1 UPmanship

Sara of WordPress has us craning our necks and looking skyward, literally and metaphorically, for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: UP.

Well, I’m not a gamer nor a conniver. Far from it. But, 1 UPmanship seems like a pretty good title from which to respond to this week’s challenge.

The ink and visuals aren’t even dry from my most recent post, Up the Down Staircases, so I thought I’d use a few leftovers — frames that didn’t quite make it off the cutting-room floor — add a few new ones, score it slightly different, and take you back UP those staircases outside and inside apartment #1 — my humble abode.

Enjoy the short climb, I mean video, as I attempt to one-UP myself.

  1. You rose UP to a new level with this post and one-UPped us this time. Your new not-so-humble abode is now UP on a pedestal.

      1. Vivaldi is easy to recognize, but hard to tell which exact piece. Which one is this please? 🙂

  2. I enjoyed your video and I really like your picture. The contrast between the curves and straight line, the wood and the white stairs are particularly pleasing.
