Staircase to Nowhere

A Skywatch Friday photo. More Skywatch images at the Skywatch Site!

Seen on my explorations of Grey Lynn. Cirrus clouds framing a spiral staircase in a backyard. I found myself humming Tevye’s song “If I were a rich man”: … There could be one long staircase just going up, and one even longer going down. And one more leading nowhere just for show.

I don’t think they had the two long staircases, though.


  1. Interesting post. Right, not the stairway to heaven anyway 😉

  5. It does not matter which way you climb the stairs, the view is all the same. A lovely piece of work.

  6. So, do you know what happened to the house this was in?
