Monochrome Monday - 03-23-09: Ups and Downs


Monochrome Maniacs explore black and white.








I had a lot of fun with this photo of Pioneer Place mall in Portland. There are places where you can see 5 escalators at once. I loved the lines of this one but wasn't happy with the B & W, it seemed too harsh. But then I just played with it and added a reflection to create an Escher-esque effect.

The subject by itself is perfect.
The artistic touch is really creative. Well-done, Terri.

Awesome! It reminds me of those drawings that lead you all over and yet, you know not where you started!

It is a bit overwhelming at first, but it settles in nicely. Great shot.
