Tree Fern and Spiral Stairs in the Palm House at Kew Gardens.
I really love the spiral staircase, and the round fern tree perfectly compliments the picture..
Thank you Sheetal
Beautiful shot my friend. The spiral stairway close to the giant fern are just perfect for one memorable photo. have a great day. Best wishes to your family.
Thank you my friend. Hope you have a great day too. Best wishes to you and yours
Great shot. Both the tree & spiral stair case are beautifully captured. Very thoughtful interpretation of this week’s challenge.
Thanks Arindam – I’m lucky I stumbled across this in my archive
I love the perspective on this and how your two subjects compliment each other. Great photo!
Man imitating nature – very nice image!
Thank you – It’s interesting how many plants grow their leaves in a spiral like that
very good similarity to two very different subjects. I like this picture and the take on theme. Lovely Capture.
As everyone has already mentioned, I really like the comparison between the ‘bult’ and the ‘natural’ here… very nicely done, Martin!
We have a very similar place near us (a large indoor garden / green house called ‘The Jewel Box) where my wife and I had our wedding reception. It has some really nice palms in it, too – and even a spiral staircase (although not nearly as ‘tall’) leading to a small balcony (if I’m remembering correctly). For a while I thought you might have snapped this one in St. Louis!
LoL Bob – sounds like a great place to hold a wedding reception. We had ours in the Trades Union Congress hall with its murals of the workers and their struggles as a back-drop
But one subject, two interpretations.
(I’ve been having my “issues” with this challenge — not sure I see it as valid.)
Hi Judith – you see one subject, I see two subjects with similarities of form that compliment each other. I guess that illustrates your point about the challenge – it’s very open to different interpretations
That luscious fern looks almost as though it is reaching out to embrace the staircase. Fantastic shot, Martin!
Hi Patti – they’ve got some carniverous creepers elsewhere that do just that. Dont think that they’ve embraced any visitors… but you never know
Martin, this is a stellar shot and great for the challenge!
Thank you Margie
That looks primordial . . . except for the guy on the stairs . . . and the stairs.
How do you know the guy’s not a dinosaur like me Thanks for popping in and giving me a smile Nancy
His camera gave it away . . . I knew this was NOT Jurassic Park.
Hang on… They had sniper rifles and electric fences in Jurassic Park – Kew Gardens can’t afford those to keep the predatory tourists away
I just wanted to see if you were awake . . .
I meant the Jurassic ERA . . . not Jurassic Park (the scary playland for mad scientists).
LoL – Birds never sleep – and presumably dinosaurs didn’t either… I’ve always got one eye open
Thank you Amar
Great entry Martin! Beautiful capture of the tree fern and spiral stairs. I also see two people in the shot. Really like the nicely balanced composition.
Hi Theresa – sorry I missed your kind comment. Having trouble keeping up with things over the last few weeks. Thank you for your thoughts on the composition
Wow, this is a beautiful and fascinating photo!!
Thank you Cathy
I love the movement in this photograph
Kate featured The Palm House today . . . and I recognized the spiral staircase thanks to your introduction. Here’s hers:
Ahhh! Kew Gardens
