Spiral staircases are a common subject for many photos it seems. The twisting lines are almost hypnotic, but am I just stealing the work of the architect? It is a pretty obvious target for the photographer.
This particular stairway, which is really more of a ramp, is in the Vatican museum but it is not being used anymore. The entrance and lobby was expanded and modernized a number of years ago and the traffic now by-passes this feature.
But I could not help myself and took the picture.
