Art I Want: Paris Staircase, Down View

I've been watching the show Castle and in the background of Castle's office, a large picture hangs. It's amazing. I'm scared of heights but I think if I could stare at that picture long enough, I could overcome. In the meantime, it's my desktop photo. (Click photos to enlarge.)

  1. You're very observant. I've never noticed this. I'll look out for it next time I watch.

  4. Hi, Clarissa,

    Great shot. I love staircases like this. They don't create staircases like that anymore.

    I don't know this show but the view from the top of the staircase is just dizzying!!!!

    But I know you will overcome this fear!!!! Good luck!!!

  7. It makes me a little dizzy to look at it. I'm sure it's lovely but what if I had to walk that up to my condo or apartment every day? Yikes.

  18. It is beautiful. I've seen similar ones that spiral. They look more nauseating. The square shape breaks up the spin. I like that.

  21. I have no idea what Castle is, but I love this staircase. When I lived in Poland, my flat was up a staircase like this!

  22. Wow, this is a cool picture!

    It would make a brilliant cover for the right kind of book.

  27. Very cool photo! I used to try to take pictures like this when I was in college. None ever turned out this nicely, though :)

  28. Not seen the series, but I do know that at the Burrow, we had done a drabble based on a picture very similar to that a couple of years back.

If you don't have anything nice to say, say it anyway.
