Maybe it's just an illusion, but I immediately thought that this a photo from standing on a walkway/street and facing two flights of outdoor stairs (maybe cement or stone or something?) where the walls of the stairs are the same design as the wall behind it...and the place where the hand rail would be is just smoothed cement painted white. Is this just me? I hope my definition makes sense, I don't know how else to describe what I'm looking at haha...
I actually considered it to be a set of overlapping metallic plates, with a rough texture worked in. Your description makes perfect sense Mine was influenced by the fact that I do a bit of metalwork in my spare time
some people like the composition and the shapes. you can see different things in such a simple picture, for example, i see two cliffs. its just the simplicity of the shapes that can make certain people think.
if all you see is a picture of the ground, thats fine, but i wish people would have at least a little faith in the people who choose DDs.
