Description This is an ascensor, basically speaking its an elevator to take one up to the residential areas of Valparaiso. Frankly speaking, if you don't have a car then next to a bus or taxi this is the only way to get up to the residential areas. The ascensors date back to the 1800's and are still in use all over the coastal areas of Chile. A ride up is about 60cents!
John Steele, Munich Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement I have been fortunate enough to live in some very beautiful places all over the world and while there I have taken all kinds of photos that I am now sharing with you. I currently live in Europe, so many of my new photos will focus on this but also look for my photo series from Chile as well as from San Francisco where I grew up.
I specialize in city scenes, skylines and just everyday street scenes. On any given day you could find me in cities all over just being the typical man about town with a camera. My photos are all personal to me in some way or another and that makes them all special.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them..............thanks!
