This is a back staircase in the rundown Palacio Ferrer in Cienfuegos, Cuba. Built by sugar baron Jose Ferrer Sires, the Palacio housed one of the leading families of Cuba’s colonial sugar oligarchy in great style.

Today the dilapidated Palacio is a so-called cultural center, although the only evidence of culture I could see was a much worn piano, probably last tuned at about the time Fidel took power.

Exposure data: Nikon D300, 13mm, six exposures combined in Photoshop using masks and layers with exposure times between 20 seconds and 1/2 of a second, each exposure at f/22 andf ISO 100, tripod mounted.
