Loitering on the stairs (theme)

by Helen Hooker May. 02, 2012 6204 views

There??s a bridge across the railway lines on the outskirts of Chichester which I planned photograph for today??s stairs theme. However, as I walked across it to reach the steps on the far side I noticed a chap sitting in the freight yard below, loitering on the stairs of his portacabin smoking a cigarette. I managed to catch just one frame before he went back inside ?? talk about split second timing! I did take some shots of the bridge too but this shot just seemed to say something more interesting to me than a simple flight of stairs.

Very well made, because small, it's almost necessary to make out him and it's wonderful !
