Project Athena - Day 133 (Stairs)

Rhythmic Spirals

Progress has not followed a straight ascending line, but a spiral with rhythms of progress and retrogression, of evolution and dissolution.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The grand finale of stairs! Not one, not two, but three spiral staircases on the outside of the Old Main building on the Colorado University campus in Boulder. I could only fit two at a time in my camera frame but I thought this perspective, lying on the sidewalk shooting upward, was more interesting than the standard picture I've seen of these landmark stairs.

Today, I found the CU campus so inspiring and beautiful, I may even add it as a theme unto itself. The fall foliage was vibrant and fiery, the diversity of people stimulating, and the a architecture fascinating.
