To get the best photo, sometimes you just need to look up.
On his way to a Metro stop in downtown Los Angeles, Tyson Kindstrom heard some construction on the streets and decided to look up. He saw a man -- whom he assumed to be an urban explorer -- climbing a fire escape to the roof of a building.
He liked how the light and shadow formed a contrast on the building, so he snapped the photo with a black-and-white image in mind.
"It's not just a street scene," he said. "There's a little bit of an abstract feel to it if you look at it from a geometric perspective."
A few days prior, Kindstrom had been viewing urban explorer photography on Instagram, so he saw this as an interesting coincidence.
Kindstrom used a Leica M240 camera with a 50mm Zeis Planar lens to make the image March 8.
