Those are eerie looking steps! The lighting and shaddows in the B/W give a big drama to the image. The alcoves give the feeling of age. Truely superb.

Well I've gotten to the age where I enjoy going down steps more than going up steps. :) LOL But don't get me wrong......these are very nice steps. :)

Let's see..I counted them, then I looked at the pic again and decided that you were, as I first suspected, speaking of the movie. Nicely composed and presented, Jan. :)

The steps sure look worn down. I thought the title had something to do with your age at first. lol There's a movie title by that name? The shot really makes the bridge and steps look very old. Beautiful job, Jan.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Great b/w shot - and a very spooky air about it. I am just going to bed - if I dream scary things about climbing and counting steps I shall know who to blame lol. I think it is the undisturbed leaves thatgive it the eerie look - as though no one has been that way for some time, except perhaps ghosties and ghoulies.

It isn't Vienna, but one look a this photo and I got a flashback of the old Joseph Cotton film, "The Third Man". You've captured the same feel of mystery and intrigue. Well done.
