Bethlehem Window

PHOTOGRAPHER’S JOURNAL: From the outside, windows tease and mystify, becoming dusty, dark and labyrinthine passages though imagination. From the inside only rarely do they live up to expectations. This one at the mill in Bethlehem, PA, held on to it’s secrets until I found the hidden second stair that led to the third floor. Although I never found my way into the “L,” at one end of the elusive stairwell I found this window. The photo is an experiment in grunge.

For me, Ted, you can almost never go wrong with grunge, in the right context. This one is right! :)

Thanks for the encouragement. Having just come physically from the greasy factory, I'm not sure I agree on it's universal beauty, but I guess wallowing in it is the wrong context.
