Ruby Tuesday 2 - Curving

Ruby Tuesday 2 reappears, and we comply with the one simple rule: red, any shade and either a lot or a little!

The burgundy staircase sits in our church in Derby. The 1821 building offers those brave enough to access the balcony and bell tower will find a narrow, steep and curvy climb up. The lack of safety will be obvious to to careful climbers and potentially dangerous to the careless. I am unable to make the climb, so I'll leave the ascent to others...See ruby from all over at this fun meme, hosted by Gemma and MMT - thanks!

The burgundy is really set off well against the white. Pretty curvy stairs, is it a historic building?

Beautiful curved and oh, so steep staircase.
I've broken my ankle falling down a staircase, so I have the greatest respect for them. To my mother they are a life-threatening obstacle.

Love the curve of the steps and the sleek banister railing.
A lovely old set of stairs.
