National Geographic has wowed us millions of times with its jaw-dropping images, but recently one picture managed to strike a nerve in many of its 75 million followers on Instagram.
At first look seems like there is nothing wrong with this inviting and adventurous picture of a woman standing on a train track. If you think so, then my guess is that you are probably not aware that this is an illegal practice that`s also very, very dangerous. Instagram users and photographers were very critical towards National Geographic for promoting this risky idea. Not that long ago a pregnant model in Texas was killed by a train while posing on the tracks.
Here are just a few of the comments on National Geographic`s instagram feed:
So far the image has around half million likes, but many photographers are concerned that this image might encourage amateurs to put their life at risk for one perfect shot.
