Today. This shot was taken in a hallway in the Fisher Building in downtown Chicago. I was kind of going for a creepy - Little Shop of Horrors feel with the post processing on this one, which is interesting after finding out that the building was architected by Daniel Burnham. If you have ever read the book The Devil in the White City, you would know that Daniel Burnham was the main architect behind the Colombian Exposition in 1983 held in Chicago.
"The book intertwines the tales of two men: Daniel Burnham, the chief architect and mastermind of the Exposition, and H.H. Holmes, inadvertently created a perfect setting for Holmes, one of America's first serial killers."
Holmes would lure young women to him, then violently murder them, selling their remains for scientific studies.
