a-z archive: s! challenge (stairway)

Tuesday, May 8:  This week’s topic for Frizztext’s A-Z Archive Tuesday’s photo challenge is the letter “S”: introduce one photo of your own archive with a “S” keyword for example SAILSHIP or swords, shades or sunflowers, stealth bombers or saxophones, seagulls or skateboards, spare-ribs or stairways, storks or seals, siesta or sadness, silence or snow patrols etc.

Here is mine:  Stairway.  This was taken in Kyoto, Japan at Eikan-do, with its interesting architecture, artwork, and beautiful gardens, including sand gardens.

"Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life." ~ Ralph Ransom

I took off my shoes and walked in my socks on the smooth wood walkways and balconies, up and down curved staircases.  I climbed the steep stairs to the Taho-to pagoda and saw a grand view of Kyoto.  Gardeners were working in the gardens, pruning, planting, perfecting them.  On one path, I came upon a little pond with a wooden bridge to a tiny shrine.  Ducks circled in the pond and from there I could see the pagoda nestled in the mountain above.

To read about my trip to Kyoto, please visit catbird in kyoto.  🙂
