spiral staircase

When I was a child I used to love visiting people who had a spiral staircase.

 I thought it would be so fantastic to have one.

And now I do. 
It was in our house when we bought it 10 years ago.

It's actually not as exciting as I thought-but kids who visit us think it's quite special!

  1. Lovely shots of this. My grandmother used to have one with a great railing that I loved riding down.

  2. Very clever.
    So good to see a totally different perspective. Not that I would be comfortable standing in that spot :-)

  4. Lovely photo story. I had to look twice at your first photo, thinking it may have been manipulated, then I saw what it was. Love photos that make you look twice to "get-it".

  6. I really love your first shot - I had to come and look to see what it was. Spiral staircases are so hard to walk up - don't you think.

  7. We have one also, and they are wonderful indeed!
    I absolutely love the first photograph here Leanne.
    Truly so creative!

  10. Such creative shots of your staircase! I've always loved spiral staircases too....although walking up three flights of narrow spirals with heavy suitcases was not so much fun.

  11. I like them too - but mostly as fun things to photograph! It would seem they are something to admire but perhaps not live with? Love the shot of your feet looking down the spiral.

  12. Love your shots. I used to be terrified of spiral staircases!...not sure why. Love the shot of the banister.

  14. I love this post...especially that first image. Very cool with the shallow DOF. Spiral staircases are cool, until you have one-or have to clean one. I guess they're rather like bunk beds-sleeping on the "top" until you do it. Forget needing to use the facilities long about 2 a.m. Happy day to you.

  17. There is something very pleasing to the eye about them don't you think, they have a beauty that a normal staircase just doesn't have.
