View On Black View it LARGE!


Before we left the 2nd floor of the book depository, I ran up one of the mountains of the books to get a view of the whole floor. I took a shot of it, but it wasn’t remarkable after looking through things at a later date. However, I turned around and saw this creepy doorway to the bathrooms. What’s even stranger is that this eerie man showed up wanting to steal the spotlight.
