I Used to Be Among the Crowd You’re In With, originally uploaded by Thomas Hawk.

Today’s photo is of a staircase in the Mechanics Institute Library in San Francisco. The original poster notes that it is the oldest library on the West Coast, started in 1854.

I really love the swirl of the stairs/banister, and the almost wave-like optical illusion I feel when I look at this. And I love that it’s in black/white/grey; somehow, it’s perfect without any other colours.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
