Ghosts on the Stairs

A shot from the Musée Nissim de Camondo in Rue de Monceau, Paris. It was the private home of a Parisian banker who was a passionate collector of French furniture and art objects from the eighteenth century. This is one of the staircases. I like the shape of the stairs but felt I needed something more in the image. Visitors were wandering up and down the stairs and so I support my camera on the handrail at the top of the stairs and waiting for people to fill the gaps. I tried various shutter speeds and decide that 1/2s was going to give me the right amount of blur. I really wanted two people in the appropriate places but had to shoot them individually and combine them in Photoshop.
