This is something very special, you can only observe on Greek islands; painting the steps in bright colors.
Like here in "Aegean Blue" . This what I call : joy of life !
Ancak Yunan adalarında eşine rastlayabileceğiniz bir mimari özellik ; dik sokakların basamaklarını canlı ve de göz alıcı renklerle boyamak. Buradaki tipik "Ege mavisi" . Buna yapılabilecek tek tanım var : yaşam zevki !

même les escaliers sont peints en bleu, je n'ai jamais vu celà!
néanmoins c'est une belle couleur, mais je préfère le blanc des maisons avec....smiles
merci de ce partage

Lovely blue stairs. A charming old street in great colors and textures. Well taken, enjoy a fine Sunday.

This was truly a blue voyage, the colour of the Mediterranean spilling into the village. It was a clever idea, whoever did it, to paint the steps which definitely brighten the view, and a fine POV from where to show them. The red flower-pot is a fine addition which balances the colour very well.

It's a fascinating sight that makes me wonder about the difference in attention spent on the stairs compared to the facades of the houses.
The big red flower pot fits nicely in this image.
Best regards, Paul

Very fascinating and unusual that blue with the gray of the stone! Usually we are used to seeing him with the white. Bravo to propose this certainly special and unusual.
Best regards, Nino.

as i see from your photos from Symi,the island must be my next travel destination.
Fascinating the blue painting of the stairs as the lead in the eye to the top of it and creates depth in the image.Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

I love how you have chosen to fill most of your frame with the blue stairs. They give a joy of life indeed.I enjoy the contrst of colour and texture between steps and buildings. The pot is perfectly placed for a pleasing composition.
ps Everywhere we see aegean blue in Greece. Can you tell me where the paint comes from.How is it made and from what?

un particolare molto molto colorato, attira l'attenzione e, come dici tu, mette allegria.

Nice composition and well spotted contrast between the stairs and grey wall.
Greetings from Dublin.

scales so can only lead to heaven, joke, blue tone is fascinating that reminds me a lot of lapis lazuli, contrasts very well with that of the old houses...

wow...the blue springs out my screen. I found this image ubusual because i'm used to see the white walls against the blue steps. I see for the firt time like this.

Merhaba, my friend Mesut,
I like the great chromatic power that offer us these steps painted with a vivid blue, which you have caught as main element of your beautiful and simple composition, and that they have a strong contrast with the tones of the stone and of the plants.
A good framing for a very showy photo.

Good looks a different world totally never seen before all blue steps-staircase. A grand image and one so natural to the area certainly a visual overload in cheery vibrant and absorbing blue! The format is ideally suited emphasising the sense depth and height.
You have certainly brought this image to life of a fine visual description of local Mediterranean characters. Excellent, Congrats

Photos of incredible colors but we all know are part of Greek folklore and is a characteristic of very nice. The photo 's have taken so perfect with a nice division of contrasting colors. Thank you for sharing.
Warm Regard's have a nice time ... Marino

Das ist ja der farbliche Wahnsinn! Dieses Blau in den alten Mauern erzeugt einen atemberaubenden Effekt und lässt den Fotografen wahrscheinlich jubeln ... ;-) Der Kontrast zur Umgebung könnte nicht größer sein. Ist das ein Ausdruck von Lebensfreude ?!
Ein tolles Foto!
Alles Gute !

I rather see a waterfall slowly flowing step by step down the narrow street.
Its vivid color contrasts beautifully with the historic wall.
Quite an eye-catcher indeed!
