"After Escher" was in my 7-24 exhibit. It's been one of my personal faves from the first time I saw it on my computer and was dumbfounded. It had been an almost "throw away," last second shot of stairs outside the building I live in. I was fairly certain all those angles just would not work visually. Well, according to my eye and the eyes of many viewers, I was quite wrong.

It was also one of those photos for which a title just jumped out at me. A fellow resident was quite amused by it. She said that her first weeks here had been a bit like living in an Escher print. With the several different sized and shaped buildings, various inside and outside staircases, and connecting overpasses, and courtyards and gardens, I totally agree. It took me over two weeks to find my way around without asking someone for directions.

In any event, this has proved to be a popular photo; one that I also like. It's taught me to follow those last minute urges to snap a pic. One never knows!
