The Way of Art Deco

Geometrics meet curves on the back stairway to the balcony of the Tennessee Theatre. Perhaps just out of view, there is a slender hand on the rail, a swish of black silk, the scent of rosewater. Louise Brooks?

A very mysterious photo! Love the difference between your view of the theater and Hope's!

Tanya - that's what I like about CDP - you get to see each person's interpretation and can see that there are so many different ways to view and experience the same thing.

My kind of image. The part can be be far more striking than the whole. A study in use of a block colour aswell on textures. Lve the swoosh of the rail against the angled backdrop. More please.

I agree with Tanya and B. Really nice image.

Hope the night shift situation is sorted or nearly sorted :)

thanks, everyone. I'm at work right now, still lots of 12 hour days; have scheduled more theatre pics while I tread water here. Hope I'll get to visit some of you this weekend.
