Paddington Station

- by Don Stadius

This week's theme: Architectural Art - Windows

A window is merely an opening in a wall, or other part of a structure, that allows light and/or air into that structure. However basic that function may be, the many forms and meanings of windows make them anything but mere.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Paddington Station by Artist Don Stadius
I took this photo in London at Paddington Station in April of 2003. It has many element that I feel complete a study in perspective. The wall of columns and arches on the right vanish at a point which is the intersection with the angle of the stairway. The strong but muted horizontal of the stair risers provides the contrast.
