Visitors to the Vatican Museum exit by walking down these large and richly decorated double spiral staircases, designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932. This is a highly popular and photogenic place. I wanted to capture something familiar yet somewhat different at the same time: a 180-degree view using a manual fisheye lens. Image converted to B&W to emphasize the shape and textures of these magnificent stairs.
