The original for Taking the Stairs (9-21-10 10033v3) is years old but just re-worked today. It's the sort of shot I used to take many more of. I'm still intrigued by the contrast and shadows between growing things and architecture. And often stop to stare at them on the many outside staircases we have on the grounds of the retirement community I live in. I just haven't pulled out my camera in a long time to snap a pic of them. I'm usually hobbling my way home with a backpack full of shopping when the shadows are the most interesting (late afternoon) and just not up to it. Mostly because I know I find it so hard to take only one shot. (Once I start, I keep going. Trying this angle and that, this framing of that section and this. Then see something else a few yards on ...) However, I suspect having worked on this pic today I've really stirred up that interest and will probably be taking some new architecture/shadows/plants pix soon.
