Here is a diversion from #Occupy and the #Paterno Penn State thing, into the arts. I hope you enjoy it.

Mountain Laurel Staircase 2

My favorite staircase using mountain Laurel in a very free-flowing and natural way.

Different staircase

I still have a few more City Hall staircase shots to post, but I thought this one might be a nice change of pace.

This is the view up the staircase at the old Express offices at 120 Fleet Street – unfortunately you weren’t allowed up them, or even much room to take photos at the bottom.

I played around with HDR versions for ages then just gave up and settled on this one, which is straight out of the camera with just an exposure boost to lighten it up.

Phil of Ottawa’s staircase:

Queen's Staircase

Queen’s Staircase

Fountain in Queen’s Staircase, in Nassau, Bahamas. The staircase is located at the end of a limestone canyon, the walls of which are covered in vines and moss. It’s a delightfully cool place in every sense of the word.
