Yes, it's a boring stairs.. but if you imagine that this was part of the (steps) way that Charles II escaped into exile to France.. He arrived at this house in the dark, through the back door, disguised as a peasant after he was defeated by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. He was exhausted, hungry, climbing up to this stairs and found himself in a warm room with a bed.. and the host, without knowing his true identity, gave him some biscuits, drink and dry clothes after days of being on the run and hiding...Does it make it more interesting?:-D
I'll put the outside of the house on the workshop for you to have a look. Thanks for looking.
It seemed that I had problem with the workshop..Back later.. or I may upload it as a photo tomorrow.

Yes, that story suddenly makes this staircase very much more interesting! But after a hard day and being beaten in battle, I think I'd need more than a couple of biscuits and a cup of tea to revive me.
I love your interior shots and, of course, that clever camera of yours with its high ISO capability and its in-built HDR gizmo must have helped a lot with the strong contrasts in the ligthting here. Yet we still can see wonderful details in the deepest shadows and also in the brightest parts of the image.
Fine composition with all the elements pleasingly arranged in the frame, lovely light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.
P.S. What a pity you couldn't get your workshop picture to upload. Still, I look forward to seeing an "exterior view" tomorrow!

This is a nice staircase, regardless of who walked up these stairs (and presumably down as well). You have used the light well, coming from two or three sources. The light falling on the steps, and through the railing, have created superb contrasts.

This is a beautiful staircase to photograph. The yellow light at the top of the stairs is very inviting.
Kind Regards, Ann
