This staircase inside London’s One Whitehall Place event venue is something of a technical engineering marvel. Each solid marble step has been inserted deep enough into the outside wall that it snakes around that no other support is necessary. There’s no columns holding it all up, no other support beneath the steps – the whole staircase just grows out of the wall. Amazing – although it took someone else pointing it out for me to notice!

There’s plenty shots of these steps out there, they’re fun to photograph, particularly from above, but I wanted to do something a little different and so I made this shot by zooming on a long exposure. I did a few, but this was my favourite.
