NYC in Black and White - Fire Escape

Endangered Architecture

Fire escapes fascinate me with their functional elegance, art with a noble purpose.

Unfortunately, we are losing these lovely Twentieth-Century buildings. They are being torn down at an alarming rate, replaced with bland modern towers fitted with internal fire stairs. The look of these elegant brick and iron fa├žades will one day be a thing of the past. We have to enjoy them now.

Camera: Sony a7R II

Lens:     Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
