Illuminated only by the solitary streetlight that appears as a starburst in the night sky, the J.A. Kelley & Co. building sits bathed in a saturated blue light like the glow from an enormous television. A vague foreboding hangs densely in the unpopulated scene. William Eggleston made the mundane mysterious, transforming an ordinary building by using color, light and mood.
