Tulip Stairs, Greenwich, England The Queen’s House in Greenwich features the first geometric self-supporting spiral staircase in Great Britain—commissioned back in 1616. The intricate flowers in the wrought-iron balustrade inspired the name Tulip Stairs (although, technically, the stylized blossoms are said to be fleurs-de-lis). In 1966, the Tulip Stairs were the site of Reverend R. W. Hardy’s ghost photograph, which shows a shrouded figure ascending the stair case Spirals Staircases, Spirals Stairs, The Queens, Queens Of England, Into The Blue, Queens House, England Uk, Spiral Staircases, Tulip Stairs

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.
