@grouser: Countless times in the city I have seen things that needed to be photographed, and I began to bring a camera on more of my walks. Sometimes it pays off. Thanks, mister g.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

If he gets lost in there, they will never find him !

@Ronnie 2¢: Ha ! Even though he's apparently a construction worker, he would be easier to spot because his clothes are cleaner than those tiles.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Excellent selective coloring which makes this stairwell an inviting place!!
