Stairwells are strange places especially when you live in a flat. This is an area that you must walk through everyday and share with others yet is not your own. In my block people have but plants on their floors to try and brighten up the monotonous feeling when walking up and down the stairs.

This is the staircase to my friends block. Their apartment completely contrasts this run down and dark stairwell. I love the feeling of these stairs as they are quite old and there is a feeling of history in the air, yet at the same time they are imposing, due to there narrow width and lighting.
