The other day I blogged about street art on a set of stairs in Amman. Today I have a few photos that I took on a different set of stairs. They too were popular with locals and tourists, with small shops and a restaurant. The difference is that this one had umbrellas.
below: Standing near the top of the stairs, high above Prince Mohammad Street. Open umbrellas in shades of blue and purple are strung overhead to provide some shade and some colour. On the right is a tall metal structure – that is an elevator for those who don’t feel like taking the stairs.
below: There were a lot of little flower pots attached to the walls. Some were painted in bright colours and some were terra cotta brown.
below: A line of flower pots on a white wall where people have written numbers, dates, names, and messages, especially proclamations of love with little hearts.
below: Listen to the sound of your heart. It seems like Dalal loves Eyad.
below: A row of “books” under the window – they don’t seem to have titles.
On Ahmad Bin Hanbal Street, close to where it connects to Prince Muhammad, there is a set of stairs leading upward. Because Amman is built on a number of hills, stairs like this are many (although not all of them are painted).
