‘Tbilisi - Stairway to …’
Sorry no, this stairway doesn’t lead to heaven.
It’s one of the stairways leading to the Peace Bridge and, admit it, the name of this bridge does sound 'heavenly'.
As I wrote in the note of my previous picture, the Peace Bridge was opened in 2010.
It’s a bow-shaped pedestrian bridge that connects the Old Town of Tbilisi at the west bank of the Mtkvari River with the Rike Park and the new district at the east bank.
It is a design of the Italian architect Michele De Lucchi.
The bridge has a wonderful curvy steel and glass canopy top and at night it is brightly illuminated.

uno sguardo in alto e uno scatto, semplice da dirsi, più difficile accorgersi che da questo semplice gesto può venirne fuori un bellissimo scatto.
Una bella interpretazione, il bel cielo ha aiutato molto con il suo colore e la sua luce, ma la composizione grafica è dovuta a un buon occhio.

Dag Paul, buurman op TE vandaag,
Opnieuw een mooi detail en een zeer goed gekozen hoek om deze foto te maken.
Deze foto is zeer compleet, mooie architectuur, maar ook veel diepte en perspectief door de lange en hoge trap.
Mooie kwaliteit foto Paul.
Heel goed samengesteld, zeker goed gepresenteerd.

Good morning Paul,
Closer view on the Peace-Bridge in town, with fine glass & iron-structure elements shown in contrast to blue sky.
Excelent sharp details.

a mio parere questa è ancor più bella della precdente avente per oggetto lo steso ponte, sia perchè il taglio verticale dà una particolare imponenza alla struttura metallica ed anche per la bella prospettiva che si viene a creare con le scale che salgono verso il cielo senza che la struttura sovrastante risulti fastidiosa.
Una eccellente composizione ricca di nitidezza e con contrasto e colori ben curati che offre un ottimo risalto a questa bella struttura.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Another great view of this interesting bridge, with the stairs leading our eyes to it! Excellent framing, light and colors! Wonderful composition!

wonderfully enticing composition and shot of this fascinating modern construction. Love the lines and symmetry here and you have captured it superbly. Excellent!
Have a good week - Brian.

Hello Paul - This shot, together with your previous post make a super combination and presentation of this arresting piece of architecture. Here you focus on the strong lines and sweeping curves of the structure. Crisp, clean and well managed, I love the close crop and punchy composition. TFS this unique construction. Warm regards rosemary
Schnappilic (9088) 2013-09-23 11:40
Wonderful modern architecture presented us in a interesting framing. I like the result!
adramad (30951) 2013-09-23 12:31
A stunning composition with these stairs that seem to go to .... the sky. The junction with the tube structure gives a beautiful graphics to the image, on the other hand has lights and shadows ideals.
Very good management of light and sharpness.
A nice range of colors, which make the image even more enjoyable.
Have a nice day.
ourania (18704) 2013-09-23 13:27
a wonderful play of perspectives, a very effective composition that starts with the symmetry of the stairway and then is enriched by a wild play of unpredictable patterns. This part of the bridge is presented superbly in your frame, it looks imposing and playful at the same time. I like very much the light and the colours, the bold definition of the structure and the subtlety of the reflections of the steps. A fine, creative approach, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Gigidusud (10302) 2013-09-23 15:09
Originale composition avec un grand impact graphique. Bravo!

I´m glad you´re continuing your series of this bridge!
Amazing and abstract looking structure.
I like your presentation of it-the steel "metallic" look of the bridge looks great against the blue sky and makes the scene even more expressive in its perception.
Have a nice day
lousat (64243) 2013-09-24 4:28
Hi Paul,a great capture very rich of geometries,lines and curves,and a great choice of point of view to create this imposing perspective,spectacular contrast whit the blue sky,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
batalay (33435) 2013-09-24 5:25
With the curing superstructure of the bridge as the backdrop, the stairs do invite climbing and exploring the edifice. You've chosen an excellent vantage point to present the scene.
dkmurphys (42567) 2013-09-24 7:48
Very nice pov from the base of this modern structure. It sure looks spectacular. Well taken, have a fine evening.
fabbs99 (11190) 2013-09-24 23:15
Another nice shot of the Peace Bridge.Very well done to capture the scene from an excellent pov.TFS.
Royaldevon (21517) 2013-09-25 13:51
A really exciting shot of modern architecture, where the shapes, curves and reflections work in complete harmony.
Your viewpoint gives a strong lead and ensures that the viewers notice the lovely shadows and highlights, another pleasing aspect of the photograph.
I'm sure when you took this that you were immediately satisfied, for it is one of those shots that you know has worked.
My warm regards,
Fis2 (77022) 2013-09-25 13:58
A very interesting construction.
I like POV and composition.
Excellent light and colors.

