  7. Great perspective...what did you do, climb up it? Can you imagine the amount of iron that was used to make all those stairways on the old buildings. Classic!

  8. Wonderful intersection of lines and curves. (I mean the photo, not the photographer... though the photographer could be described in a similar way *wink*.)

    Wonderful enough to absolve you for not doing a true black & white of it all. (Though I do wonder how it would look...)

  13. Another excellent photo! I love staircases, too, and usually shoot every one I see! And every one is different...and they all lead someplace...where do they go? Maybe it's that unknown that's the attraction...

  21. I love ironwork. Hey, new header! Cool. How you doing with your back?

  22. Thanks for this..

    I detest all those white plastic fences going up all over Staten island... and the fake wood decks..

    No maintenance.. but very tacky (in my humble opinion only)..and they are costly too.. just no maintenance.

  24. You manage to make such ordinary things look fantastic. I wish i had your eye.

  25. What is it about ironwork that is so visually appealing? And not only that, looking at this picture I get a strong sense of how it would feel to touch it, or walk on those steps, their unyielding solidity. Would the gate be warm or cold to the touch? Would there be little bits of grit caught in the joints? Would the sun make interesting shadows, should it come out? Can you rattle that gate, or is it rock solid? Where do those stairs go? Does anybody ever sweep those stairs? Who? I love this picture, Daryl.
