Arc de Triumph stairway looking down. This was a huge accomplishment. The first stairs in a long time. I got in the wrong door, thought it was the lift. Decided to just do it.

    Choosing features this week was exceedingly difficult because of the large number of what I believe are spectacular works of art. The range of subjects and styles ran the gamut and I was hard pressed. Congrats on beautiful work.

  • I am always pleased when anyone comments on or features this work. To me it is so “my Paris.” So much of Paris is in the small things. Thank you for the feature.

    Love the metal treads on the steps

  • By the time I got to the top, I was not sure how much I appreciated anything about them. But, what a view once there!
