Jack is already inside the hotel the first time we see him, and and we won't see him outside until near the end of the movie when he briefly runs into the (hallucinated) hedge maze. The movie ends with Jack inside the black and white photograph nearby him now - here at the beginning the story is already joining back with the end, like the opening credits scrolling backwards. In the bottom left hand corner a man relaxes with a camera pointed at you. You are watching him with your camera, together we create a mirror. The front door of the hotel on the left can be seen in a mirror placed next to it. The pillars of the hotel are red, in fact there will be a red accent in every scene from this moment on.
