
Most of us organize our photo albums according to events or places. Some prefer to classify their photographs according to film or technique, while others compile their best shots. Have a look at this month's most noteworthy albums and learn how to tell your stories through visual organization.
Paris-based photographer Anna Rakhvalova knows her timing. She can catch someone's good angle and that perfect stroke of light. All of which made us wonder: Can our new lens live up to her expectations of a good portrait?
It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
