Scala del Bovolo by stefangrosjean Scala del Bovolo by stefangrosjean
This is the spiral staircase of the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo in Venice, Italy, lit by the morning sun. I had to climb on a fence to get this photo because what you don't see on this picture is how close the walls from the surounding buildings stand on all sides. You always feel like you want to step further back to take in the whole staircase at once but you're already pressing your back at the wall of another house. There's almost not enough room to fully admire this 500 year old marvel of architecture.

Out of all the pictures I have seen of Venice, I don't believe I have ever seen this building.  Thank you for all the trouble you went to to get this shot!

Mate, like just about everybody else who follows you, I follow you for the magnificently beautiful women you photograph supremely well. 

And now you've started adding my second love, fine architecture. Brilliant. Thanks. Great work here.

Now THAT, that my friends is a spiral staircase. Very impressive. How did that possibly survive 500 years of Italian earthquakes?

I was hoping to look closely and see Eugenia Dior there. She's the architecture I appreciate the most.
