Every architect can build stairs, but smart architects can build beautiful stairs. Simply taking a picture of such stairs could be a piece. But, if the stairs are not artistic enough, smart photographers could still find a way to take a good picture, using different angles, techniques or contrasts.

The following are some excellent examples of how we can find beauty in the most common objects in our daily life. Let’s see how these simple lines and curves, combination of colors or lights turn into breathtaking pictures in the cameras of talented photographers.

  • i’m fainting following the steps…..

  • I had no idea stairs could be so beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • The stairs looks quite cool and very good too.

    Very innovative designs.

  • Absolutely inspiring. I specially like the spiral DNA-like staircase, it’s so minimalistic.

    I have an old cottage (1850) It has a small dog leg stair case, with very short steps. Going up is fine, but when you come down your toes and almost the balls of your feet are off the step, unless you turn your feet at an angle. I have fallen down them twice in 15 years. Once carrying a computer. some of these remind me of that. Style over substance.

  • Thanks! Its a great referece.
