Doorways to Color


Flintstones Bedrock City is an aging tourist attraction along the highway to the Grand Canyon. Visitors can wander through the "rock" houses, each building -- and sometimes each room within a house -- painted in a different garish color. When I saw these doorways between white, yellow, and green rooms, in soft side-lighting, I found a small bit of transcendent beauty in an otherwise tacky tourist trap.
