was lit up only by the single dangling tungsten bulb from the room next to it.
At the bottom a century-old wood door barricaded the way to a once booming Butte storefront.
Open the door and it leads to nowhere,
the other side of the door now closed off when the downstairs storefront entrances were filled in.
The feet that shuffled in and out of this door when Butte was booming must have been in the thousands, tens or even hundreds of thousands.
And now this isolated door is left abandoned, with nobody to walk through.
Rylee and her outfit from Mirror Mirror worked perfectly here. The yellows and blues complimenting the shades of browns and creams in the door.
The hot, tangerine lights casting sharp shadows – chiseling Rylee’s cheekbones and lighting up her eyes. Lighting like the drama of the days past – if only this door could talk.
But doors can’t talk.
I, on the other-hand, can.
