I found these Red Stairs while walking along the River Walk in San Antonio early one morning - I can only imagine what affect seeing these stairs has on people after they have enjoyed a few adult beverages:-)

Great isolaton of this enigmatic staircase, Jeff. I walked back and forth and forth and back on that Riverwalk last summer, and never took note of these stairs...perhaps it was just too hot and sticky on that long weekend.

A lot of impact on this shot, Jeff. Man, those red lines hit hard (I'm having an adult coffee). I like how you included the turn and the additional patterns of the rails. Very cool, er, hot, shot. Looks like the steps are on fire.

Jeff- You have such a talented eye to see things like this and then to talent to make them stand out as a picture. Love the red lines, the way you lead us up the stairs. Simple in design, yet it holds our attention. Amazing work my friend.
Have a great day, do take care.

I scrolled up and down and up and down looking at the stairs until I felt sick.

I have to leave now...(Where's that bucket?)

HA! JJ! (Just joking!) But I did do that and I can safely say I agree with you. Look for marks at the bottom like Doug suggested! You might find some!

LOVE your POV here. Killer image!
