Staircases From Around The World

Sometimes a staircase is just a way to get you where you need to go. But staircases can also be pieces of art, archaeology and places to meet.

How about climbing a stairway to nowhere in a surrealist sculpture garden built in the Mexican jungle by an eccentric Englishman

Cascading down the sides of one of India’s oldest and deepest step-wells, Chanda Baodi, are steep stairs you’ll have to navigate with care.

Most who travel to Rome will at some point walk by and perhaps even sit and watch the world go by on the Spanish Steps.
This post was inspired by a piece in Travel & Leisure on the World’s Coolest Staircases in which the image of Las Pozas above was featured.

UK Bound

I’m spending the next few weeks in the UK. My mother is from Wales and I’ll be visiting and staying with family and friends in North Wales and surrounds. This trip is long overdue.

Naturally photography is on the agenda. In addition to travel photography I plan to take images that depict everyday British lifestyle. The goal of the latter is to take  photographs that immediately make you think  “Britishness.”
When you think of Great Britain what images come to mind?

Published Photographs: Seoul Edition

Ancient palaces, sprawling markets, modern and ancient culture, excellent infrastructure, and not overcrowded relative to other large metropolises in Asia are some of the reasons Seoul, South Korea is an appealing destination. It’s also one of world’s greenest cities.

The above photographs have been published in a variety of magazines and books.
