Escalier

After just under a week's respite, here we are back at the public library. This is the staircase of the book lending department. Oh... and there's a new blog! My artsy mostly black and white Versailles! This way! (Note to VP: not for you!)
-------------------------------------------
Après quelques jours de trêve, nous voici de retour à la bibliothèque municipale principale avec l'escalier qui mène au prêt des livres. Ah... et il y a un nouveau blog ! Mon Versailles un peu artistico-noir et blanc. Par ici !

I love the wrought iron and lines of the staircase

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

I love this! Great Swedish colors, too! So well composed!

Great colors for the escalier, as well as the railing!

The blue and yellow make this staircase wonderful, but I'm sure I'll enjoy your black and white Versailles photos, too.

The more I see the more I like waht a beautiful Library!

Jack said...

Very pretty. Is it really yellow, or is that a result of the lighting?

T. Becque said...

Fabulous in color and repetition!

Randy said...

All you need is a woman in a Red dress to walk down the stairs!

Is this up the down staircase? Love the gold and blue. MB

Beautiful! A stark contrast to the plain, functional library in Bellingham...

A very stylish staircase especially for a public library.

Gunn said...

Just like Jacob and Lois Anne, my first thought...
"Looks very Swedish" In Norway we always say that with blue and yellow..... Anyway, it looks stylish and I like the way you have composed the shot.

Birdman said...

Wonderful composition. Love it.

Olivier said...

descend pas trop vite, cela peut te donner le tournis ;))

Francisca said...

Fabulous shapes and patterns in this staircase shot! And now I'll skip on over to your new blog, where I am sure NOT to find VP! :-D

VP said...

Sorry, definitely not!

Lovely colours on that staircase! You came to visit and could not find my post. I have moved so it can know be seen! So sorry!

Retour au bleu versaillais et aux courbes royales. J'aime bien l'angle choisi, il donne envie de glisser à cheval sur la rampe comme quand on etait petit!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Fantastic photo. Both the composition and the color.

Cezar and Léia said...

Very modern, I like the contrast blue and yellow and the angle of this shot is WONDERFUL!

Artistic staircase area!

I will check out your new blog. . .

Woody said...

Has it been that long? Damn, even the staircases are extraordinary! I'll be jumping over the the new digs momentarily. Between the small greenhouse I'm building for my wife and the nice weather today, I'm **way** behind on my blog visits (but I did get out for some photos)

Rhumatisants, s'abstenir.

Did you actually walk up these stairs to take this photo? Wow! I am impressed! Exquisite!

SRQ said...

Beautiful colors and composition. What a staircase! Off to check out your new blog!

This is a beautiful shot of a gorgeous stairway. I'm sorry to have neglected my blog reading lately. I have missed some lovely posts.

Artistique ta photo, plus le rendu des couleurs, escalier est très beau.

paulboo said...

Lovely :) WIsh our library was like this....!

Becky said...

What?!? Another marvelous blog to follow?!? Oh how shall I EVER get anything done?!? Sigh...

I really like the blue in the stairway. I like it so much more than the red Americans like to use, and it looks more regal, in my opinion.
