This photo was shot on a staircase of an very old building in Zadar, Croatia. My daughter was at the ground floor looking up at me. I duplicated the stairs to the right side because the composition and the motif reminded me of a Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher whose works I have admired since childhood. His work features exploration of infinity, reflection, symmetry, perspective, impossible objects, etc.
