The Stairs Lead To... by taffy

The Stairs Lead To...

Actually, they lead to one of the nicer shops that we came across. Site of purchase of a few gifts on our last day, showing great restraint as it was just down from our rental apartment in Lastarria (very chic neighborhood of restaurants, markets, and some shops). I tried to take this photo earlier, but had the bad luck to encounter someone standing there who didn't want to move or have his photo taken. I lucked out this last day when Jim and I did a little last minute shopping before heading to the airport.

A huge thank you for commenting and fav'ing which put my geyser photo at #1. This is an amazing way to end Year 2 and I'm so grateful! Walking on clouds....
Love the composition and the emphasized contrasts in this capture. Very dramatic.

Amazing shot Taffy. It is very annoying when propel won't move.
And congrats on the number 1 spot in the TT. It will be one of my goals to get a shot into the TT next year.

Beautiful capture. Has a Titanic feeling to it. One last dance? Merry Christmas by the way....a little late, but still with the same meaning. :)
