A staircase spiralling down (or up) is a relatively frequent photographic theme, but what makes this stand out for me is the shape of the stairs, and the tones in the wood. I shot this in the castle in Tours (France) where my wife has her paintings exhibited. My 36th photograph to reach Flickr Explore, the 500 most interesting shots of the day.
