Thematic Photographic 36: "Up" v.2.0 - Up the Down Staircase

Atlantic Beach, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Someone pointed out in the comments on my offering of the stone steps last week that they didn't just go "down", they also went up. And I had to admit, there's truth to that. So in the interest of equal time, I submit for your approval these wooden steps leading up from (and down to) the strand at Atlantic Beach. But really, the "down" stairway is at the other end of the walkway. It goes to a parking lot and after the beach, that's gotta be a "downer".Violence Unsilenced

Yep, I'd choose the beach over a parking lot any day. :D

I'd love to be climbing these steps under the sunshine right now!

Perfect title! It's just so much easier going down than it is to go up the down staircase. I like how the stairs really blend in with the landscape.

Holy cow. One-way steps at the beach. Guess that's how you know the crackers on vacation from the locals.

These steps tell me it's a long walk to summer!

Cool shot, Mojo, and they most definitely go UP! LOL!

You made me dream of warm beach day, I suppose they will come someday. :) I love your UP! And I love the thought of one-way steps, but bet it would be hard to enforce. :)

Pictures that play my one's sense of perspective totally rock the house.

I can practically feel the blown sand here. Feels nice and warm, come to think of it.

I so need to get back to a beach. And soon.
