Steps to nowhere
They once led somewhere, to be sure.
But now the original building is long gone.
Yet the steps remain.
So I've started to take photos of them.
I suppose other cities have steps to nowhere, as well.
But perhaps because Atlanta is a city with many single-family homes and standalone office buildings, the steps seem to stand out...or maybe pile up quicker.
As a reporter, I traveled to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. And Atlanta's steps to nowhere have the odd echo of the properties I saw in Biloxi where all that remained of a house might be the foundation. Or the steps.
