Perfect composition in black and white

An amazing and well framed photograph. It is visually interesting all by itself, but knowing the subject, one wonders about the stories that could be told.

Stairway to Heaven

"There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven"

Haunting

Yesterday upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
Oh, how I wish he'd go away.
