Path to Glory

This was shot in midday sun, which while not always the photographer's best friend, was perfect for picking up the repeating horizontal surfaces. After processing the image, I liked the effect of the lower half of the flight being bathed with a slightly mysterious light and was instantly reminded of the Biblical account of Jacob's dream of the angels on the ladder or stairway reaching to Heaven. In a more transient and earthbound sense, the title is still appropriate as this flight leads to the stage in the Roma Street Parklands.

I very much enjoy looking at this image and suggest that your foray into symbolism has been a success. Take a deceptively simple pattern, add some symmetry, throw in a mild copper tone mixed with dash of harsh light and ta-dah! A photographic synergism that imbues an image with that most desirable of attributes, (the worth of a second look).
