Stone Stairs

It's been a long time since I've posted a black and white photo, time to rectify that. These stone stair leads up to the entrance of Pizza Express, opposite the Town Hall. I haven't eaten there in quite a while but the food is good and the restaurant is really nice. I like the simple design of the railings. What do you think?

On so many levels "me likey." On a photographer's note the lines and form, the layers blah di blah, but purely as an aesthetic image it works splendidly. I really like these kind of railings that of another era. Instincts on the mono for this spot on. I bet that cast some great shadows.

i like the angle you took this from, and the b/w looks really cool on this!

I agree the two prior posters. The B&W is a good choice for this subject. Not only "old world" but these wonderful wrought iron bars and designs are very commonplace here in Mexico.

It was the railings that I first noticed. Love it!

Well snap, I posted stairs too today! Bit different to yours. I love the sweep of these and in particular the wrought iron railings in the foreground. I love the simple design. Less so, the curly ones on the right. Lovely shot and perfect in B and W.

Fancy pizza stairs! I agree with the bw comments.

This is a very nice perspective and I also like the railings.

I'm glad you chose B&W--it emphasizes the railings, and there are three different kinds just on this one stairway!

Perfection in black and white. The iron work in black compliments the white walls. Quite elegant!

Good choice for this shot, the B&W. And I love the angle of the stairs...very nice.
