This picture has some personal history for me. I first saw this room when I was a kid traveling with my parents. Dad took a slide but there wasn't a lot of light, he had a SEARS 35mm camera and there's a lot of vibration in the room. So his shot was, well let's just say it was kind of shaky.


So when I was there some 50 years later, I made sure I got a sharp picture. In fact, I took the tour specifically to get this shot.


There are millions upon millions of versions of this picture out there. It's a stop on the tour. Some of you know I dislike taking the same shot as everyone else. But this is an exception. It has some history for me, I solved a technical problem that my Dad had, AND it checks a LOT of boxes as far as photo composition goes. It's now one of my all time favorites.


You can read my original comments in the link below.


This is a redux of this picture


Technical: Recropped, perspective correction and tone adjustments. And the the blue recycling bin in the lower right of the original has...vanished.
