Elkhorn, Montana

This is a shot of the upstairs area in the Fraternity Hall building. Note the twin orbs of light in
the doorway of the closet or cloakroom. They were not visible when I made the shot but the digital
camera picked them up. They could be the result of lens flair but then again maybe not. I was using
a lens hood at the time and I wasn't getting lens flare anywhere else. As a matter of fact, it was
not a sunny day but rather a cloudy rainy day with some thunder and lightening, and the rain turned to
snow for awhile.

Lovely use of lines and shadows to make this picture stands out.
