This handicap ramp is a modern afterthought without much thought to aesthetics. I like your composition with the depth of the ramp and the arches.

I love how the eye is drawn into the path of what might be heaven.

That's a thoughtful addition for wheelchairs and baby carriages.

Your ramp to heaven/cathedral is better than a slippery slope.

Encantador blog el tuyo, un placer haberme pasado por tu espacio.

Saludos y un abrazo.

I really like the contrast of the brick wall to the arched area next to it.

The decision to help people by installing this kind of ramp was a good one! Since we are in EU, we find them here too.

Ramps are good - they can be used by everyone. :))
