I liked the way the stairs seemed to blend into the wall of the Reading Room and that you could only see people going up or down it at certain points. I had to wait about ten or fifteen minutes to actually get a lone person in this area. I also deliberately over-exposed the shot to give it more of a tundra feel to it. I showed this to the girl afterwards. She didn't seem that interested. She told me she had no friends with her and was talking pictures of herself. I offered to email her this, but she declined.
