Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

“Find a subject and instead of taking a picture from in front of, at an angle, to the side, or from behind, take it directly from above!” —WordPress Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge

I took this photo in Ft Point looking down a flight of a spiral stone stairs. Enjoy.

      That’s what I hear these days. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.

    I did a staircase, too, but it has a completely different look and feel from your shot. I very much like the stones in this picture. The picture on your header would work, too, but you wouldn’t catch me up there!

      Hello Janet,

      I looked at your staircase photo and like it. I did not even consider the header photo until you and another person mentioned it.

      Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and comment.

    The colors in this are wonderful, someone else said it felt like a seashell that is it exactly.

      Thank you, Tina. I checked your photo blog and like it a lot.

      I was just looking at the Visual theme and considering switching to it for my photo blog. How do you like it so far?

    nothing compares to the views you had, while balancing over the Golden Gate Bridge cables …

    I love the colors. Usually stairs are gray or some other boring color. Nicely shot 🙂

      Too bad it wasn’t raining, then it really would look like that!
