This photo was taken in 2006 or 2007. I took it looking into the base of the Lambert Castle Lookout Tower that is on the top of Garrett Mountain Reservation. At the time the tower was in a great state of disrepair and decay. I held my camera up to the crack in the door and positioned it so I could see across to the other door. I tried to capture what was inside and was happy at the results. It is haunting – scary and sad.
Beyond the Door can be whatever you want it to be – something scary is right beyond the door, alien light is beyond the door, hope and promise is behind the door – whatever you want it to be.
