National Geographic Your Shot

Stairway to Heaven | Photograph by Mike Kane
.
“I love the negative space in this location,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mike Kane. “I framed the lone figure within the leading lines as a human element to add scale and a hint of mystery. Who is he? Where is he coming from? Where is he going to?”

“There’s not too much to say. You simply have to stop and look at this photo. The background is just soft enough that it could be the sky, and the stairs lead straight up to it. The composition is so pleasant and straightforward. The stairs enter and leave the frames just at the corner, the man has begun his journey but still has a bit of walking to do through the frame. The way the light changes across the stairs makes me curious about the rest of the space. What’s so funny to me about this photograph is it is probably extremely direct, a staircase in a museum, possibly, that leads to the next exhibit, but when I look at it, I can’t help but think deep and dream big.” — @natgetravel Producer Marie McGrory (@mariemcg23)
