Staircase in Spanish Springs


I love staircases. I photograph most every staircase I find. I liked this one because of the graceful, curving lines and how the early evening light hits the upper portion of the buildings.

It leads to offices on the second floor of this building. It is to be found in the Spanish Springs hometown. I'll probably post more staircases in the future.

This looks like a very good start for a nice series.

Gunn White said...

This is very elegant and nice!
And so is the composition and light in the photo.
I look forward to see more photos of staircases!;-)

Intricate, marvelous staircase indeed! Did they film "Gone with the wind" on that staircase ...

Jacob said...

I don't know from Gone wit da wind, Safe Leif...I think someone once broke wind there once...

Daryl said...

Staircases, wrought iron .. love them all and take pix of them all the time too! This is a good example of both.

Scarlet: "Rhett, Rhett...Rhett, if you go where shall I go? What shall I do?"

Rhett: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
(Rhett breaks wind and exits stage left.)

Jacob said...

Hi Allison - You are toooo much! I laughed out loud. Didn't break wind, though!

Thanks. This is great

Have a wonderful day!

Leif Hagen said...

Yo, JMTI, if you have to break wind, go outside by your pool and pull weeds!

Jacob said...

Safe Leif! I was just outside in the blazing hot sun by the pool but not pulling weeds...I was cleaning the darn pool filter...the pool is finally starting to look decent again and all the chems are in balance, so there, too!

Just for that I'm gonna break wind and jump in!

Allison said...

That's one way to make a bubbling hot tub out of your pool!

Jacob said...

You know, Allison, I am so glad you're helping Safe Leif find his way in life, because I think you are more than a match for him!

Not only a bubbling hot tub, but would probably negate the chemical balance!

Leif Hagen said...

JMTI - Allison and I are having a fun time "ganging up" on you! We pick on the ones we like! Ha!

Jacob said...

Safe Leif and Allison - Bring it on! I'm tough. I can take it. Wait, I'll write more later; I've got to call my therapist!

Hi Jacob,

This were grand stairs. Very beautiful. And so many details. I noticed the small mosaics or stones in the steps. Very nice indeed.

Best regards
Asta
