The long and well-lighted hallway


This is a pretty crappy hotel – cardboard boxes and other flammable stuff stored in the fire exit, lumpy pillows, exfoliating towels, etc. But it did have this going for it: a nice view of a long, lighted hallway.

So, there’s that.

  1. Tells such a story.


  2. I would have cropped the car out….


    • Sue, I tried that, but it didn’t seem like there was enough left over to be interesting. After I thought about it, I decided the car was part of the implied narrative of the story.

      If I’d had time I might have been able to frame the shot differently, but I only had time to make one quick, almost reflexive shot before that man in the hallway got away.

  3. Excellent, evocative image. I wouldn’t change a thing.
