This is an area not many locals or even tourists know. It is right behind the famous Amber Fort in Jaipur. I was there with a friend of mine on a Sunday afternoon for a causal photo-walk, instead we met for a discussion over a cup of tea, the walk was just an excuse. These steps lead to a famous Step Well called as the Panna Meena Ka Kund.

I call them divine as they lead to a source of water and water sustains life. 

Few Minimalist Words on the Composition

The photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry category of Minimalist Photography. I used the lines of the steps coming in diagonally from the left. This created a sense of depth in the photo. The sunlight on the upper half of the frame resulted in a gradient sort of effect.
