Sub grunge doorway

The subway section of Chicago’s L train system is the home to many of these doors to nowhere. They look better in photos than they do in person. I shot this door about 25 times trying to get the framing just right, but the wires, rust and cutout are all a bit off, making things look skew no matter the crop. I was drawn to the red bulb and the tiny bulb over the door. I also liked the way the rust cut through the smudging on the wall.
