Fire Escape 11

Here's a new addition to my fire escape photo series. If you can overlook the graffitis on the wall, you will find a beautiful and intricately designed fire escape on the side of this building located on 17th Street and Union Square West. Even the window at the bottom of the photo has a character to it.

So character trait do you love most about a person?

LOve the ironwork. I wish I could photograph every balcony in Paris!

Character traits? Honesty, kindness, sense of humor.

I think I love it when people tend to be open.

I don't think I've ever seen a fireescape so pretty. But then I'm from the bush so I don't see these like...ever!

Character traits. I like someone who you can just chat to. Every person who comes into work gets my usual welcome, "Hey, How ya goin' today?". The difference in responces are amazing. Some people are cheerful and tell you their life story, what they're doing today and the like...while others just ignore you!

Great photo!

I love that when I first met my husband, I loved his eyes and his voice.

You know i love your fire escapes so much. This is beautifully delicate in its design.

Character trait I most admire? Oh so many but kindness come high up the list.

This photo reminds me of one pic I took weeks ago and I will soon post it!
Well, I guess I love kind and open minded persons!

That is a cool fire escape. My building doesn't have any and I wonder how I would escape if there were a fire.
