    The church steps in the snow are especially pleasing.

    Love these! Rarely see a series on steps!

      For whatever reason I’ve photographed a lot of them.

    In his world we wait
    In his hands our fate
    Keep on climbing
    We shall see his gate
    In good time

    All those stairs reminded me of a Bruce Cockburn song

      Unfortunately, none of these steps take you to that particular gate.

    The ones by the electric tower would also look good in B&W. In fact since these images are essentially about shape, you could do them all in a high contrast monochrome and make a themed artistic series.

      That’s true. I ought to try a b/w conversion on that one in particular.

    Funny, I was just perusing a set of granite steps on the side of my colonial era office yesterday. There are at least 10 steps leading up to the building’s side entrance, leading to a granite stoop. At different times of day the shadows from the metal grates leave interesting compositions. I have photographed it several times over the years, probably not enough…..

      I love subjects like that, ones you can keep photographing in new and interesting ways.

    Well done! I love these compositions. Now you have inspired me to look for steps and shadows. We tend to have more wood steps here in MS.

      I am inspired by Katie Yang’s compositions — it led me to create a series of these. More to come!
