Guardrails on a Stairway (SMASh #237)

It's Fri-Yay! Friday I mean :)

The weekend is waving in my side of the world and just a week left for the month of September, whew!

Anyway, I wouldn't want to miss the Shadow Hunters Challenge for the week and so here is my participation for Round 237.

Took these photos in the summer when we went to a hot spring out of town. We were descending through the narrow cemented footpath when I noticed the shadows of the pipe guardrails which immediately reminded me of the Shadow Hunters community.



I waited for the husband to go ahead and away from the scene so I'd be able to capture some clean shots. Looking at them today, I wished to have tried taking photos down the corner but perhaps the shadows would have been distorted? Or probably good too.

I think the guardrails worked multi-purpose, re: separating the pathway from the farm before it, also can be used by passersby to lean on to for a quick rest especially when ascending those flight of stairs and probably to guard anyone from falling off, lol!



And here are two closer range shots. My phone and arm shadows included plus half of my head, lol!


And I wouldn't miss to include the cute shadows of weeds growing by the side of the path. The jagged edge of the leaves are quite visible on the shade.



I'm glad such a great initiative exists here on Hive where we can share, see and showcase some fun and creative captures and learn from others too.

Thank you lots and I wish everyone a fantastic day (or night).

Photos are my own. 230922/08:30ph



Smile... laugh often... love more... be happy and grateful always!

That handrail would be really helpful for the farmers who brings lots of stuff while hiking those steps, extra grip.

All the best on the contest sista. !LUV

The gaurdraills and weed showing a very clear shadow in the picture.
They both gave you what you wanted.
Nice shot I guess the guardrails fulfilled an additional task,separated the pathway of the farm, used as a guards and also providing a shadow

Shadows are amazing, right, in the way they always change? To me, this looks like the line down a carriageway separating traffic. 🚗

I'm a total sucker for the shadows made by leaves.

Shadows do that and yes, it does look like that way :) Plant shadows are always fascinating especially when some details are shown.

Thank you and sharing some !LADY

Nice capture of the shadows of the guard rails.
For a slope like that, the guard rail would come in very useful, and as you said, there's multiple use for it.

I like the fact that they built handrails that long so that it would help the people to walk down easily and carefully. I wonder what those plants planted on the left side? They are too tiny so I cannot recognize them even if I zoom the photo. Lol!

Love these shots ate. Have some !PIZZA

They were potatoes growing beyond the rails. They just came out of the soil so they're small hehe

These are lovely shadow images but looking at the steps it does deserve a rail for support as the step is quite long. I could get weary climbing that. Lol

I'm guessing this is what you did 😂
The pathway looks steep and it's quite long as well, is it on a mountain or hill?
