The shining |
September 19, 2006
Today I came home to the welcoming sight of a building-wide brown out. I parked in darkness and as I fumbled my way to the elevator with only the light of the exit sign, I thought, "Hey, this would make a cool picture..." Tomorrow the headlines read: "Photographer found mugged in unlit basement, car and camera stolen."
I proceeded upstairs and most of the lights in the hall were dimmed or off. Something about it -- maybe just the novelty, made it really interesting to me, so I brought out my tripod for a few photos. Whenever people come over to my place they tell me that it reminds them of a hotel or Kubrick's The Shining. I've never seen the movie (ugh, inexcusable, I know) but this is how I would imagine it to be.
