Halfway down the stairs
is a stair
where i sit.
there isn’t any
other stair
quite like
it.
i’m not at the bottom,
i’m not at the top;
so this is the stair
where
I always
stop.

  1. Another great series with some really nice compositions, Jane. And of course, light and shadows 🙂

  2. Wonderful composition in both The Thinker and Take 2.

  3. Haven’t seen so many steps in one place. 🙂

  4. What a great series. It’s amazing the interesting scenes one finds when one is observant and thoughtful. We were in Sydney and Melbourne briefly and I tried to find time to do a little photography. I wished we had more time. Both are beautiful cities.

    • Hi Karen, We were fortunate to be there for three months so I had time to slow down and look. It’s hard to do when you are quickly passing through. Glad you were there– they are wonderful cities.

  5. Really liked them all–Take 2 is wonderful.

  6. Love this collection Jane. I’ll be looking around for interesting steps in my travels now

  7. Great stuff! Nice variety within the theme. The Parliament of Victoria has some nice steps, too. Did you get to take some shots of it when in Melbourne?

  8. wonderful shots…loving ‘the thinker’ & yoko ‘s stairs…great fun!!

  9. Beautiful and thought provoking – what are the people doing, thinking? What is up and down the stairs?

  10. Great post, Jane. Visually delightful. Liked the quotes too.

  11. Beautiful tones and great composition!
    Greetings, Ron.
