Tim's One Photograph a Day

Staggered Symmetry.

Staying at the Crowne Plaza in Reading, I had a new location for today’s “One Photograph”. About to head off into the town, I was struck by length of the hotel corridor. Apart from being a quick and easy shot, I felt it was something different and worth a go.

The long lines of doors, staggered alternately down each side, add to the feeling of length. The stripes on the carpet bring in the perspective.

It was interesting to note just how dark it was, despite being lit. The tripod definitely came in handy! Needing a long depth of field, this meant keeping the apperture small. Setting the ISO to 100 to ensure good colour saturation and minimal noise meant a lengthy exposure time.

Got a couple of odd looks from other guests as they walked past. However, I think it was worth it! May not be the most exciting hotel corridor in the world, but I am happy with the shot.
