You can look at these steps and imagine how many thousands of people have trekked up and down them. Fine shot and an interesting perspective. Well done with that bright background lurking at the top of the steps.

Dorothy Michaels: No, just Dorothy. Alan's always Alan, Tom's always Tom and John's always John. I have a name too. It's Dorothy, capital D-O-R-O-T-H-Y.

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Taken from a good angle and so gives the image a good depth.

Oh I do like this - it makes me want to climb those ancient steps to see what is beyond. Just enough mystery to make it interesting.
Nice tones and textures.
Thank you for submitting it for the B & W Challenge Carlos - it will be a fine addition when the Challenge resumes shortly.
In the meantime it is on my waiting list with several other new images.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The angle is superb on this one Carlos, I agree with the others, well spotted, and a very good presentation. tigs=^..^=

Really like this composition. The angle brings a view that is not usually captured and yet, the light, railing, texture of the stonework comes through so very well. Great idea!

While visiting Fort Mackinac (pronounced mack-in-naw) on Michigan's Mackinac Island, I looked down an old and long set of wooden stairs to see how the middle of all of them dipped severely, worn down by foot traffic (in fact, it was so severe the steps were barricaded for public use to keep visitors from taking a tumble). In your image I see the same result, but, these are stone! It connotes not thousands of feet passing this way but millions. A minute but important and telling slice of history, Carlos.
