104/365 Stairs

"Stairway to Heaven"

This is not "my" church; it is Oak Lawn United Methodist Church in Dallas, the church that kindly allows Resounding Harmony to rehearse in their sanctuary.  I like the red steps and the places where the paint and the concrete are worn.  I like the way the steps lead to the doors.  Even the lens flare is starting to grow on me.

This is a beautiful building.  When I saw the the prompt of "stairs" fell on a Sunday, I knew that I would have several possible sets of stairs to shoot at OLMC.  We went early for rehearsal this afternoon to allow time for picture taking.  I am still getting used to my new camera so having extra time was definitely a plus.

Though the above picture is my official POTD, I took several others that I liked.  Today was one of those days where it was hard to decide which photo was "the one."  

Here are the others.  Any thoughts?

I like this one because of all the lines and the somewhat odd symmetry.  But maybe that makes it too busy?? Hmm . . .

I like the fact that this one is at an angle and looks down on this strange little door that actually goes under the main stairway shown above.

I like the way the colors divide this one into horizontal thirds and the rail almost cuts the frame in half.  I wish that I hadn't chopped off the tops of the arches.
