Kid in amphitheater

The photograph shows a child climbing up the stairs from the underground tunnels towards the open-air auditorium of the roman amphitheater of Catania, Sicily. The perspective creates a sort of visual paradox insofar as the child seems to be standing on what is actually the top of the stairs descending towards the point where he is parting from.
