On a whim I pulled over into a forest preserve parking lot. I looked around and had very little interest in shooting anything there. As I was turning around in the parking lot to head toward the exit, I noticed these stairs. They had an interesting texture and quality to them, so I made a few exposures.
However, I didn't really get excited about the image until I processed it into black and white. At that point, the completeness of the photograph came out in the way that I had envisioned it in my head as I was pressing the shutter.
