    It’s amazing how something as plain as an escalator can be so photogenic!

    Absolutely love the Lighthouse – the 360 degree view from the top is outstanding, even on a usual Glasgow day of weather!

    Fantastic!!! Love the color! Woohooo!!!!
    Funny thing about escalators. As I am going up on them, I am absolutely fine. No problem. However, when I step off, I am suddenly so dizzy, it takes a few seconds to gather my bearings. Weird, huh? And, never, ever happens in an elevator.

    Great photo!

  6. Why do the hand rests go at a different speed to the actual stairs?

    How do we know it’s not a down escalator and you’re not messing with our minds Jackie?

    Nice shot. I once spent several minutes trying to shoot the escalators in the Seattle Central Library. The results turned out to be unspectacular.

  8. Fantastic modern shot!
