So, on my recent trip I realized something about myself.
I love texture, and contrast.. and how the light plays with stairs and texture.
So, here is a small sampling of the perspective I had.
The emperor would walk along this for a foot massage.
Ok, so, this isn’t exactly steps, but they look like it..
These are the steps up to the top of the Great Wall where we were.
These are mini steps that are clearly uneven.
These steps were on the Great Wall and lead up to one of the look out towers.
More mini steps on the Great Wall
The Great Wall’s… Wall..
The Ceiling of one of the lookout towers on the Great Wall
A path along the base of a small portion of the Great Wall
Steps at the Temple of Heaven.
These were mini steps at the Summer Palace
While the entire staircase is super long, the steps were still mini in height….
These were neat cause they were uneven, minis, and had the foot massage edging.
This was used to wrap a bunch of the trees at the Summer Palace..
There is just something about contrasting texture that intrigues me.. and yes, I touched this..
Ok, not stairs, but still an interesting depth perception..
Steps up into the Summer Palace.
These were regularly sized steps at the Summer Palace
More combo steps at the Summer Palace..
This was a brick wall at the Olympic Park.
This is my favorite. The texture and composition just fascinates me, especially with the lighting.
