    It's a staircase painted in a rainbow of colors! Look closely and you'll also notice that each of the 112 stairs, painted by German artist Horst Glasker, also has a stenciled word on them that describes the relationships between human beings. Included are words like love, seduce, sympathy, dance, and passion. The public artwork, in Wuppertal, Germany, is called Scala (“staircase” in Italian) and was listed as one of the World's Coolest Staircases by Travel+Leisure. Arte Callejero / Street Art

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.
