Towels on a bathroom shelf
Bathroom photography, Hudson Hotel, New York City
A hotel room provides a welcome refuge from chaos when you're otherwise running from event to event in a place that's completely alien and very far from the people who usually bring you comfort. In the relatively few free moments that I have when I'm attending a conference or similar event, I often use that blessedly quiet time to (unsuccessfully) calm myself down from the stress of the trip.
Sleep doesn't come easily in these places, which leaves me ample late-night free time to observe. I found this somewhat odd scene in, of all places, the bathroom. I liked the simple white-tile-and-chrome mood of the place. Nice and stark, with just enough ethereal backlighting to complete the scene.
Your turn: In your opinion, why am I obsessed with minute details of architecture? And what's with my sudden obsession with monochrome?
