Inside the St. Augustine Lighthouse, there is a strong undercurrent of darkness that permeates the core of the structure. Stairs and rails grab hold of this structure, and a window in the midst of all gives a view of the stray sunshine leaking in weakly as it continues to stand tall and majestic off the coast of Florida. The ghostly light transforms and morphs into a phantom image that begins to make its way around the white brick of the interior, clinging to a past that no longer includes them in a tangible way. How many souls have wandered here? The unique view clarifies the architectural immensity. Black metal curving up into unknown heights, then coming back down into darkening depths.