Different view from another angle, Ibn bridge. Construction and beautiful design, good job to better illustrate the details of bridge
abmdsudi (32515) 2013-09-25 21:23
Applaud your impressive ist class shooting angle, perspective and an interesting modern twist that just drags the eye into the image a scene you could never get bored of looking at on how the graphic curves and lines actually draw my eyes deep inside. Lighting is brilliantly full of rich colours, subtle shadows, crisp all round and a lovely settled composition. This has an extremely freshness to it, in feel as well as look. tat said, it works excellently and artistic. My congrats, TFS
mkamionka (27089) 2013-09-26 5:18
fantastic close up of this extraordinary bridge. I like the geometry of the composition -it does deserves another presentation. You have picked a great POV: the stairs are adding one more geometric element leading the eye to the bridge itself. Without the doubt the blue sky contributes here as well making a pleasant background.
Oceania (3245) 2013-09-26 7:26
Straight and curvy, steel and glass, it's very modern and slick. This is not normally people associating it with Europe. But it's very enjoyable from your picture.
macjake (45588) 2013-09-26 12:08
this connecting bridge was a great idea, its much better than taking a subway or a taxi, you get exercise and you get to see the city from excellent viewpoints too.
not to mention the fact its some pretty cool looking architecture to spice up the city.
reminds me of some of the architecture in Warsaw.
another cool shot of this heavenly bridge.
claudeD (27000) 2013-09-26 12:35
Very fine architecture picture from Tbilisi with an excellent composition and fine sharpness. You did an excellent fotojob here.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Waylim (23320) 2013-09-26 17:09
A stairways to peace...heaven is over rated. We don't even know if it existed :) Peace would be nice for all of us, especially those country in troubles.
Anyway, this is a really good shot with the stairs leading to the top with all the abstract shape canopy of the bridge. Excellent quality photo. Thx.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-09-26 20:01
Paul, stairway probably to a modern heaven...
fantastic shot anyway,the reflection on the sides and the angle used are to compliment!!great work!
danos (78134) 2013-09-26 23:36
nice the view as the presentation of this section of the stairway that of course don't lead-in to heaven.I like the view of the part of the Peace bridge above as the excellent light that enhance the details of it.
ChrisJ (91292) 2013-09-27 3:38
A superb upward pov using the dual sides of the stairs to get lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good density levels and graphism with superb sharpness and a pleasing color combination of blue and white. The arched upper bridge canopy nicely frames the stairs. Tfs!
jemaflor (74108) 2013-09-28 9:43
Intéressante architecture avec cet ensemble de lignes de courbes, le tout est présenté avec une superbe luminosité et un bon ciel bleu en fond, bon effet aussi de perspective avec cet escalator.
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-29 9:30
Another great shot of this most unusual bridge. Well composed and chosen POV that shows off the lines and the shapes to their best in this image.
mesutilgim (73062) 2013-09-29 12:29
Wonderfull architectorial capture with great effect.
Perfect pov and graphism.
TFS and best regards
Cricri (92249) 2013-09-29 22:47
Tout bon le cadrage, l'effet graphique, super original, futuriste bien rendu sur le fond bleu et une très bonne lumière
rbassin (13381) 2013-10-03 12:56
une très belle composition, d'une bon graphisme;
une architecture audacieuse bien mise en valeur.
serp2000 (33201) 2013-10-03 20:04
Sorry I don't read previous comments but this view reminds me heritage of Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona. The same brave ideas, the same amazing shapes. Good presentation of Tbilisi. Excellent report! TFS!
Greetings from Virginia!
emka (64182) 2013-10-03 23:17
Hi Paul, Amazing structure, a bit similar to the new bridge in Rome presented lately here by Romano. fantastic all these curves speciall when the white construction contrasts so beautifully with the blue sky. excellent presentation.
npecanhuk (56372) 2013-10-05 12:32
Very interesting structure!
Very attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format and, above all, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,
delpeoples (48660) 2013-10-10 14:13
You really do travel to some far-flung places. I rally like this modern architecture and your photo has brought out the best of the graphism and geometries. It is well-exposed and extremely well-composed. Beautiful work!
Have a lovely Evening
jacquest (16428) 2013-10-13 13:18
C'est une très belle architecture que tu nous présente dans ces trois photos du ce pont. J'aime bien celle-ci qui nous montre bien les courbes et dont la ligne droite de l'escalier amène l'oeil au ciel et permet d'y rêver. L'image est de très bonne qualité.
josepmarin (56489) 2013-10-16 4:14
an impeccable composition, by means of a good vertical framing, and the strong graphical effect of the elements, as the structure of the bridge and the stairway to heaven (like the song of Led Zeppelin).
The reached result is great, I like the beauty of the photo, and the quality of light and colours as well.
kiks (11601) 2013-11-16 9:51
Hi Paul, i always like organi shapes in architecture, like Calatrava. Goed choice of POV to create an interesting composition,
