Thematic Photographic - Distant

Every week Carmi at Written, Inc. poses a theme for photographic inspiration. This week's theme is DISTANT.

After a transcontinental flight, you finally check in to your hotel. It's late; you're jet-lagged. Home is far away. The lobby is quiet, the coffee shop closed. Somewhere the sound of a vacuum cleaner drones. The night clerk is polite, but you're too tired to do more than smile.

You take the elevator up to your floor, and step out into the hallway. Have you ever had one of those dreams where you're running and can't reach your destination? Suddenly the door to your room seems impossibly distant.

Hallways like this always remind me of "The Shining"

This is a great shot! I would have to capture that, too, just to show what color NOT to use in a hotel hallway! I would have had nightmares!

Oh my goodness! Been there. Done that. Where do hotels find carpeting like this? Sigh, all those doors and long corridors and jeepers I'm carrying all this luggage where is the room they assigned us too? Great idea for a post!
