  1. What an amazing picture of something we probably walk by every day and don’t notice!! You have the eye!! 🙂


    • At first I titled this photo “Staircase.” But then I thought, “That thing must have a name.” So I poked around Google Images till I figured it out. Kind of fun knowing what the curlicue spiral thing at the end of the handrail is actually called.
