Abandoned Stairway

This spiral staircase leads up to a treehouse on my property. It was built by the previous owner of my house for his kids. The years have not been kind to it, and it has twisted, shifted and partially detached from the treehouse. Although it is probably unsafe to climb, it is an object of visual interest in my yard so I have been disinclined to remove it. When the theme of “neglect” was chosen for our photography club’s November assignment, I was naturally inspired to photograph it.
