this is a wonderful way to economize your space, should you have that style of staircase. plus, it evokes one of those awesome "beauty and the beast"-style library ladders -- or are those just the fantastical imaginings of my inner nine-year-old? suffice it to say, had i been in belle's shoes, i would never have made it to the west wing.
Inspiring photography. Each stair is lit from every angle, the stairs appear to be inside out, going up, and going down all at once. The color of the stairwell fades from a pigmented black to a soft blue. The photo's concept is simple, but the details make the image really striking.
