The theme for May is Staircases, and in the words of the person who proposed it first, Bernhard:
I would say we can keep the scope a bit wide, i.e., as long as it consists of steps and is used by people to climb up or down something.
- 1 photo per answer.
- You may submit more than 1 answer per user. But keep it to no more than 3 posts.
- Try and keep it non offensive.
- All entries should include a line of text with the location and subject of the photo and when the photo was taken, date for recent photos, month for 'a few years old' and year only of old ones.
- The photo has to be taken by the user* who posted it and taken in the time frame given in the description for that month's photo. (*Or one of a two people team, give credit to the actual person who took the photo, nick names are acceptable.)
- Remember we are 'Travel' stack exchange. If you can give the photo or its description a travel connection, you should get more votes (and/or stand a better chance on getting the virtual prize.)
The next rules changes per month, the subject of the picture and its 'when it was taken'.
For the month of May I would like to set the rules:
- The photo can have been taken anytime.
- The subject of the photo is Staircases.
- The photo should not be of people, as such, but it is rather likely that one or more will be in the picture. If so, either in such a way you can not recognize them or you should have permission to post their photo online. It is up to the person posting the photo to make sure that it is up to the laws of the country where the picture was taken.
- No entries/photos should be posted before midnight, 1st of May 2019, voting will run till midnight, the last seconds of May 2019* and to be clear, we use UTC, just like the site itself. (*Or as soon after as your main judge can see the votes.)
If you want to join in sharing themes for future competitions, please see the suggested topics question.
Just edit your suggestions into the community wiki answers there.
And to have a say in which one will be selected next month, do a suggestion, soon after a month started, in the You Are Here chat.
Be ready to defend your choice for a while, as more people might post suggestions.
Please do not delete posts if you do not get upvotes (or even get down votes.) It is what you entered, stand by it. You can post two more entries to change your luck.
@Tor-Einar Jarnbjo you win the bragging rights, highest voted photo this month. @gmauch, you win the virtual prize, for hiding the man sized steps the best of any of the photos in this competition.
