Great take on the theme.

Wow... haven't seen anyone else feature steps this week but have to admit that I had been thinking of doing so at one point, only to change my mind after spotting the photos that I eventually opted to use! ;)

I like pictures that spark the imagination, and that's exactly what this one does. You can't help but wonder what it's like at the top of the stairs. Since I'm originally from Illinois, and have been on the river at Alton many times, I have a pretty good idea what's up there, but I still wonder. :0) Nice job.

This hunt was tough!
Perfect find.

Great shot... you have sparked the imagination!

What a beautiful picture! Someone else already said that this one sparks the imagination, and he was right. I´ve never been up these stairs but really wonder what´s up there.

This is great! I love stairways of any kind because I'm also a Hitchcock fan. I also like the shadows the trees create on the stairs. You've created the first mysterious take on the theme I've seen this week.


Stop by and see my if you have a chance.

I bet it is even prettier right after a rain.

I love the chipped stairs! They have had many years of use and probably many stories to tell.

great photo. I've been there before.

tara @ kidz said...

Amazing photo as always!

I'm in a photography class AND a photoshop class so I can attempt to be as cool as you!

Lana said...

Oooh, nice! I'd love to see what's on the other side of the stairs too!

MyMaracas said...

I love the perspective, and how it makes me long to go into the picture and see what's beyond. Beautiful!

alejna said...

Beautiful shot! I'm quite partial to stairs in general. The sun dappling and chips really add something, too.''

Thanks for visiting my entry!

Angela said...

Nice! Really makes you want to go there. Thanks for visiting and happy hunting!

stan said...

I always look forward to the views on top of lookout points - which unfortunately are few and far here. Have a great wkend!

Irene said...

WOW! That's interesting interpretation of the theme. Thanks for coming! Take care!

philos said...

This set of stairs looks like one that will lead to an adventure... I sure would love to go up there one day. :)

PowersTwinB said...

jmb said...

A simple but very effective photo and perfect for this week's theme.

Thanks for visiting and happy weekend.

Lew said...

Nice subject for the theme! I also like the view from the top - it looks like you can stay dry up there when the Mississippi floods.

Marites said...

stairs!! I like stairs especially the ones outdoors that i've never been to. :)

tommie said...

Love the shadows on these steps!

Thanks for visiting my hunt.

A. said...

I love the perspective! Yes, your steps aren't as chipped as mine, but they are probably younger. :)

Carla said...

I can see a lot of activity on these! The coming, the going, the playing...

Easy Dessert said...
