Challenge #5: Steps and Stairs
Thanks to HopsSkipsandJumps I learned about these regular photo challenges, and I felt the urge to climb aboard the photo fun.
My first offerings, as we’re still in Lockdown, are some ‘blasts from the past’:
Aldeburgh, Suffolk, England.
Imposing, Grade 1 listed Tudor Moot Hall stands on the corner of Market Cross Place, facing the sea. In late 2019 it underwent extensive refurbishment and now serves as the Aldeburgh Museum.
Limonos Monastery, Filia, Lesvos
Ancient and modern harmoniously blend, in this vibrant house of Greek religion.
Moel y Chi Farm, Gwynedd, Wales
Inviting, foreboding – these rustic steps were too perfect not to capture.
St Mary of Charity, Faversham, Kent, England
Battle Abbey, Battle, East Sussex, England
The steps and stairs that have intrigued me are those that display conspicuous wealth: are external to a building, or have decorative features that are excessive to their usefulness. At the other extreme are those that belie what is within the building. I guess I like contrasts, and objects that suggest an intriguing backstory.
The inspiration for the weekly challenges come from #challengeyourcamera on the wonderful http://buddhawalksintoawinebar.blog/ Blog Site.
I hope you have enjoyed my trawl through images from the past. Take a look at Dr B’s site – and join the fun. Take care.
