This is one of my galleries that I keep expanding on regular basis: sandstone textures and colours. Sandstone seems to be nature’s favourite art material. It is rich in tones and surfaces. Complex layers of sedimentary quartz in endless variations. Sometimes so “artful” it is difficult to accept it just happened by itself without a deliberate art creation process.
Here is a topic I always feel I have never explored to any meaningful extend: Queen Victoria Building. It is vast architectural marvels provide for endless photographic opportunities on large as well as macro scales. Many of the interesting components of QVB are difficult to photograph due to inaccessibility, poor light or simply the crowds.
The photograph shown here is the staircase from the Southern end of the Queen Victoria Building, taken from the top floor. Initially I intended to do the reverse shot from the lower level looking up, however the strong down lights installed on the lift shaft make such photograph next to impossible.
