The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

However, I feel there are three equal subjects; the man entering the building, the stairway, and the dark entrance to what looks like a restaurant, each providing a sense of intrigue not knowing what lies beyond.
