14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This is an abandoned corridor inside the Baker Hotel inside Mineral Wells, Texas. Exploring this building was quite an experience. Since its doors shut back in 1972, not much activity other than vandalism, stooping, and decay has occurred within its walls. Rumors say the hotel is haunted but I'd say its just plain eerie. We explored 12 stories off the hotel and although the floor plan is symmetrical mostly throughout the building, each room and corridor was different than the next. I was happy to be a part of history and I'm grateful that I was able to capture and bring it to everyone.
