Rome: staircase

That’s one fine photo.
Here’s my version, from Sorano Sorano (in color) from 2002’s photo workshop. Italy is a great place to take pictures.

For me this captures a lot of the mood today–from the dark into light but only with a lot of steps ahead.

The shift in the angle of the treads in addition to the shift from dark to light makes for a lot of interest in a “simple’ shot. Very nice. I think this must be one of a handful of shots I have containing stairs. Must do better.

“Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble [the metaphorical, historical kind, I think],
Ancient footprints are everywhere.
You could almost think you was seein’ double,
On a cold dark night on the Spanish Stairs. . . “

— from “When I Paint My Masterpiece” by The Band

This photo evoked a weird train of associations for me, mostly from around the age of twenty or so (five decades ago, give or take). To make short work of it: Mostly about music, art, and dreams.
