    Seems like most of the subway stairs in Toronto are covered in icy slush these days -- I nearly broke my neck going into Queen's Park station this afternoon.

    I took a <a href="http://www.photosensitive.ca/index.php?image=1074889714_0108-21-final";>similar picture</a> in Boston several years ago...

    Very intresting use of infocus and out of focus parts of this shot. I like it.

    Hi, Miles. I hope you are okay now.
    It's been snowing here in Japan since last night, though we have entered March. But spring is almost there just waiting to come in. So cheer up!

    I love your recent B&W shots.

    You've achieved a great sense of forboding here.

    I just love your shallow-focus black and white work, Miles. This is another great example of how your photography creates a mood and an emotional response. I feel compelled to descend those stairs, while at the same time hesitant to do so.

    Never knew Subway stairs could be art ... but you have managed to accomplish that.

    I keep thinking they're stairs in a school, leading to the basement. Must be the foreboding . .

    Thanks all.

    It's strange because they remind me of a school too, even though I know where this was taken, obviously. Maybe we had similar experiences...

    Such a minimalist composition. It's almost haunting. You must have massaged this in PS, but your work there is so subtle that this image overall really pops. Great stuff.

    great atmospheric shot. very surreal and ethereal. reminds of one of those movies when you can see what someone else is seeing. creepy and cool.

    I love the selective focus in this shot, does have a really great mood to it.

    So gothic, mysterious and beautiful tones and contrast. Reminds me of Murnau films for the creepy mood.

    I'm afraid that this one just doesn't do it for me. A rare exception from the work you've posted.
