Song-ography, the "Stairway to Heaven" edition...

"There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven...

"Stairway to Heaven"
Bethlehem Steel
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

...When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh and she's buying a stairway to heaven."

-Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin)

A stairway that stretches up into the sky. Found at the shut down and abandoned Bethlehem Steel Plant in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  I will be posting more photos from this dinosaur of a relic in the upcoming days.  There was beauty to be found in the rusting and deteriorating decay.  "Your stairway lies on the whispering wind."


Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Song-ography where the "rules" are very simple:

Song/Lyric + Photo(s) = Song-ography

While I appreciate all those who choose to link up, I urge you to please only do so if your posts embrace the purpose of Song-ography.  Thank you! Looking forward to stopping by and seeing what songs and photography inspired you this week!

  13. Looking forward to seeing more creative shots of the staircase and other areas of the steel plant. Can't think of any other lyrics that would be even remotely as good! #songography
