Motel, Jeffrey Road, Wyoming, photo by Matt Slaby

I love the tension between welcome and desolation in this scene, the contrast between the jaunty top-hat and the odd yes/no take on the usual vacancy sign. It took me four or five looks at this to realize it wasn’t a shot of a mirror reflection but the view out the rear window of a van.
