A Sea of Stairs

Staircases are a fundamental and architectural element of building design.They take us from one floor to another, lead us down to the beach, or perch us at a higher altitude.Stairs can also be viewed as works of art.They tell a story all through out history, as well as ones life journeys.  When we travel by stairs we usually know where they are leading us. But when one is behind the lens of a camera,  depending on how the photographer decides to shoot that photo, a simple photo of a staircase can become somewhat of a mystery, making us often ask ourselves "where do these stairs lead"?  These beautiful photographs do just that.

This color blue is amazing
