    K5 and the Ghost In The Window

    This is a shot of the back exit of the old Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas. To understand how big this hotel is you need to visit this site.

    The hotel was built in 1929 and has been abandoned for the last 30 years. It totally dominates the skyline of Mineral Wells and it has a very interesting history. There have been many reports of the old hotel being haunted and that's why the title "Ghost In The Window"

    I have got to find a way to gain entry to this place. It is amazing.

    Looks good...but not exactly inviting for a stay. I'd wake up not knowing if it is a breeze or a ghost.

    I like the tones a lot. It has a certain timelessness.

    Bottom right window pane with just a little imagination.

    Doesn't take all that much imagination; are you sure you want to gain entry?
    Judging from the condition of the window, it can't be too difficult to get in - getting out is what would concern me.

    Nice shot BTW

    Very nice. I can see why you're tempted to get inside. But hard hat, visibility vest and companion advised!
    Listen to my new album "The Drones" free on BandCamp. Visit my Flickr images, website, or blog. Cheers!
