Tuesday Transformations

Although these are the same stairs, they are quite different photos. I guess the second had to be a closer shot to pick up the detail.


Tiled steps, 16th Avenue, San Francisco (no credit given).





This house is amazing. How can it not be a three dimensional work?  It reminds me of how buildings are put together on the steep hills of Lisbon and Porto. Poznan, Poland by Waldemar Wylegalski.





Starling, Berlin, Germany by Nika Kramer.

  1. Absolutely stunning. I don't know which I like best today. Thank you.
    Those stairs look like quite a work-out though. Beyond me I suspect.

  2. I'll just sit at the top, or sit at the bottom of the stairs and watch others descend and climb. It would take me, not a month of Sundays, but a year of Sundays to conquer those! :)

    1. Lee, better to sit at the top where you have a better chance of seeing melting people.

    1. Blogoratti, I think to paint large should not be underestimated. They are very good.

  5. Nice pictures ! If you like to climb steps come to Waterloo and go up the Lion mound it's "only" 253 steps !!

    1. Gosia, is there a lift? I did do 242 steps about three years ago but there was plenty to photograph as we went up, so lots of stops.

    2. 253 steps? That's less than a hundred if you do it in three stages, you know, climb 100, stop and take photos, climb another 100, stop and take photos, then climb the last 53 easy, she says, knowing she will never have to do this :)

  6. The three dimensional work is so clever!!! We know how it was done, but even then, we have to look VERY closely at the details.

    1. Hels, for me it takes more. My eyes deceive me.

  7. I love that second building transformation. The explanation for the stairs is easy: in the first shot we're looking DOWN the stairs, in the second shot, we're looking UP the stairs and the tiles are on the risers.

  9. That same stairs, really? I do love the colored tiles in the second photo! That does not look real, the 3D building, looks like a painting. It's a painting isn't it?

    1. Yes Strayer. I can tell by the handrails. No, I don't think it is a painting. These are works of art by very clever people who can paint to make things look like 3d.
