Vertical orientation. Aerial view of negative from at least five floors up, of space between the floors. People carry on about their lives on the pieces of the various floors. Two people are visible; one presumably on the floor immediately below the photographer, one two floors down, perhaps walking with another person. The angles of the floors form chevrons pointing to the upper right.
