Near Sacre Coeur, yes? Hiked those steps... got cramps in my thighs! This was the day after I hiked a bunch of stairs in the Montparnasse building. Lovely view here - great touch with the light and detail.

Love the light posts, I wish I could see a bit more of that street below, the car is a dark imposing blotch, but nevermind, I still want to walk down the steps.

08/23/2011 04:58:04 PM
I almost get the sense of tumbling down the stairs, what a great location! Beautiful processing.

Very nice. Looks like the setting for a movie. The lampposts are what make it for me. Terrific tones of grey.

The sharp/gritty processing suits the scene very well. Wonderful composition playing the verticals. I really like this.
