I love outside stairs. I feel like I am either driving or are too focused to get to where I'm going when I come across them however. Pretty much twice a week, when I leave my favorite film processing lab in Seattle Panda Lab, Inc., I drive by these stairs. As with some of my earlier photographs, I thought about how one must seize the opportunity when it's there and not wait.

Also, I love music. Soul, R&B, jazz, and blues can get me through just about any day. When I made this photograph, this is the song that came into mind, which reminded me of my Dad spinning the turntables as we did our Saturday morning chores.
