Hotel Scene: floodlights and rain
My side of the hotel faced the turnpike, which could account for those extremely bright floodlights, lighting the way for weary, moth-like travelers. On my last morning in Oklahoma, heavy rain on the windows diffused the light…but not very much.
PS: Today would have been my dad’s 98th birthday. He and my mom lived in Stroud, Oklahoma, where this photo was taken, for a short while in the mid-1950s. I almost never plan out my photos to be posted on any particular day, so it was a just a coincidence that this one landed on his birthday. (I think that sometimes the Photography Gods are doing some behind-the-scenes work.)
