    Between the buildings

    Here are some old steps between buildings, taken with the Ricoh GR.

    Nice shot. You made me search out an old book of Frederick Evans photos. Have you thought about platinum?

    Thank you.

    hehe I wondered if anyone would make the connection! Well done!

    I had not even heard of Evans when I took this, though, but of course it is such a photogenic spot that thousands have taken a similar photograph.

    Yes, I have indeed thought about platinum, and platinum/palladium, but they are expensive processes and do require a lot of experimentation and skill to nail down one's own process. Financial and space/equipment restraints preclude pursuing any "alt" processes for the time being, but it does occupy a spot at the back of my mind.

    Didn't make the connection at all - just thought it was a good photo

    Now realise it was an excellent re-creation

    Cathedrals especially Gothic do nothing for me & I would never consider a career photographing them though the steps of the "New" Coventry Cathedral would (& have been) very suitable for this theme

    Well as I say, I didn't recreate it consciously. I don;t recall ever having heard of Evans or seen his "Sea of steps" prior to making that photo.
