Around the corner, down the stairs, along the hall

Remember when you last stayed at a hotel, you leave your room and head to the restaurants for breakfast. As you are walking down the hallway you notice the cleaners are in one of the rooms with the door open. Do you walk passed and take no notice or do you have a little peak, just to see what the room is like or if it is any different to the room you have?

I slow my pace right down to pigeon steps and have a good look. I want to make sure that I take a long hard stare just to take everything in. 

It can be the same with a house, when people have their lights on and it is dark outside, which means you can see everything but wish you could see so much more. Or when you stand on a door step, the front door opens and you have a quick look. I mainly do it to see what art is on the wall, the decor of the parts I can see, to get an idea of taste and what the person would be like.

It always leaves me wanting more, I am a little greedy by not being happy with the parts I can see. The photos show what I mean and make you wish the photo was larger or showed what was around the corner or down the stairs.
