This is the oldest image I´ve ever share here. After this trip, I decided to buy a serious camera. It was a nikon d200 at that time. This particular stairs with guy at the top was taken in Varanasi, India, in 2007 with a point and shoot Sony W5. I think I was very lucky!

Paco, I think you were lucky BECAUSE you had a P&S camera.  Such a large depth of field would have been impossible with a SERIOUS camera.

Jakov, yet another fine example of "scratch painting".  :)

Great idea Werner, here is wooden stair inside a metal and diesel engine workshop we visited during the NG event in Lofoten.

It's actually a very special image for me, until then the 50/1.2 was pretty much my main lens but that day I borrowed Bjørn's 35/1.4G and a seed was planted which slowly grew in the desire to buy one myself. It quickly became my number one lens and a fast 35mm has been my main lens ever since.

Thanks Thomas. It's a combination of reflection and illumination.  The whole building is designed as a ship, both external and interior. When entering these stairs it gives the feeling of 'landing' on the main deck on the way to check-out gates  ;)

The moving staircases were special when it opened in 1933.

Great image Paco. Varanasi in an wonderful place for street photography; one of the best in country actually, IMHO!! If you have more photos of Varanasi, would love to see those. I've been there twice when I was a kid.
While you were in Varanasi, I was in Miami with my P&S Canon S80. 1.5 years later I bought my first SLR D200.  :D

Apparently the handrail waves are "just loosely" synched with the stairs, so practically it would work.  :)

Dave, indeed the rail may not feel comfortable as a guide when you descend, but its steeper sections would work nicely as a grip when you ascend, especially for the people who need something to hold on to.

Wow, so much to say about this picture  ;D

The end of the set of stairs would tell you whether it's up or down. This is in the library in Maastricht.

Thanks for checking my picture.

Thank you, Paco and Bent!

The area was lit with the usual incandescent light.  The overall atmosphere of this room was nice, but I felt even a pleasant atmosphere would detract this attracting play of the banister and the shadow.  So, I decided to process the image as B&W.

Not so much a trompe l'oeil, but easily to be misinterpreted.
