Stairs

The staircase in the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art – Ellis Williams Architects, is statisfyingly industrial with its embossed and perforated sheet steel. The only colour – a single wall on each landing painted in an identifying colour.

The entrance has unpainted rusting cladding.

Dull December weather in Canvey Island, Essex but this rust patterned concrete flood defence and steps is a pleasing arrangement of stripes and angles.

Reflections and shadows –  blue to turns green and pink picking up reflected colours from the water and the deck – which is pink in the shade but almost orange in full sun. The canal at the Hepworth Wakefield.

Pink flourescent lighting in the cafe at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead looked particularly good on the white beard.
