I want to share this photo of the Westminster Arcades in Harrogate/Yorkshire...built some 150 years ago :)

I love old buildings that have shops etc. inside them, but keep the feel of the old building...

Like the wooden escalators in Macy's

I would have exposed on the skylight, then on the stairs and merged the two for perfect, all round exposure... much like this (http://www.flashkit.com/board/showpost.php?p=3441528&postcount=20) image by Ctanter ;)

Rob..I wanted to give it a mystic effect as I could hear the breath of the centuries...
I have been living in England in the early 70's and black walls and fog and smell caused by the open fires is what I associate with England.
I tried to put all this into the photo...maybe I have overdone something here.
Appreciate your comment though :)

I agree with you about the escalators at Macy's...any idea how to save their clattering wooden sound on a photo? :rolleyes:
