Photographer's Note

This is the Cascade, a very long staircase in Yerevan, capital of Armenia.

It was originally built in the early 1970's to commemorate 50 years of Soviet Armenia. However, it was left half finished, ironically symbolizing decades of Soviet neglect, until 2001 when a private philanthropist invested a considerable amount of money in repairing and beautifying the monument.

Now the Cascade is sometimes the stage for outdoor concerts, there is an art gallery inside and it is supposed to be a popular gathering place in the evenings.
