If Walls Could Talk

Milan layover, photo by JainSteffanie O'Hanlon is working on a new book, "The Secret Life of Hotels" which is a compelling title. Some of her images for the project are posted here on her gallery. The publisher is Chicago's Columbia College imprint, the Center for American Places.

Steffanie is a psychotherapist and a photographer, a winning mix for our times. Hearing about her book reminded me of a layover in Milan. I shot this image while fiddling around and it is only of interest to me. Most rooms I don't recall but often I have wondered things such as who slept in this bed or looked in this mirror before me.
