20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Frosted Color

I photographed a massive abandoned institution - a former resort and later a sanitarium. As I walked down a dark hall, a window with beautiful colors caught my eye. The exterior colors were bleeding through the frosted window glass. The window looked like a watercolor painting - soft with contrasting dark vines. The hardness of the ceramic-walled hallway was a lovely contrast to the appealing colors and the subtle hint of green and yellow on the dark walls complemented the color wash in the window.
