Stairs

If these old stairs could talk, what do you think they would say?

Other than, “Why did you take the roof off the house?”

This image was taken at a site where a 17th century home is being disassembled by hand. The core construction appeared to be post and tenon style. The house is being taken apart piece by piece so it can be reconstructed at another site on a modern, new foundation. The foundation here was sagging under centuries of use, and could not be easily updated.

I’m happy with the photo, though perhaps a higher aperture would have made for less bokeh, and in this case, sharper focus on both the stairs and the rails.
