As you know by now, I tend to shoot straight on at façades, but there are times when I approach – especially in Amsterdam – a stoop all decorated with pots of flowers and maybe even a little bench from which residents people watch on nice days and have to shoot that, too. The angle is one I sometimes have to force myself to notice, but in Amsterdam I find it’s yet another great angle to get the gist of a beautiful façade, while still getting the depth of the front “garden” and maybe even the size of the steps. Wondering why the steps matter? In Amsterdam the front staircase was, once upon a time, an indication of a family’s wealth and status in society. These images were painted in my favorite, the Waterlogue app.
