Stairway to Heaven - Stairs Series


























































There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven
......

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady, can't you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all is one and one is all, yeah
To be a rock and not to roll.
And she's buying the stairway to heaven.

What a nice selection of photos you have shared.I always enjoy hearing different covers of this song.Robert Randolph is on a European tour now, and they do some older cover like this. They are one of my favorites.

joo said...

I love this series! Couldn't say which photo is my favourite - simply great!

Two Tigers said...

This is a beautiful series, from the abstracts to the more realistic street scenes. I especially like the first one, which seems as if someone has placed that ladder there to catch what could be a falling star at the left! Good works.

Karina said...

Scară la cer
ultima poezie a lui Marin Sorescu

Un fir de păianjen
Atârnă de tavan.
Exact deasupra patului meu.

În fiecare zi observ
Cum se lasă tot mai jos.
Mi se trimite şi
Scara la cer - zic,

Mi se aruncă de sus.

Deşi am slăbit îngrozitor de mult
Sunt doar fantoma celui ce am fost
Mă gândesc că trupul meu
Este totuşi prea greu
Pentru scara asta delicată.

- Suflete, ia-o tu înainte.
Pâş! Pâş!

Marty said...

what a stunning set of images !
interessant and really beautiful !

robert said...

Vocea interioara imi spune: Robert nu ai inteles nimic! Poti doar sa te bucuri de frumusetea lor, dar nu esti in stare sa pricepi ... "scanteia".

Trebuie sa fi cautat mult de exemplu sa gasesti o fereastra albastra si o usa maronie. Interesant vad unii viata!

Adevarul ca acum cativa ani nu ma vedeam vorbim despre fotografie. Si uite, acum am ajuns sa imi dau cu parerea despre "geniul" tau.
Iertate-mi fie vorbele, Maestre!

Kevin P. said...

Bravo pour vos photos qui sont vraiment d'une très grande qualité ! Je suis vraiment impressionné par votre talent de photographe ! Je ne me lasse pas de me balader sur votre photoblog! Bravo !

Fram Actual said...

You have selected one of my all-time favorite songs, Wind. It is one of the very, very few of which I remember where I was and what I was doing when I first heard it, which indicates the sort of profound affect it had upon me.

And, you have combined it with a set of beautiful and artistic photographs. This post might remain in my mind for a long time, too, because of this unique combination of music and photography.

I prefer ancient, stone steps above all others, and I see some in your photographs I would greatly love to climb and to pause and sit for a while.

Trevor Woodford said...

Another wonderful - very high quality set of images. Fantastic..!

gavin hart said...

Wonderful series of stairways! I like every single image in this group. You had my attention even as the first image was downloading. I like the first one the best; it really is looking into the heavens; great composition, love the aircraft contrail in the top left of shot. I love your blog! :)

T. Becque said...

Your compositions are mind blowingly beautiful.

shaman said...

Extraordinare foto. Cel mai mult imi place cea cu treptele in diagonala si cu apa (a 3-a)

Alan said...

Fantastic photos! They're all stunning! In general I'm not too keen on climbing stairs, but I'd love to climb those!

Alberto Oliver said...

The best stairway to heaven here is the one you bring with this collection of wonderful images. 1000 different ways to aboard a subject and 1000 different ways to express and idea. To lift ourselves to heaven, by all the means available,imagination, faith,,hope. . .
It seems like my PC is working now. These have been difficult and bitter days. But after any challenge,,the learning and a new beginning. That is the better,,the promise of a new beginning,,but above it all, to enjoy the support and encouragement of the wonderful friends like you dear Daliana. thaks for all your words, your optimism, well, thanks for be there. I will never forget such a fantastic gesture.
and ok,,lets start making the rock to roll again,, maybe one day we could get to the goal.
Hugs,my best wishes,,and have a beautiful nice day.

Vasile Covaciu said...

excelent iar.Imi place cum le combini intre ele.aparent fara nicio treaba dar totusi...
scarile care te urca sau te coboara.e vorba despre viata pana la urma ,nu?

Addiction said...

So happy to have found you!

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

stairway to heaven ? a greate theme and well done

FreeSeoDesign said...

Daliana, iti urmaresc blogul de mult timp si tot nu pot sa ma obisnuiesc cu ideile ce le ai pentru serii. Imi place modul cum prezinti articolele.

ionelmuscalu said...

Eu sunt un om pe niște scări, pe lângă niște foste garduri, dar scările acestea sunt cele pe care iți dorești sa mergi, indiferent dacă ști unde mergi, fiindcă ele conving!

Lasse said...

Brilliant and excellent series !!
Congrat !

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Hi Wind, magnificent series. I am fascinated as you know by steps and stairs so this is a real treat. There are many stories and photograph techniques here once again & you have proved that lifeless set of steps is not always the only choice.... you spoil us with such talent !! I started making a list of the images I liked but there are too many. The ease of ascent on the escalator shot is contrasted with the difficulties that the cat seems to have in the last shot !!
Have a good weekend, regards, J

Dorado said...

Increíble serie de fotos... no te perderé la pista...

shshnoselocuentesanadie said...

Alain Alexandre said...

I love textures and colours, a very talking image of felt tone; peace in our hands.

Luzia said...

And this is a super serie, too! My favourite is the last "catwalk" to heaven;-)) Hugs from Luzia.
