Bodie State Park - Lottie Johl House
This was the first shot I set up and photographed on the photography workshop in Bodie that gave us access to the inside of houses. This view greets you as you open the door and, since the door doesn't have a window or any openings, this particular view was not one I could have photographed except through the workshop. The morning light was just starting to enter the house when we stepped in and the shot of three doors looking down the hall immediately made me stop. Looking back, it's not actually the best composition or most interesting photograph from the day. But it does bring back memories of walking into that house and how I felt in those first few moments. After that, it was a case of looking around and trying to quickly determine what to photograph next. We had "all morning" but the light changes quickly and there were several other locations we wanted to visit.
