Back in 2005, I captured this image on a cloudy and rainy day. In August of 2016, I returned to take another photo, but found that someone had fixed the door, moved a hinge and replaced the door handle. Furthermore, the conditions were completely different: instead of a cold, rainy day, it was hot and sunny. Try as I might, I wasn’t able to duplicate the original capture (which was also on film, for the record) – but I thought it was still an interesting lesson in lighting and composition.
