Just like Life ...
And This Life is Mine.
Simplicity is the glory of expression.
~ Walt Whitman
What is simpler than a
Vertically constructed bridge to the top of there?
Stairs... stairway... staircase... stairwell...
What will you find
At the top of the stairs?
In Bisbee, Arizona
In Carlsbad, California
In Ojai, California
And again in Bisbee, Arizona
Fascinating and gorgeous, impractical and necessary, small and large, concrete and carpeted, overgrown and swept, inside and outside, railed and unrailed, creaky and silent...
In Kotor, Montenegro
I love stairs not only because an incomparable number of possibilities await at the top of the stairs, but because they suggest both zeal and repose.
On a back porch in Arizona
In a church in Barcelona
Or a church in Puerto Rico
Up and down, over and across, around and about...
Forgotten in Carmel, California
My great grandparents had stairs like these (albeit a bit taller and wider) and we children used to run to the top and slide all the way down on our bums.
Past the grandfather clock, knocking our shoes along the rails, and
Squealing all the way down.
A fascination like this has gotta start somewhere.
It's like a Stairway to Heaven ... thank you Led Zeppelin!
In Grenada, outside a church
In the Napa Valley, California
On the Emerald Princess
And in Amsterdam, Netherlands
I'll find them anywhere and photograph them like crazy.
To me a staircase means endless possibility and I'm enamored!
To the top, To the top, To the top of the stairs with you!
