1. I don’t know why, but I like this.

    Okay, I am sure that just led you to think, “Thanks…?” Like a backhanded compliment… I guess, that as subject matter it’s nothing at all spectacular, just a set of steps, but, it’s just so appealing too at the same time… the tones, the in focus areas, the slightly soft out of focus areas, mixed with the soft tones, just all melt together to just give a pleasing look. So, I guess that is why. 😉👉🏼

    PS: For a boring, technical web thing of note – is there a way you can go in and decrease either the margin and/or padding in your header’s height? You have it as a sticky/floating header that once one scrolls down enough it stays at the top, but with your vertically aligned photos, it’s sort of annoying, because you can’t then see the full height of your image all at once, because then the height of your page’s body is smaller… so, have to scroll up and down in order to see the top and bottom portions separately in the images… it’s only like maybe 10px that gets cut off, but still. And maybe it’s just because I am viewing it on a laptop, and perhaps a desktop with a lot more screen real estate it is no issue. Though, just tried on my iPhone, and your site’s mobile version is better at handling it, and can see the full image just right in it. So, like I said, no big whoop, just an annoying thing I found while viewing on my laptop is all. 😬

  2. Thanks, Jeff. I’ll admit that I was surprised that you liked it. Certain elements of the courtyard at that angle reminded me of a sort of Bauhaus abstract painting or something. Lining up the triangular light post base between the railings is what completed it for me. The idea, in my view, really is to not think about what the objects are in reality and just treat the whole image as though it is an abstract painting.

    Re: technical issues. Thanks for bringing it up. I’ve noticed the same thing on my laptop. I’ve been meaning to try to get in the guts of my WordPress theme and work on that … i really need to get on it .

    EDIT: oh btw I’ve found that clicking the photo on my laptop and thereby loading the image in a light box at least displays the full image in my laptop monitor. Kind of a work around til I get the header padding reduced.

      Good view to have, and agree… good job.

      Oh, yeah, look at that, it sure does… never noticed that before… that works. 😉
