Happy talk, lovely colors and architecture.     A great shot of what looks like an interesting conversation.

the photo is unique because you don't expect people talking instead of going up the steps.

Wonderful shot!  There is also a small stone holding the door closed and a string is tied between the door and the bell which can sound when someone opens it! Definitely looks ancient! :)

Every thing in this shot, upto the bolt on the door, and the small bell are standouts,along with the two men in conversation. To say nothing of the walls,and steep steps. A good,and very interesting picture. 

Are they both 'holy men'? I think so. j.e.s........

I wonder how many have fallen off these stairs which are so narrow to the walls and yet have no protective rails.

Nicely done. Symmetric without stress. Both men's attitude is pleasant and relaxed. Well seen :)
