Print: Full Bed and Art

I recently made a return trip to the abandoned Indiana Days Inn I found a few months ago. This time I actually got to explore the interior of the hotel. Simply put, the place is massive. There's a total of 4 floors, each with 50 or so rooms. The first two floors are mostly still boarded up and are pitch black, while the top two floors are pretty open. This photograph shows one of the beds in a 3rd floor room. You can't even tell what the artwork was supposed to depict, as the mold has completely devoured it.

I used my Pentax 6x7 with a 45mm f/4 Takumar lens, and Kodak T-Max 400 film. The physical gelatin silver print is 11"x 8".
