Carla- Back to back beautiful and amazing captures of these stairs. Gorgeous colos, fasinating lines that curve and run both vertically and horizonally. This is exceptional work with thrilling pov's. EOD entries that I think are winners. They are perfect in lighting, clarity, and fasinating designs.
Phenominal work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care.
