Light My Way

Light My Way

Up a narrow, steep, wooden staircase, where each step has been worn smooth over the years, this doorway leads to a small temple. The man had just unlocked the door and lit a few butter candles on the alter before coming out. I was fascinated by the colors and detail around the doorframe, and had already set up my tripod and camera to capture this when the man appeared. He must have been surprised by my tripod because he stopped dead in his tracks just as I pushed the shutter. I was certain he would move during the 1.5 second exposure, but he remained almost perfectly still without being asked. One of those instances where luck played a huge role in getting the shot.
