Hidden Within the Walls

“If walls could talk,” they say. But what about stairs? Have you ever wondered how many people have climbed a set of stairs? Staircases fascinate me and for my next project  I intend to do a series of staircase paintings. These are the stairs hidden behind our wall (Due to a need to run wire for smoke alarms, holes had to be cut so I took advantage of the opportunity and stuck the camera through the hole). This place would have been so beautiful in its day. I’ve lighten a couple of the photos to see the wallpaper and bannister better. Not sure of the age, but if I can believe the stories I’ve heard the second floor was added much later that the original first floor. Beautiful but kinda creepy too. Hopefully, I will have stirred up the ghosts and they will come out to say hello.
