Steps and Fences

Steps from all over the world......

1. 16

My good friend Cathy sent me some very unusual painted or colored steps, so I thought I would share these as a part of Theresa's Fences Thursday at the Run A Round Ranch.  Does the handrail count as a fence?



These tiled stairs run up a total of 163 steps at 16th and Moraga Street in San Francisco. Over 300 neighborhoods joined in to create the spectacle, leading to an absolutely beautiful result.












In Valparaiso, Chile, you can walk up a flight of piano-like stairs. It’s too bad you can't play a tune too, sort of like Tom Hanks in BIG.

Wuppertal, Germany is home to a set of 112 steps that are known as the Holsteiner Stairs. With the wide array of bright colors, its almost like walking on a rainbow. The stairs also feature a collection of powerful German words painted on them, which translate to English phrases like, to forgive, innocence cause, and to laugh.

This historic staircase in Italy was constructed in 1608 and is made up of many ceramic tiles. Its been used as a backdrop for plenty of festivals and images are illustrated using thousands of flowers or candles.

Syrian students painted a fantastic pattern on the longest staircase in their town with some very vibrant colors. They hoped that the display would produce joyful feelings in the locals who were undergoing hardships.  But I think there are some really "hot" colors in this.  

The last one makes me dizzy!

My grandson Carson is with us sometimes when I am looking for fence pictures.  When he saw this fence riding with his mom, he made her stop the car so he could get this picture with her phone.  Thank you, Carson!

Thanks for hosting, Theresa and Brenda!   Linda Kay
