Black & White Sunday: Steps and Stairs

Well, no prizes for guessing where I took these! Perfect for Paula’s challenge today!

Some decrepit stairs that have seen better days:

Lovely old wrought ironwork rather clashes with the graffiti-like painting on the walls and steps:

  1. The electrical wiring in that stairwell looks very dodgy indeed.
    Theme nailed as usual, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Now, how did I know that these thighs belong to Cuba 😀 The captures are terrific, mate 🙂 Happy Easter, Sue!

    Nice photos, Sue. If those stairs could only talk….

  5. Very nice Sue. And your one of the tattoo stairs is excellent – I didn’t succeed!

  6. I was sure that first image was your house, Sue! 🙂 🙂 It’s a beauty. Happy Sunday! Just survived the flying visit from the offspring. Phew! 🙂

  7. Both great shots Sue. Lovely wrought-iron.

  8. Lovely shots. The contrast in the second photo between the ornate ironwork and the graffiti is almost overwhelming. How long were you in Cuba for? Independent travel or a tour?

  9. Wonderful captures Sue – I cannot imagine how gaudy this must look in color. Excellent choice doing them in B&W!

  10. Much as I’d like to see the stairs without the graffiti, it looks very striking with it!

  11. Must have been a struggle to decide between “one” and “steps and stairs”, but you made the sacrifice! Great shots and a sense of the stories of the two climbers. You were so photographically busy in Cuba. I want to see the gaudy colour sometime, although b&w is great.

  12. Superb shots both Sue. And brilliant editing. We have no dearth of dodgy electrics around here either 🙂

  13. Great photos. I particularly love the last one of them. The winding staircase, the decay the person being watched by the mural painting – it comes beautifully together. And, yes, is very Cuban.

  14. Interesting staircases. They make me want to ascend.

  15. Just brilliant!!!! The image with the women … super brilliant.
