NY Capitol Building 1

A Brief Background StoryA Brief Background Story

This photo was taken in the judicial building of the New York State Capitol Building while waiting to see the Declaration of Independence. As we moved along, I noticed the Escher-like patterns of the stairways. I asked my wife for her digital Elph, turned off the flash, braced my back against the wall, tucked my elbows in and clicked away. The pictures turned out great. The light was quite dim such the shutter speeds were around 1/6 and 1/13 second and the lights in the doorways appear brighter than reality.
