This image was taken at an abandonded state hospital for the developmentally disabled.I came across this staircase and as I climbed it I was struck by how worn the stone treads were.Worn down a full inch in places.How many steps would that take?How many feet?How many times?This place was a home to many-probably all some knew as home.I felt honored to be able to photograph it.

Recently this image hit the 5000 plus views mark.Thank you all so much:)

    All of the photographs that you have taken from this home are fantastic, I would love to be able to photograph something like that. The history would be amazing and I am so happy that you are sharing it with us. Thank you!

    Incredible shot and you can definitely tell where the wearing has taken place, so much history in one small piece of this place that you have captured. Wonderful and humbling at the same time. Nice work. :)

    I do believe I would have felt deeply moved to capture this place in time and honor it in a photograph.
    Well done and nice commentary.
