2006 LondonStairs 

Double helix reflection, London 2006

It seems there is nowhere in central London these days that you can point a camera and not have an ugly yellow crane in your shot:  everything is being renovated or rebuilt.  But to rebuild, you first need to break down.  This beautiful spiral staircase on Cheapside was visible only for a few short months after they had broken down the building that hid it, and before they built its replacement.  Now the staircase and its reflection are hidden once again but live on in my memory – and in this photo.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister.

There are many ways to looks at a city and it can be beautiful and not all concrete and highrises.

Seems to be a worldwide disease of adding concrete to the world! The spiral staircase is beautiful though…& didn’t deserve to be hidden! At least it lives in your memory…& now mine!

this makes me think of the song… Stairway to Heaven.
