I like this picture in a philosophical way. Looking for light from darkness. Here is the analogy The camera's viewfinder is our mindset. The subject is joy or anything that will make you feel happy and content. The foreground is current unhappy or rather unsuccessul state. A pessimist who wants to reach to the light is afraid of the area in darkness(the foreground). If you are an optimist that darkness will not bother you. So everything depends on our mindset. Hope is always good.

Me too, I quite like this one as well, and lovely mind who thought it out (both pict and words). One question, are you an optimist or a pessimist?

This is a good philosophy that I completely share with you - our minds and perceptions of the world around us create our experience and the people we come in contact with. The experience is most often neutral but through our lens we apply labels like good or bad, scary or exciting etc.

Agree with you on my shot today - would be a good exercise to add some detail back into the room

have a good weekend!

I'm an optimist. Lately I came to the realization that with our minds we imediately brake out of any darkness. Change the lense with which you see, erase all that's not real and suddenly all around you IS light. It's all in our perception, going back to the essence is the key because everything is just energy, follow it.

Looking at the shot and reading what you've written, my title for this shot would be 'Stairway to Heaven'.

Hi. I love the beautiful way you've captured an otherwise ordinary stairway, and the concept you represent it with is just priceless! Well done. I like very much.
